Texas Orthopedics’ very own Dr. Barbara Bergin received Top Ten honors in three events at this year’s National Reining Horse Association’s2013 Futurity and North American Affiliate Championship in Oklahoma City.Riding Starbucks for Chex (barn name Sampson for his long mane), Dr. Bergin won two 3rd places and one 7thplace.
This is the first time Dr. Bergin has advanced to this level.She qualified three times in the past, but her horse, Señor, went ‘lame’ every year. (For those not familiar with the term ‘lame’ it means there is either an injury or medical condition that causes a horse to be unsound).Dr. Bergin retired Señor last year. T
his was her first year competing with Sampson. They start their 2014 season at the end of January.
