The National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity® is one of the largest and most distinguished events for 3-year-old horses in the Western performance horse industry. This year marks the 51st annual NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. Not only is the Futurity returning to Fort Worth, Texas, for the fourth year in a row, it will also boast some of the industry’s largest payouts; expected to exceed $1.3 million. The Open Futurity Champion will receive a paycheck of $125,000. Join us for all action at the historic Will Rogers Memorial Center October 10 – 24, 2020.
Tickets for the 2020 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity®, presented by Metallic Cat, will go on sale Wednesday, September 23. A link to purchase tickets will be published at www.NRCHA.com. All days of admission are FREE with the exception of the Open Futurity Finals held in the iconic Coliseum the afternoon of Saturday, October 24.
Social Distance Seating will be in place – 50 percent capacity. Four seats will be available for purchase, then four seats not available, then four seats available for purchase, etc. Social distance seating will apply to sponsor and exhibitor seating sections as well. We are very excited to be able to sell tickets to one of the most thrilling nights in the equine industry. We do ask that everyone sit in the seats they reserved, do not crowd behind the box seats and be respectful of other people’s personal space. Masks will be required to be worn unless you are horseback.
Snaffle Bit Futurity entries receive two exhibitor seating section tickets. Horse show and Hackamore Classic entries receive one exhibitor seating section ticket. Each horse entered in the show receives a saddle pad number with a code. This code is used to claim your free web image, compliments of Primo Morales Photography. This code is also used to claim your exhibitor seating section ticket(s). The exhibitor seating section will be opened Wednesday, October 21st to claim your seat. We want everyone to have their codes before the section is opened. Do not lose your codes.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these changing times. We look forward to seeing you in Fort Worth, Texas.
