Buck Thompson Recognized as a 2019 MFTHBA Top 5 Trainer
Congratulations to Buck Thompson on being recognized as a 2019 MFTHBA Top Trainer. In 2019, Mr. Thompson had horses compete in the performance, model, and versatility arenas.
Here are just a few of the horses that Mr. Thompson trained and their accomplishments in 2019: the Open Amateur Senior Model Stallions and Geldings World Grand Champion, Southern Swagger, owned by Joe and Jennifer Stewart of Farmington, Arkansas; and the Spring Show & Futurity Youth Model Champion, Dirty Diana, owned by Karen and Jessie Hammer of Greenfield, Missouri.
The Trainer of the Year Award:
The Trainer of the Year award was designed to recognize the achievements of professional horsemen and women involved in the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed. The award is based on the performance of those horses the trainer works with in the model, versatility, and performance arenas at the two MFTHBA shows. This year 33 trainers earned points towards the award.
