At the AQHA West Level 1 Championship Show, held September 25-29 in Las Vegas, Nevada, two horses were given extra AQHA Ranching Heritage-Bred awards.

RWS Cuttin Class earned the top amateur award, and Border Patroller was the top youth award winner.

The awards are given to the top-placing Ranching Heritage-bred horse in each division, with the tie-breaker going to the horse that defeats the most 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.

RWS Cuttin Class is a 2016 sorrel gelding by Young Pobre and out of the Mr Holliday Pep mare Gingers Fancy Peppy.

He was shown by Adrianne Potwora of Eugene, Oregon. He is owned by Jacqueline Potwora of Eugene, and was bred by AQHA Hall of Fame member Georga Sutton of Gettysburg, South Dakota. 

Border Patroller is a 2009 sorrel gelding by Red Spotted Pup and out of the Red Mark Blanton mare Red Chili Mark. He was bred by Carl Kent of San Jon Ranch at San Jon, New Mexico, and is owned and competed by Kristin Bullard of Casper, Wyoming. 

Both owners will receive $250 and a specially designed ranch horse trophy. Both breeders will also receive a $250 bonus.
