The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) CINCH Non Pro Futurity kicked off Sunday, November 27, with fierce competition from the more than 100 riders in the first section of the first go. In the end, Jack Medows of Cuba, Missouri, led the group with a score of 221.5.
Riding Fire N Rein, a mare sired by NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire and 2022 Hall of Fame inductee Spooks Gotta Whiz and out of Chicsdreamofdiamonds, Medows cruised moved through the NRHA Pattern 8. The two are no strangers to success, finishing as Reserve Champions in the All American Quarter Horse Congress L4 Non Pro Futurity. The mare was nominated and is owned by Amy Medows.
Medows and Fire N Rein also lead the American Paint Horse Association’s Chrome Cash incentive, which will be paid out following the preliminary round.
