For the second consecutive year, Fallon's Tylie Norcutt emerged victorious at the Ft. Worth National Reined Cow Horse Association world finals, the biggest money event of the year. Once again, Tylie claimed the Robbie Schroeder Memorial Saddle in the Steer-Stopping event and earned the esteemed title of Youth World Greatest Horseman Reserve Champion. 

For those unfamiliar with the reined cow horse world, it is a Western riding competition that tests the horse and rider’s combined ability when working cattle in various events. Competitors are judged on accuracy, timing, and responsiveness. Generally, the pair endeavors to demonstrate advanced horsemanship skills while maneuvering together easily and gracefully. 

Tylie competed on 11-year-old reining cow horse Kenny, formally known as Soulas Hickory Star. 
In a previous interview with Tylie, she shared that Kenny became part of the Norcutt family when he was two. Kenny soon began his training with expert horseman Darrel Norcutt, otherwise known as Dad.
This was Tylie and Kenny’s third year competing together. According to Mom, Cari Norcutt, Kenny has finished in the top five four years running. “He has truly been a gift from heaven to us and our girls, and we are forever grateful,” said Cari.

Congratulations, Tylie. Fallon is so proud of you!

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
