Reserve World Champions
The MHIB, a program within the Maryland Department of Agriculture, presents the Touch of Class Award every month to Maryland horses and people who have achieved national and international recognition. In August, Bramble and his roan Quarter Horse gelding, Pure Blue Boon, won the American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship in tie-down roping in Oklahoma City. Boon accompanied Spencer to Rosecroft to accept the award. Spencer and his other mount, a buckskin gelding named W R Lynxalena, were the Reserve World Champions.
Even though Spencer specializes in rodeo events, his family has long been active as owner/trainers in harness racing. The Bramble family has operated Quail Covey Farm in Queen Anne for generations; however, Spencer and his family travel the rodeo circuit extensively during the year with their son and his horses.
“Spencer and his family have been involved in owning and training horses, as well as in other farming activities, for generations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” said MHIB Chairman Jim Steele. “They are a testament to the rich tradition of how superior horsemanship and agriculture are linked together in our state.”
So far, more than 50 Maryland horses and people have been honored with a Touch of Class Award for winning national/international titles in 21 different equine disciplines.
