  Ember Stewart and Lana Givens

Glen Rose, Texas cowgirl Ember Stewart and Jet A Beam, better known as “Reba”, qualified for the 1997 National Finals Rodeo in 14th position in the WPRA standings with earnings of  $36,164.20. Reba was purchased from Ed and Martha Wright in 1994 just before Martha won the Reserve Championship and the Limited Division title of the 1994 World Championship Barrel Futurity on the pretty red roan mare. Reba is sired by Jet of Honor and out of a Lady Bugs Moon mare.  

Due to an untimely accident in early November ’97, Reba sustained a serious wire cut to a front leg.  Ember was unable to compete on the mare in Las Vegas at the NFR.  Lucky for Ember, her mom, Lana Givens, owns one of the best horses on the WPRA rodeo trail. His name is Band Of Honor, better known as “Bandy”.  He was also purchased from Ed and Martha in February of 1994.  The 10 year old sorrel gelding is by Jet Of Honor and out of the good Tiny Guy mare, Tiny Silver Bell.  It should be noted that Lana and Bandy finished 24th in the 1997 WPRA year end standings.  
Lana agreed to load Bandy to Ember for the ’97 trip to Las Vegas and the rest is history.  During the 10 runs at the NFR, Ember and Bandy teamed up to win $36,486.41 and moved from 14th to 4th in the year-end standings of the WPRA.  They won two go-rounds, the 4th go and the 9th go and placed in 4 other go-rounds, finishing 5th in the average.  Ember and Bandy’s NFR’s winnings added to Ember and Reba’s winnings totaled $72,650.61.  

Ed and Martha are thrilled with the success and accomplishments of this mother-daughter duo and the horses they ride that carry the Slash W brand.  We are sure you will see and hear more about them in the future PRCA/WPRA events.
