This overnight rest before the obstacle competition makes the event quite different from others because the horses get a full day's rest before going into the obstacle course.

She finally got her due, winning the Open Bridle class at the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s Celebration of Champions in San Angelo, Texas, on February 4.
