Cowboy Central Rewards NRHA Exhibitors
NRHA corporate sponsor, Cowboy Central, is recognizing NRHA exhibitors who participate during 2004 show season by offering chances for prizes just for showing in affiliate ancillary classes.
Each time an NRHA member shows in an ancillary class at an affiliate show, exhibitor’s name is automatically entered into a drawing. At end of qualifying period, three names will be drawn from each of seven regions. The first name drawn will win a custom-made Cowboy Central Saddle valued at more than $3,500. The second and third names drawn will receive tack packages valued at more than $500 and $300, respectively.
"We are proud and excited that Cowboy Central takes their commitment to our membership and organization to level that they recognize not only our champions, but also NRHA exhibitors across board," commented Dan Wall, NRHA Executive Director.
Cowboy Central’s partnership began shortly after 2003 NRHA Futurity & Championship Show. McDonald and her staff hit ground running as an NRHA corporate sponsor, setting their sights on 2004 NRHA Derby as first of several shows where their specially designed saddles will be awarded for championship titles, including European Championship and 2004 Cowboy Central Saddle Series. All told, Cowboy Central will award more than 60 saddles in 2004.
