Four facilities apply to host the 2017 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity
The National Reined Cow Horse Association has taken the next step toward selecting the host facility for the 2017 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, closing the request for proposal (RFP) and beginning the evaluation process, after receiving bids from four locations.
In December 2015, the NRCHA announced it was seeking a community partner to host the 2017 Snaffle Bit Futurity, the association's largest Premier Event. More than a dozen facilities made initial contact after the public RFP announcement.
In the final reckoning, four facilities submitted a proposal by the March 1 deadline, detailing suitability and interest in hosting the Snaffle Bit Futurity. Those facilities are located in Denver, Colorado; Fort Worth, Texas; Reno, Nevada; and Scottsdale, Arizona. The NRCHA Board of Directors received the quartet of applications at its March 25 meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
