NRHA corporate sponsor, Cowboy Central, is recognizing NRHA exhibitors who participate during the 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, the exhibitor’s name is automatically entered into a drawing. At the end of the qualifying period, three names will be drawn from each of the 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 the level that they recognize not only our champions, but also the NRHA exhibitors across the board,” commented Dan Wall, NRHA Executive Director.
Cowboy Central’s partnership began shortly after the 2003 NRHA Futurity & Championship Show. McDonald and her staff hit the ground running as an NRHA corporate sponsor, setting their sights on the 2004 NRHA Derby as the first of several shows where their specially designed saddles will be awarded for championship titles, including the European Championship and the 2004 Cowboy Central Saddle Series. All told, Cowboy Central will award more than 60 saddles in 2004.
The Cowboy Central Exhibitor Rewards program-qualifying period is January 1 through September 6, 2004 for North American affiliate shows and January 1 through May 31, 2004 for European affiliate shows.
