Martin Muehlstaetter Wins Open and Intermediate Open NRBC Championship on Blue Collar Tag
23 May 2014
The largest National Reining Breeders Classic Open in history culminated on a Saturday night with the Open finals. While the field boasted many former Champions and multiple million dollar riders, new names finished at the top.
Martin Muehlstaetter wasn’t planning to show Blue Collar Tag at the NRBC; his owner, former Non Pro Champion Shaunda Rai Ruckman would be at the reins.
However, a bobble in the Non Pro prelims kept Ruckman and the 6-year-old gelding out of the finals. “Shaunda asked if I wanted to show him, and I said ‘Hell yeah!’” Muehlstaetter said.
