The nation’s top equine triathletes converge in Fort Worth, Texas, each October for the chance at one of the horse industry’s most coveted titles—National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity® Champion. These 3-year-old cow horses compete in herd work, rein work and fence work. With a total annual payout in excess of $1 million, the Futurity Open Champion comes home $125,000 richer, and with an indelible place in reined cow horse history.
From humble beginnings in 1970, the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity® has flourished into one of the most prestigious and exciting events in the Western Performance industry. It’s been called “The Greatest Show on Dirt” and the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity is fun for exhibitors and spectators alike.
