Brittany Pozzi has won two barrel racing world championships with plenty of assistance from Sixth Vision, a 13-year-old gelding
Now Kristen Williams is hoping for the same results. And Williams’ run on Stitch at the 2010 All-American Series Finals in Waco, Texas, might be a good indication of what lies ahead in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association.
Williams purchased Stitch from Pozzi in August, and it’s been a nice team since. The two worked together around the cloverleaf barrel pattern inside the Extraco Events Center six times, with the final run being their fastest. In all, Williams earned $15,297, with $7,000 coming in the championship round of the bracket-style competition.
Williams is married to Clayton Williams, a bull rider who, although a veteran, is making his first trip to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo this December. The son of stock contractor Terry Williams, Clayton made a name for himself in Oklahoma City in 2007 and 2008, when he won the Professional Bull Riders events both years and earned $740,000.
But Kristen Williams is going to parlay her relationship with Stitch into rodeoing full time. She’s going to take her shot at qualifying for the NFR in 2011, and she knows that having an exceptional horse is a great start.
