OKLAHOMA CITY – Preliminary competition has kicked off in Oklahoma City for the National Reining Horse Association’s premier event, the NRHA Futurity & Adequan North American Affiliate Championships.

The event, set to run through Dec. 3 in the Jim Norick Coliseum at the Oklahoma County Fairgrounds, is expected to draw exhibitors from around the globe. According to a release, competitors vie for a piece of a purse exceeding $2 million, highlighted by a $350,000 check for the Level 4 Open Champion.

Under the lights of the coliseum, 3-year-old reining horses will be put to the test as they navigate through signature circles, spins and sliding stops. At the same time, top riders and horses of all ages from across North America will compete for major titles. Non-professional riders also will win big, with the Level 4 Non Pro title coming with a check for $75,000.

In addition to world-class competition, the NRHA Futurity will host numerous vendors showcasing Western tack, furniture, clothing, decor and more. Some of the best horses the industry has to offer, from prospects to producers, also will be shown and sold. Last year the high seller – a yearling mare named Deja Vue, commanded $170,000.

The first three days of the event will offer free admission.
