Owner/rider Savannah Grace Ostner of Memphis, TN is the new NRHA 14-18 World Champion! She was also the North American Affiliate Reserve Champion her other horse, A Bueno Chic. Mr. Crometastic is the USEF Junior Reining Horse of the Year; Savannah is the USEF Western Performance Owner of the Year, AQHA Tennessee Justin Intermediate Rookie Champion, and AQHA Youth Reining High Point Winner.

Savannah is the USA Reining 14-18 Rider of the Year. Mr. Crometastic ranks number two in the USA Reining Horse Rankings with 87 points, just two less than number one ranked Who Whiz Who (89).

Savannah won the title at age 15, and she is a sophomore at St. Mary's Episcopal School in Memphis. She’s had the Palomino gelding she calls “Nanners” for about a year and a half and they’ve made a lot of shows together with successful results. You may have seen Savannah at the show with the Arkansas Reining Horse Association in Tunica, MS last November. She was first in Youth 14-18 on Friday, October 31 with Mr. Crometastic and first on Sunday, November 2 with A Bueno Chic.

“I thought it was pretty cool that these two Tennessee girls won their titles out of almost 700 kids,” said proud mom Megan Ostner.
