Four Facilities Apply to Host the 2017 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity

The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) has taken the next step toward selecting the host facility for the 2017 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, closing the request for proposal (RFP) and beginning the evaluation process, after receiving bids from four locations.

In December 2015, the NRCHA announced it was seeking a community partner to host the 2017 Snaffle Bit Futurity, the association’s largest premier event. More than a dozen facilities made initial contact after the public RFP announcement.

In the final reckoning, four facilities submitted a proposal by the March 1 deadline, detailing suitability and interest in hosting the Snaffle Bit Futurity. Those facilities are located in Denver, Colorado; Fort Worth, Texas; Reno, Nevada; and Scottsdale, Arizona. The NRCHA Board of Directors received the quartet of applications at its March 25 meeting in Las Vegas.

The NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity RFP outlined specific selection criteria, including: facility location and amenities; availability of incentive and sponsorship money; and reasonable access to cattle.

Over the next several months, the NRCHA board of directors will compile a detailed comparison of all four proposals, with the tentative goal of making a final decision and public announcement following its June meeting in Paso Robles, California.

“Our goal has always been to make the best choice for everyone involved – the competitors, owners, sponsors and spectators,” said NRCHA President Todd Bergen. “The board of directors is going forward with a detailed and careful process to ensure the host facility for the 2017 Snaffle Bit Futurity will provide a great experience.”
