Barbara Berg used to live in Reno, Nevada, and now, thanks to Wide World of Horses, she'll be returning for a visit when she catches all the excitement of the 2010 National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity.
"I am so excited," Barbara said. "I love cutting, reining and cow horse and when I used to live in Reno, I would go every year to watch. I can't wait to go back this year!"
Wide World of Horses, the most watched equine program on RFD-TV, awarded Barbara, who lives in Washington State and Texas, round-trip airfare for two plus two season tickets to the 40th Anniversary 2010 Snaffle Bit Futurity September 30-October 4 in Reno, Nevada. Also included in the grand prize package are hotel accommodations and two tickets to the NRCHA Hall of Fame Banquet. Barbara plans to take a friend with her on the trip.

"I just love watching Wide World of Horses," Barbara said. "I love that the show has so many horse events on it from cutting to reining to cow horse to roping."
The NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity has probably created more fans for reined cow horses than any other single show. The first Snaffle Bit Futurity was in 1970 at Cal-Expo in Sacramento and boasted 27 entries. In the following years, the Futurity has become a major spectator event with thousands of fans now making the trip each fall to the Reno Livestock Events Center in Nevada for 12 days of the world's finest cow horse action.
