WPRA, AQHA and NBHA World Champion, Martha Josey, has continued her legendary career on many horses, reflecting her keen training and horsemanship ability. Beginning in 1964 on her great gelding, Cebe Reed, this explosive pair won 7 horse trailers and 52 barrel races in a row. Cebe qualified Martha for her first NFR in l968 and again in l969.� Martha later teamed up with her immortal gelding, Sonny Bit O'Both, and this powerful combination went to the NFR 4 years in a row, from 1978 to 1981. In 1980, Sonny set an all time record of being the only horse in history to win the AQHA and WPRA World Championships in the same year and continues to hold this record today.
Inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 1985, Martha continued competing and winning on the Pro Tour Circuit, aboard a new partner, Jetonfer Pay, who she rode to the NFR, also in 1985. Swen Sir Bug, or "J. C.," qualified Martha for the NFR in 1987 and was the champion she chose to ride while representing the United States in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada.
