Penny Knight and Drag N Fly Ranch to Sponsor NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity

The National Reined Cow Horse Association announced in mid-January that Penny Knight and Drag N Fly Ranch, of Terrebonne, Oregon, will sponsor a special program on the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity on RFD-TV. The program - featuring the association’s premier event for 3-year-old horses, will appear on Wide World of Horses, and the show is tentatively set for November 3.

NRCHA President, Lyn Anderson, was excited about the opportunity to showcase the Futurity to the large RFD-TV audience. “Thanks to the sponsorship from Penny Knight and Drag N Fly Ranch a whole new section of horse lovers can see this exciting event for the first time. Once the viewers see the talent of these 3-year-old horses and the competitiveness of the futurity I believe we will see many more Reined Cow Horse enthusiasts.”

Drag N Fly owners Norm and Kim Pierce are enthusiastic supporters of the National Reined Cow Horse Association and its events, also sponsoring the Penny Knight and Drag N Fly Ranch Bridle Spectacular at the 2008 NRCHA Stakes. Kim noted, “We’re very excited about being involved with the NRCHA, and see this as a way to express our commitment to great horses and to the spirit of competition.”

Drag N Fly Ranch, located in beautiful Central Oregon, is home to a group of exceptional reined cow horse performers and prospects. Under the guidance of trainer Wes Chappell, Drag N Fly’s Norm and Kim, along with Kim’s sister, Penny Knight, have assembled a dynamic stallion roster that includes Drag And Fly, Im A Tuff Bueno, Smart Santana, Reed N Reminic and Starlighting. According to Chappell, the horses were carefully chosen to reflect Drag N Fly’s desire to raise sound, trainable, beautiful performers with world-class pedigrees.

Chappell said, "It's about developing the all-around cow horse, one that can do it all. A horse is broke enough that can do the cutting, rein work, go down the fence, one that can rope, that's what we do and that is the all-around."

Drag N Fly Ranch has also assembled a brilliant broodmare band, with emphasis on performing mares. Recent additions include two NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Reserve Champions: Tangys Classy Lady (x Tangys Classy Peppy) and Gunnalena (x Playgun).

In addition to their sponsorship of reined cow horse and reining events, the Pierces are both enthusiastic reining competitors, and Norm was elected in January, 2008 to the Oregon Quarter Horse Association Board of Directors.

Wide World of Horses airs each Monday night at 9:30 CST on RFD-TV - so it’s just as close as your Dish or Direct TV satellite! RFD-TV (DIRECT TV 379 and DISH NETWORK 231 or 9409). Each weekly program is run three times so the program also runs Mondays at 11:30 am CST and Sunday mornings at 6:30 am CST.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association, 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.
