2013: WPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Leader
The 2013 Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Right Leader is Rick Fraser's Paul the Speierman. This 12 year old Alberta bred gray gelding was acquired in the retirement sale of former world champion Buddy Bensmiller in 2011, and was immediately inserted into Rick's powerful 1 and 2 barrel outfits. A durable horse, as his 65 starts as a racehorse will attest, Spearman was the highest pointed chuckwagon horse in this years standings, helped power the Fraser outfit to final heat victories in Grande Prairie and Dawson Creek, and was a major force behind Rick's 2013 World Championship.
