Reined cow horse riders will be joining the party this year at The Run For A Million.
Officials say the 2020 show will host its first-ever reined cow horse invitational during its second-annual edition Aug. 19-22 in Las Vegas. The $100,000 cow horse event will be held in conjunction with the existing reining competitions at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa – a roster that includes the show’s $1 Million Invitational for reiners.
Amanda Brumley, show producer for The Run For A Million, said invitations will be sent to selected cow horse riders in the coming weeks. She said invitees for the inaugural cow horse invitational – which will be sponsored by DT Horses – will include ten Open riders with the top three-year average in earnings. A number of wild card riders outside that earnings bracket will be invited as well. She said the field, which has not yet been made public, will likely be limited to no more than 15 riders.
