The 2022 Austrian Reining Horse Futurity (ARHA) and NRHA Show is scheduled for August 17 to 20, 2022 in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The traditional show, which has been listed in the top 25 reining events in the world for the past 16 years  [based on prize money], offers excellent show conditions and a very special atmosphere, as well as a considerable purse and awards.

A highlight for the 2022 6666 National Reining Horse Association Derby presented by Markel will be the $20,000 Invitational Freestyle. Sponsored by the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau, the popular event will take place on Thursday, June 23, at 6 p.m.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) welcomes NRCHA professional, Sarah Dawson of Perrin, Texas, into the prestigious NRCHA Million Dollar Rider Club.
Dawson crossed the million-dollar mark following her win at the 2022 Tres Osos Cow Horse Derby in Fort Worth, Texas, aboard Selvarey. She is one of the youngest to achieve this milestone. Her Million Dollar Rider banner was revealed during the 2022 Kalpowar Quarter Horses Celebration of Champions when she was named the Tres Osos Cow Horse Derby Open Champion.

Less than four years after becoming a National Reining Horse Association Million Dollar Sire, Spooks Gotta Whiz achieved Four Million Dollar Sire status.

NCHA announces added money to the 2022 World Championship Futurity Purse
FORT WORTH – The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) is thrilled to announce the addition of $750,000 in added money to the upcoming 2022 NCHA Metallic Cat World Championship Futurity payout. 

Friday, March 4, 2022—The 2022 NRHA European Futurity, originally slated to be held in Wels, Austria, changed location following the premature passing of organizer Otto Ziehfreund. Owners Grégory and Claire Morat of BO Ranch located in La Chapelle-la-Reine, France, in the heart of France’s horse country, graciously offered their beautiful facility as host to this year’s edition on May 23-29.

COLUMBUS, OH – Cutting has been an integral part of the All American Quarter Horse Congress since its inception in 1967. In the beginning, the Congress began as a long weekend show and has grown to span over four weekends in the fall. Since the demands of producing a quality cutting requires so much more time and space than other quarter horse classes, it was decided this year to move it to a nearby location where space and time were not an issue. This move will be more user friendly to the cutters and will allow the cutting to grow at its own pace in the future.

The 2022 Cinch Timed Event Championship is set to take center stage March 10-12 at the world-famous Lazy E Arena. As this year’s Timed Event Titans prepare for battle—five runs in five events, heading, heeling, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and steer roping, in the hallowed red-dirt ground of that massive 160’ by 440’ arena—it’s the perfect time to take true, hard-core cowboy fans inside the belly of the beast that is the Ironman of Pro Rodeo. Oh, and how about announcing the fact that the Jr Ironman champ’s check just doubled while we’re at it?

In recent years, the planet has been in a state of upheaval and change. COVID-19 had a staggering impact. Some marginal businesses thrived and grew. Other long successful companies couldn’t survive and people lost jobs as well as lifelong enterprises.
For the equine industry, facing a pandemic was especially challenging. In early 2020, the National Reining Horse Association Board and Executive Committee scrambled along with the rest of the horse world to make correct decisions – to plan, predict, and survive. Now, with two years of history, the state of the reining industry shows very positive statistics according to the data released during the NRHA Winter Meetings, held Feb. 13-16 in Denton, Texas.
