2009 NRCHA Hackamore Classic Begins Today

In only three days, the 2009 National Reined Cow Horse Association Hackamore Classic Champions will be decided. The NRCHA most traditional premier event, held April 24-26 at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, California, is already challenging because of the requirement that all horses must be shown in a hackamore, but it is made even more so because the winners of the event are decided in the one round of competition.

This year, the event is tough as ever, with the top 4- and 5-year-old cow horses competing for the large purse. Ed Robertson and That CD Rocks, recent winners of both the Open and Intermediate Open titles at the NRCHA Stakes in Nampa, Idaho, grace the draw sheet, as do the 2008 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Reserve Champions Jon Roeser and Shiney Lil Miss.

The Non Pro draw is equally tough, as the reigning Champions, Anne Reynolds and Very Smart Flo Jo, vie for back-to-back victories.

The NRCHA Hackamore Classic also features a full-slate of NRCHA approved classes, which will be held all three days of the competition. To keep up with the results, please visit http://www.nrcha.com. The National Reined Cow Horse Association, celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2009, is the governing body of cow horse competition, is responsible for promoting the sport, insuring high standards of competition and educating members and the public about the history and tradition of the cow horse. Through the support of a Corporate Partner family that includes John Deere, Adequan(r), Bob's Custom Saddles, Cinch, Inc., Classic Equine, Gist Silversmiths, MD Barns, Platinum Performance, Inc., Nutrena, Quarter Horse News & Performance Horse magazine, the Peppermill Hotel/Resort, Fort Dodge West Nile Innovator, Rios of Mercedes, Merial products ULCERGARD and EQUIOXX, and the Silver Legacy Hotel, the association works to keep the vaquero tradition alive in today's equine industry.
