Travagliato, July 26 — Provided by Simona Diale — The European Reined Cow Horse Association (ERCHA) is proud to announce that the ERCHA/NRCHA Pre Futurity, a competition open to 3-, and 4-year-old horses shown in a snaffle bit or hackamore, is celebrating its eighteenth edition at the Palacittá facility located in Travagliato, Italy.

The very first edition was held at Arcese Quarter Horses, Italy, thanks to the support and passion for the working cow horses of Leonardo [Arcese], one of the founders of the ERCHA along with now President Markus Schopfer. This year, over 50 horses are expected to take part in the much-awaited for event which offers the $2,500-added Open, $200-added Limited Open, $500-added Non Pro and $100-added Intermediate Non Pro divisions. The Jackpot Novice Amateur will also take place class in class with the Non Pro Pre Futurity, a category that showcases the herd work, reined work and boxing.
 
Last year’s Open and Non Pro Pre Futurity Champions — Markus Schopfer and Vaclav Vacik respectively — will be back this year to defend their titles!
 
Adding more fun and excitement to the two-day event will be the ERCHA/NRCHA approved $600-added Open, $100-added Limited Open Bridle, $300-added Open Two Rein, $300-added Open Hackamore, $250-added Non Pro Bridle, and $100-Non Pro Two Rein.
 
The European Reined Cow Horse Association’s goal was that of expanding across Europe and one of the most successful programs so far has been the Regional Championship which comprises France, Italy, Sweden, and Central Eastern. As the show season moves along, regional finalists will be determined and the champions will be crowned during the ERCHA/NRHA Autumn Show.
