The top horses in National Collegiate Equestrian Association competition have been honored for their achievements in the show pen. The top 10 horses were selected from each of the four events that the NCEA competes in – reining, horsemanship, equitation on the flat and equitation over fences.
Of the American Quarter Horse horsemanship horses that were honored, two shared the same breeder: Ernest and Jacqueline Bezley of Clements, California. The two horses, Acoosamatic and Missacoosa, are by the Bezleys’ stallion Acoosa (Coosa-Freeway Lady by Freeway Fox). Among his many accomplishments, Acoosamatic won world championships in Select and amateur performance halter geldings in 2008.
