Cassidy Boggs swept the first-ever Riata Buckle Breakaway Futurity and Open, worth $13,575 for her and horse's sire and breeders.

Cassidy Boggs and her 5-year-old gelding Bet Hes Classified won the first-ever Riata Buckle Breakaway Futurity at the Lazy E Arena Nov. 3, 2022, with a time of 6.24 worth $3,280.

Winning the First-Ever Riata Buckle Futurity

Boggs rolled that time to the Open, winning that roping, too, worth $5,880.

Boggs and Bet Hes Classified, by Bet Hesa Cat out of Classified Dualin by Dualin Jewels, also won second in each go-round of the futurity with identical 3.12-second times for another $1,500. The horse is owned by Sterling Smith, and is bred by GHC Land & Cattle Company. Owners of Bet Hesa Cat earned $410 for the futurity win and $735 for the Open win, while GCH Land & Cattle won another $410 and $735. Boggs split third and fourth in the first round of the Open, worth $625.

Payout for The 2022 Riata Buckle Breakaway Futurity

The 2D futurity paid three holes in each division in each round, plus four in the average, as well as the breeders and stallion owners of each average-place winner for a total payout of $25,000. The Open was a #D, with $75,000 in added money. It paid five in the average, plus those stallions and breeders, and it paid four in each of the two goes.

Bet Hes Classified

“He was eligible, and I head a lot on him, but I knew he was ready to do something like this,” Boggs said. “He has been quite a few places, so he’s not as green. He scores, and he’s easy to catch on.”

The horse came from cutters Chris and Sunny Bates.

Cassidy Boggs And Bet Hes Classified Win First-ever Riata Buckle Breakaway Futurity & Open

“They’re just some friends—I actually gave their niece some breakaway lessons,” Boggs explained. “I’ve bought two horses from them now. One is headed to the NFBR and this one, well… they’ve just been great horses. Chris knows what I like, and he’ll call me and say I have this horse and you’re going to like him, and he’s been two for two. They tried to cut on him, but he’s kind of overgrown for that. He must not have been very good if they let me have him.”

Boggs, 31, of Stephenville, Texas, is a 5.5 header—and winner of the 2022 Windy Ryon Memorial Ladies Roping with Rylie Smith—so most of the horse’s time outside of the cutting pen has been in the heading.

“He was so broke, but he was very scared of ropes,” Boggs said. “He took everything so good. I don’t know if that’s just bred in him, but the better they’re broke, they take everything better. They don’t get excited. He was broke and he was a big stout horse.”

Giving the Riata Buckle A Go

Boggs didn’t know about the Riata Buckle until a few weeks ago. But when she saw it on the Next Gen app and realized she had a horse eligible, she decided against the amateur rodeo she was planning to enter and instead put his name down in Guthrie.

“I don’t stay on top of things like I should,” Boggs said, laughing. “But I’m glad I saw it when I did.”

The Riata Buckle continues Nov. 3-6 from the Lazy E with team roping, and will stream live on and
