NRHA Responds and Changes Non Pro Pre Futurity Conditions

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Earlier this week, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) spread good news about strong purse projections for aged shows at the inaugural NRHA Cowtown Classic set for August 23-27 in Fort Worth, Tex. Today, NRHA is ready to share even better news - the NRHA Executive Committee has responded to the suggestions of many Non Pros, both those entered and those not entered in the event.
The Executive Committee voted to approve an amendment to the Cowtown conditions making it possible for exhibitors in the Pre Futurity Non Pro division to show one or two handed in any legal bridle. Prior to the change, the conditions mandated exhibitors to show one handed in a bridle or two handed in a snaffle bit or hackamore.

Due to this change in conditions, the deadline will be extended with no late fees until two days prior to the competition, and the draw will be posted at the show to ensure all entries make it into the regular draw. These changes only effect the Pre Futurity Non Pro division. All other show conditions, late fees, etc. will remain.

“From the beginning, the Cowtown Classic was created for the membership. The show offers a tremendous amount of added money and has reasonable entry fees. We’ve worked to do everything possible to make it enjoyable, fun and affordable for everyone. We received some great feedback from many of our Non Pros, and we’re happy to make this change to accommodate them,” said Dan Wall, NRHA Executive Director.
