Heritage Futurity Introduces “Ride Our Money!”
The Great Southwest Equestrian Center’s Second Annual Heritage Futurity aims to be a must-attend event for the reining world’s fall futurity lineup. The popular new reining show, which debuted in 2013, will take place October 2-5, 2014.
The event features $60,000 in added money and this year, the Great Southwest Equestrian Center is inviting attendees to “Ride Our Money!” This welcome feature will consider entries complete once a method of payment has been received along with the required entry forms and documentation for horse/rider/owner. But, no payments will be deposited or processed until October, 6, 2014, the Monday after the show!
According to Amy Uniss, Equine Manager of the Great Southwest Equestrian Center, “We are also offering a ‘Ride Our Money’ drawing. All horses entered will be automatically eligible for this drawing. The lucky winner will be drawn on Saturday during the Open Futurity and the Heritage Futurity will pay entry fees, stall fees, shavings, paid warm-ups and RV expenses related to that horse.”
In another important announcement, Uniss also outlined more information. She added, “Finally, all prize money checks will be mailed no later than October 17, 2014.”
Sean Brown, General Manager of the Great Southwest Equestrian Center, was excited about the “Ride Our Money” concept. “We genuinely appreciate our exhibitors and their support of our show. This program – and the commitment for quick distribution of prize money – is a small way we can give back to them.”
This year’s Heritage Futurity and Show features a double slate of National Reining Horse Association ancillary classes, as well as American Quarter Horse Association-approved classes.
The Great Southwest Equestrian Center is an 80 acre multipurpose venue that has served the greater Houston community for over two decades and its easy accessibility and proximity to major highways have made it a favorite with reiners. In recent years, new ownership has focused on growth and the recently-completed Tellepsen Arena has given the opportunity to host events with competition taking place in three indoor facilities simultaneously.
