Meet the Best of the Best in Ohio: Lisa Bowser

Lisa and Chaney winning the Congress Amateur Barrels in 2006

Lisa Bowser and Chaney have been hot hot hot for the last few years. With a Congress championship and reserve championship under their belts in 2006 and 2007, this team didn’t stop there. In 2011 they clocked the fastest time at the Midwest Match Race, bringing a win to team Ohio and an average win to themselves.They will run lucky #13 in the Best of the Best in Ohio Barrel Race on this Friday, and will undoubtedly bring in some dollars for charity in our calcutta! 

Special thanks to Chick’s Saddlery, Cowboy Militia, Greeley Hat Works, Rod’s Western Palace, and Rock & Roll Cowgirl for their sponsorships! 

Tell us about the horse you’ll be running in The Best of the Best in Ohio Barrel Race. (Name, bloodlines, style, age, owner, any other fun details.)

Horse’s name is Queens Chicdelite (Chaney) By Luckgay Chicdelite and Queens Payday. She was purchased as a 2 year old by Doug Chaney (hence, her name). She was trained by Kevin Niekamp. She is 15 years old and I have had the pleasure of running her since she was 4.

What is the biggest race this horse has won?

The biggest barrel race we have won was The All AMerican Quarter Horse Congress, Am. Barrels 2006 and Reserve 2007 in the same class. I have not ran there since due to personnal matters.

What is your biggest win as a barrel racer?

Lisa and Chaney winning the Midwest Matches in 2011

The most fun event I ran with her was the 2001 Midwest Matches, in Indiana, when she ran the fastest time and our Ohio Team won the Match event.

Have you ever run at the WB Ranch before? (If so, what did you think of the facility and the ground, and how did your horses work there?)

We’ve ran at WB. Excellent facility, great food, and I see friends and family from the area.

Tell us one little-known fact about you or your horse.

Chaney has helped me accomplish many goals and obtain numerous wins. She also about broke my wrist when she kicked me a year and a half ago on a freak accident.

This race is all about charity – What’s the biggest cause you believe in and why?

I like to support breast cancer awareness because it affects so many women. I also work in mental health and donate to this cause especially during holiday time when they are less fortunate.

Good luck to all the competitors. May this event bring, not only money, but awareness to Celebral Palsy.
