Brandon Buttars Currently Leading NRCHA DT Horses Western Derby in Arizona

The National Reined Cow Horse Association is currently hosting the DT Horses Western Derby in Scottsdale, Arizona and Brandon Buttars had early success at the show.

Buttars has three horses out there and he is leading the Intermediate Open on one of them. Riding a horse owned by Lauri Peeks, This Cats The Mark, Buttars has a score of 222.5 points to be sitting at the top of the leaderboard.

Buttars has won multiple championship titles and it is looking like it might happen again.

To make it even better, Buttar’s son won the National High School Finals Reined Cow Horse Title on a horse that is also own by Peek.

The cutting is coming up this weekend before the riders compete in the fence work to determine the champion.

“We’ve got the cutting Saturday and Sunday and then we’ve got to do the fence work and you just never know until the fence work. We always say it comes down until the fence work so hopefully we can hold in until there,” Buttars said.
