NEO Repeats as Champion at AQHA World Show

Miami, Okla. – Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020 ­– The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) Horse Judging Team finished their season by repeating as Champion team at the 2020 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Show Intercollegiate Horse Judging Contest. The contest was held in November in conjunction with the AQHA World Show in Oklahoma City. In addition to the championship finish, NEO also fielded a second team, which was named Reserve Champion, improving on last year’s third-high team finish.

NEO competed against other two-year colleges and along with claiming two of the top three spots, also had over 30 top-ten individual finishes, with Jewel Bibelheimer and Hannah Cain finishing Champion and Reserve Champion Individual overall and the entire team of 9 placing in the top-ten overall.

Bibelheimer, a sophomore Agriculture Education major from Wagoner, Okla., earned high individual after finishing first in every category. She was joined on the podium by Cain, a sophomore Pre-Vet major from Claremore, Okla., who finished top-three in every category.

“It was a great day for these ladies,” said Head Coach Kevin Pool. “They had worked hard all year and had a tremendous amount of potential to be great. We knew that we had a group that could go 1st and 2nd and they never wavered. I am so proud of their attitude in dealing with the issues surrounding COVID-19. The success that they achieved came only from their hard work and perseverance.”
