2008 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity

2008 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sept 21-Oct 5, 2008

The NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity celebrates its 39th anniversary this year, but the history of the unique working horse the futurity was created for, extends back hundreds of years.

The first contest, known then as the Snaffle Bit Futurity, was held in 1970 at the Cal Expo fairgrounds in Sacramento; 27 horses competed. Since then, the futurity has grown into a world championship event offering hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, and attracting contestants and spectators from around the globe.

The contest is open to 3-year-old horses of any breed. To test the young horses' cow working abilities, the futurity consists of three events: herd work, rein work, and work with a single steer "down the fence," typically called cow work.
