NRCHA Announces that the Hackamore Classic will move to Tulsa, Oklahoma

The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) announces that the Hackamore Classic will move to Tulsa, Oklahoma July 24-30, 2023.

This event was previously held in conjunction with the Snaffle Bit Futurity® in Fort Worth, Texas. The move is largely due to the growth that the NRCHA is seeing across the board with entries and the desire to keep premier event schedules optimal for competitors and the equine athletes alike.

“The Hackamore Classic is a historical event for the NRCHA. We are pleased with the growth we have seen over the past few years while hosting the Hackamore Classic at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity® and we are ready for this event to stand on its own. Tulsa Expo Square is a top-notch facility that will be a great home to one of our premier events. We look forward to the partnership with Tulsa and are excited for the 2023 show!”

The Hackamore Classic is designed to showcase the traditional cow horse evolution. The event provides hackamore horses, which are 4- and 5-year-olds, the opportunity to compete in the three-event derby which includes the herd/rein/cow work.

In addition to the Hackamore Classic, this event will also host the third and final qualifier for The Run For A Million, the inaugural 4-event World’s Greatest Non Pro, along with a full slate of horse show classes.

More information regarding the event including schedule, host hotels and entry deadlines will be forthcoming. For more information on upcoming events and the latest news visit

About the NRCHA
The National Reined Cow Horse Association was formed in 1949 (as the California Reined Cow Horse Association), with the goal of preserving and educating the public about the rich history of traditional California-style, vaquero horsemanship. The NRCHA works to promote highly trained working cow horses in part by guaranteeing the highest level of competition at its premier events like the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity®, as well as through its support of numerous affiliate groups across the United States and abroad. These groups serve as the association’s backbone, holding many NRCHA-sanctioned competitions and events each year that welcome riders of all skill levels.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association is headquartered in Pilot Point, Texas. For information regarding membership resources, event schedules, the NRCHA Hall of Fame and more visit
