Troutman twins take titles in paint horse competition

Paint Horse youth competitors Kali and Sami Cram, of Troutman, each captured a title recently at the 2009 Summer World Championship Paint Horse Show. The show, held in Fort Worth, Texas, June 24 through July 4, is one of the American Paint Horse Association’s premier events.
Kali claimed the World Championship in Jumping 18 & Under showing Ima Lotta Leaguer, a 10-year-old gelding owned by his rider. Sami captured the Reserve World Championship in the same class aboard her 9-year-old mare, Quincy Dodger Sue.
In jumping, horses are judged on their ability to negotiate at least four obstacles with a minimum of eight jumps. Youth are classified as competitors aged 18 and under who are required to show a self- or family-owned horse.
The World Championship Paint Horse Shows features the finest gathering of Paint Horses from around the globe. APHA hosts two annual World Shows to showcase the talents of American Paint Horses and their owners. This year’s Summer World Show, held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth’s cultural district, consisted of 690 talented horses and nearly 1,900 entries. Exhibitors competed for prizes and cash payouts totaling $300,000.
