following the demonstration.
General Admission tickets will be $20. With the purchase of any ticket,
spectators will be granted entrance into the NRHA Futurity Open Finals later
that day at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the Coliseum.

and the thrill of competing. Breeding, raising, training and competing on
reiners has been a longtime passion of mine," he explains. "When I was
contacted by the NRHA to share my knowledge of starting colts, I was honored and
happy to help a sport that has meant a lot to me throughout my career with
