An NCHA earner of over $351,063 and a recipient of the NCHA Silver Award, Woody Be Tuff’s competitive career is marked by significant achievements, including semi-finalist positions in the 2004 NCHA Open and Non-Pro Futurities and multiple championship titles in subsequent years.

“Woody’s” genetic influence extends beyond his own performance and proves to be the ultimate outcross. Woody Be Tuff’s offspring, who have earnings surpassing $10.99 million, excel across a spectrum of disciplines, including team roping, cutting, cow horse, reining and barrel racing. His progeny include 2023 standouts like cutter turned rope horse, Kittyswood, and NRCHA Open Futurity Champion, Zak 34.
