$50,000 Silver Spurs Equine Team Challenge Conditions
In the Silver Spurs Equine Team Challenge, exhibitors will run in a regular NRHA class with the highest scoring run winning the competition. As an added bonus, riders will compete in teams to ride for an additional $10,000 to be disbursed evenly among teammates.
Once all entries are received, team captains will be selected based on their earnings in 2016. Team captains will then pick their teams one by one. Each rider will ride against the opposing team in the order they were picked. The rider who receives the highest score in that round, will receive a point for their team. If, at any point in the competition, riders end up in a tie, one-half point will be given to both teams. Not only will this Team Challenge foster friendly competition among riders, but also comradery via this unique competition only seen at the NRHA Futurity.
Silver Spurs Equine is proud to be a corporate partner with NRHA and the sponsor for the Team Challenge.
