The horse named Born Hot Feelin Good captured the first-place Intermediate title in senior hunter under saddle at the 2013 American Quarter Horse Association Open World Championship Show on Friday, November 22 in Oklahoma City. The first-place Intermediate horse is owned by Deanna Bailey of Sand Lake, Michigan, and was shown by Amber Hanson of Byron, Michigan.

Born Hot Feelin Good is a 2006 red roan gelding. Born Hot Feelin Good, sired by Born To Be Blazing and out of Good Graces, was bred by Kristin Rinkenberger of Morton, Illinois.

The Intermediate awards program is designed to recognize exhibitors who have never placed in the top 10 at an AQHA world show in the particular class in which they are competing. Intermediate exhibitor status is based only on an exhibitor’s lifetime, combined world show record, not on the number of points he/she has accumulated. Intermediate accomplishments will appear on the official records of the horse and exhibitor. Intermediate first-place winners in each class receive an 8-inch clear globe.
