A rare Downunder Horsemanship treat comes to Reno, Nevada next month. Clinton Anderson will present a three-hour colt starting demonstration at the National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) Snaffle Bit Futurity Friday, Sept. 28 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Reno Livestock Events Center outdoor arena. The demo is free with the price of a $15.00 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity daily admission ticket.
Downunder Horsemanship recently joined the NRCHA Corporate Partner family, a natural relationship given Clinton’s enthusiasm for the thrilling sport of reined cow horse.
"I’ve always loved the challenge of training a horse and the thrill of competing. When I discovered reined cow horse competitions several years ago, I knew I had found a new horsemanship passion. That’s why I’m excited to partner with the NRCHA to help spread the word on this great discipline and get more horsemen involved," he said.
The Snaffle Bit Futurity tests the cow sense and athleticism of three-year-old horses who compete in three grueling events: herd work, rein work and the thrilling fence work. The coveted Open Championship comes with a $100,000 paycheck! View the promotional video and visit www.NRCHA.com for details on the exciting sport of reined cow horse.
Following Clinton’s colt-starting demonstration, spectators can shop the giant Best of the West trade show and cheer for the championship contenders in the Non-Pro Snaffle Bit Futurity Finals. The Friday night action also includes the Celebrity Fence Work, featuring Nashville recording artist Trent Willman; Tom McMillan, star of the "Tom’s Wildlife" show on GAC; and western ballad singer Juni Fisher.
