Charmayne James’ Famous Barrel Horse Scamper

Ms. James is most famous for winning her first 10, and consecutive, World Championships on her bay horse Gills Bay Boy (1977-2012), better known as Scamper. Originally purchased by James’ father from a cowboy working in his feedlot, he suggested Charmayne give the horse a try as her next barrel horse. The two formed a partnership that took them to the pinnacle of barrel racing success year after year.

In his lifetime Scamper earned many accolades, titles, and awards, including:

  • 10 Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) Barrel Racing world titles (1984-1993)
  • 5 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) “Horse Of The Year” titles (1989-1993)
  • 7 Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) “Horse With the Most Heart” titles (1986, 1988–93)
  • He was awarded the AQHA Silver Spur Award in 1992
  • He was inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1996

According to Ms. James, Scamper was in good health until he passed away at the age of 35 on July 4, 2012. He remains one of the most iconic horses ever to compete in competition of any kind. His loving owner, partner, caretaker, and companion, Charmayne James, said at the time of his passing:

“What a gift he was. It’s sad that he is gone but what life he had. It’s something to be celebrated.”
