Chrome Cash Goes Global

The flashiest reiners and their savvy owners will get another run for Chrome Cash at the National Reining Horse Association(NRHA) European Futurity, taking place May 26–29 at Bo Ranch just outside Paris, France, courtesy of American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and the NRHA.

Thanks to the incentive, APHA will pay out $10,000 (USD) in added prize money exclusive to registered Paint Horses in four classes:

  • $3,250 APHA Open Chrome Cash Incentive
  • $3,250 APHA Amateur Chrome Cash Incentive
  • $1,750 APHA Futurity Open Level 4 Chrome Cash Incentive
  • $1,750 APHA Futurity Non-Pro Level 4 Chrome Cash Incentive

No qualifying is required. All registered Paints—both Regular Registry and Solid Paint-Bred—are eligible as long as the owner and rider are APHA members. The entry fee is just €50, with 50 percent going to the purse.

The NRHA European Futurity entry deadline was May 2, but late Chrome Cash entries will be accepted in ancillary classes and for horses already entered in the Futurity.
