The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) Snaffle Bit Futurity Open finals, held Oct. 4 in Reno, Nev., is a sight to behold for reined cow horse fans. It is widely regarded as the most prestigious event for an NRCHA horseman to win. This year, Corey Cushing wrapped up his second NRCHA Futurity Open title riding Good Time.
The One Time Pepto gelding stayed strong through all three events to secure the $100,000 win with a huge composite score of 660 (219 herd/219.5 rein/221.5 cow). Good Time (out of Dual Nurse x Dual Pep), owned by Lynne Wurzer, was tied for second in the herd work, tied for first in the rein work and second in the cow work.
Sitting second with a 651.5 (216 herd/218.5 rein/221.5 cow) were Shiney Nu Annie (Shining Spark x Annies Nu Lena x Nu Cash) and Chris Dawson. The mare earned an $80,000 paycheck for owner Wagonhound Land & Livestock.
