THE FULL STORY:    In 1984 at age 14, Charmayne James climbed aboard Scamper, her American Quarter Horse gelding, and won the title of World Champion Barrel Racer as well as the Rookie of the Year honors from the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. So what did she do next? Unbelievably, she and Scamper claimed the World Barrel Racing Championship for the next 10 straight years (1984 to 1993)! Born in 1977, Scamper’s registered name is Gills Bay Boy. When this “wild little bay” sent his first trainer to the hospital, Scamper was put up for sale. Charmayne’s father purchased him for $1,100, thinking that was too much to pay for a horse that had to be ridden for a half hour so he didn’t buck. In 1984, a veterinarian advised Charmayne that Scamper “just wouldn’t hold up” to barrel racing’s stresses - that same year the pair won their first championship - their first of ten in a row! In 1995, Scamper was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame (timed-event horse category) in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Besides his 10 World Championships, Scamper won 5 National Finals Rodeo (NFR) average titles and 10 Houston Rodeo Championships. He was named American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) "Horse of the Year" five times, and was the second horse to win the "Silver Spur Award". Scamper retired in 1997, and now grazes his days away at Charmayne’s ranch in Athens, Texas.
