Twelve-year-old Katherine Queen of Allendale, South Carolina, marked 220 to win the Faith Mountain Ranch NYCHA Junior Scholarship Cutting Thursday at the NCHA Summer Spectacular presented by Great American Insurance.

She rode Princess And The Pea, a 5-year-old mare owned by her parents and bred by Carroll’s Cutting by Halreycious out of A Purrfect Cat. Princess And The Pea has earned more than $46,000.

Catarose is a 10-year-old mare bred by Mahler and Meredith by High Brow Cat out of Rosies Playboy Lena, and owned by Keith Waid of Gardendale, Alabama. Jaycee was an Amateur finalist with Catarose in the 2012 NCHA Classic Challenge.

In third place with a 218 on Belles N Bullets, Cassie Cerny was making her first Scholarship Cutting finals. She is a fourth generation cutter, and is the great granddaughter of seven-time NCHA President, the late Jim Reno.
