Don’t Miss the Fall Futurities
by Sam Etsell
As the show season comes to a close, most riders are hanging up their chaps for the winter. But there’s one set of events that peaks this time of year—futurities. Futurities are events aimed at three-year-old horses. Whether you are looking to take your cutter to Fort Worth for the NCHA Futurity, or gearing up your reiner for Oklahoma City, these fun events offer something for everyone. The NRHA Futurity is held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, November 22- December 1. The futurity itself offers four levels of open competition as well as four for non-pro and youth riders. The show also showcases aged horses with its Open Shootout. This event offers $100,000 in added money. The futurity also offers an array of ancillary classes as well as the Adequan NAAC classes. This offers an opportunity for even the greenest of competitors to show. If those stuck at home, the NRHA offers a live webcast and live score feed of the event. This allows owners, members and reining connoisseurs the opportunity to watch from home. No matter the season, the WRHA is always grateful for the support of all sponsors. We would like to thank our Diamond Sponsors: Woodley Ranch, Timberland Homes, Maria Danielli, and Sky River Equestrian Center. We would also like to thank our Platinum Sponsors: Horse Vidz Productions, Eve Willett Agency Insurance, and Seaview Automobiles. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge our Gold Sponsors: Bariatric Advantage, Coastal Community Bank, and Stancik Quarter Horses.
