Bobbie Can Do and Sidney Dunkel were the amateur world champions at the Zoetis VRH World, and earned the top Ranching Heritage-bred award in that show. 

The award is given to the top-placing Ranching Heritage-bred horse, with the tie-breaker going to the horse that defeats the most other horses. 

Ranching Heritage-bred horses are horses bred by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders. Anyone can show these horses, which are eligible for special events such as AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenges.  

The AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder program spotlights the quality horses produced by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders. The program is designed to showcase the qualities of a working ranch horse by recognizing the top Ranching Heritage-bred horses competing at major events. 

Ms Becaco Snakeyes is a 2012 mare by Mr Haida Flo and out of the Doctor Echo mare Becaco Snake Bit. She was bred by Beggs Cattle Co. of Fort Worth, Texas, and was purchased by Jackson when the mare was a green 2-year-old. 

Bobbie Can Do is a 2010 son of Cat Man Do out of the Mr Sorrel Bo mare Bo Bobbie Socks. The horse was bred by the W.T. Waggoner Estate and is a three-time Versatility Ranch Horse world champion, as well as a two-time reserve world champion in VRH and youth ranch riding.
