2021 Distance Horse of the Year Congratulations to the 2021 Distance Horse of the Year, BANTAM Z, owned/ridden by Cynthia Mettes!
This seven year old gelding (MW MISTER Z x SERANATA+) competed in five different states with his owner/rider Cynthia. Cynthia and Bantam took home multiple top five and ten placings, while earning the NATRC National Championship title and winning the AHA Region 9 CTR Championship ride.
Cindy says, "I would like to thank Bantam for giving me an unexpected year full of fun and excitement. Finally I would like to thank my husband, Kim, for supporting me in every way with my extreme horse passion. Bantam’s future looks bright and I look forward to many more miles on the trail with him and seeing what lies around the next bend in the trail.”
