The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) returns to the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, Calif., June 17–22, during the NRCHA Derby. With a payout exceeding $359,000, the NRCHA Derby is known for top-notch cow horse competition, but it’s becoming famous for something else: Local celebrities and NRCHA corporate partners are getting a taste of cow horse action when they compete in the 2008 NRCHA Derby Celebrity/Sponsor Cow Horse Competition sponsored by Snaffle Bit Ranch, of Lodi, Calif.
One rider from each team will compete in each phase of the competition — herd work, rein work and cow work. The competition will be held Saturday, June 21 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Each member of the winning team receives a Gist Silversmith custom trophy buckle, but the Celebrity Cow Horse competition is actually a fundraiser for a local charity of the winner’s choice.
