The 2-year-old steer weighed in at almost 1,400 pounds.

Horn, 13, said steer-showing runs in the family.

“Ever since I was born, my dad and mom both did this when they were little, so I was raised around it but I started showing steers in third grade,” said Horn. “He (Bently) has a great personality and always so loving and kind towards people.  Even if we’re having a bad day, he’s always still so kind.”

Horn competed against young people from all but one Texas country for the top prize.

Last year’s grand champion sold for $200,000.

Horn said she plans to use her winnings for college.  She hopes to go to Texas A&M.
