Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Kaylee Rampey, of Edmond, captured the world championship title and the 13-and-under first-place title in performance halter geldings at the 2013 Built Ford Tough American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship Show Friday inside State Fair Arena.

Rampey showed her American Quarter Horse One Hot Amigo. The 2002 sorrel gelding, sired by Zippo Hot Pine and out of Amiga Leaguer, was bred by Gorman and Alice Barger of Weber City, Va.

In the performance halter geldings, 53 entries competed for world champion honors. World champions received a prize package that included a custom-designed gold trophy, a Montana Silversmiths buckle, a specially designed logoed jacket, an embroidered blanket, a world champion patch, a neck wreath and a gold medallion.

AQHA recognizes the top three 13-and-under competitors in every class at the Ford Youth World. The achievement appears on the official records of the horse and exhibitor.

The Ford Youth World is the pinnacle event for American Quarter Horse exhibitors ages 18 and younger around the world, who must qualify for the event by earning a predetermined number of points to compete in each of the classes representing halter, English and western disciplines. More than 2,300 entries from the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Venezuela are competing for 35 world championships at this year’s event, Aug. 2-10 in Oklahoma City.
