SLIDING IN THE MONEY – ONE MILLION PLUS SINCE

2005

Enthusiasm, Fun and Money Dominate Arabian/ Half-Arabian Scottsdale Reining Futurity Finals by Sue Adams

wonder this show is heralded by reiners nation-wide as one of their favorite competitions of the year. The ARHA was founded in 1998 to promote the natural athletic abilities and versatility of Arabian and Half-Arabian horses. Through the efforts of amateur competitor Robb Walther of Sherwood, Oregon, one of the founders of the ARHA, the group became affiliated with the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) in its infancy. The NHRA’s highly acclaimed judging format proved a solid platform for growth.

Spend a little time around the reining arena at any horse show and you observe a different atmosphere from elsewhere on the grounds. Arabian reining has an infectious spirit of enthusiasm and friendly camaraderie. The entire crowd breaks into a roar of approval for an amazing slide. Even more interesting, some of those cheering are probably even in competition against the horse and rider for whom they applaud.

In 2005 three gentlemen, Dick Ames, of Cedar Ridge Arabians, Tom Redmond of Wolf Springs Ranch and Joe Betten, stepped up with seed money to launch the ARHA’s Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity. Regarded as the “founding fathers” of the Futurity, much of the accelerated success of the ARHA traces to the vision of these men. They believe horse shows should be fun—with some financial incentives added to enhance that fun. They continue to support new and innovative promotional ideas. The idea for the SmartPax Celebrity Slide, on Monday, February 18, 2013, originated with Joe Betten. “Reining people allow other people, and not necessarily people who ride reining horses, but simply people who ride well, to get on our horses and give it a try,” comments Betten. “This fact gives

This is competition that even the completely uneducated spectator can understand and enjoy. Each competitor in a class rides the same pattern, with every horse and rider judged one ride at a time. Perhaps, because of this, competitors have a greater sense of control in their own performances and are better able to appreciate a “good go” from a peer. The slides and spins, although only two elements of the required riding pattern for each competitor, are visual demonstrations of skill and training to which the entire audience instantly connects with verbal enthusiasm. Reining is currently the fastest growing discipline in the Arabian show scene and with good reason. According to the Arabian Reining Horse Association (ARHA) the Scottsdale Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity Finals total payout between 2005 to 2012 is an impressive $1,081,468.32. Little

us opportunities to do unusual promotions and get people excited about our sport.” Launched in 2010, this Celebrity Slide event couples about a half dozen willing participants from other show disciplines who have good basic riding skills, assigns them to a reining trainer for a few sessions of intense training and pits them against each other in competition. First, however, the action heats up by auctioning each rider-trainer team in a Calcutta with 65% of the auction total awarded to the buyer of the winning team and the balance donated to ARHA. It’s great fun, friendly competition, a great marketing demonstration, and a fun evening even for those new to reining. A review of Futurity Finals payout amounts reveals the stiff competition in reining where the five Top Ten Half-Arabian money earners all claim $40,000 plus. Half-Arabian TR Texas T, for owner Dick Ames and trained by Brian Welman, ranks number one at $49,200. On the Purebred side, the same owner/trainer duo claims top honor with Fyre In The Skye at $45,000, and TA Mozart for owner Kimberly Tillman and trainer John O’Hara are 2nd with earnings of $36,000. The Top Ten purebred division winning owner statistics show Richard Ames in the lead with six winners totaling $99,831. Second position is shared by five owners at two winners each, Bazy Tankersley, Buckshot Farms, Kimberly Tillman, Sharon Davis and Timothy Anderson. Top Ten Half-Arabian winning owner honors go to Wolf Spring Ranches, Inc. with six winners. Buckshot Farms takes second place with five winners, third place Richard Ames claims four winners, with Joe Betten and Timothy Anderson recording three each. The fifth spot, with two winners each, is held by six owners, Eleanor Hamilton, Heath Herndon, Jensen Arabians, Inc., KBG Texas Marketing, Kevin Rosenbaum and Kit Hall. Among the winning owners is long-time breeder, Eleanor Hamilton, of Eleanor’s Arabian Farm in Rogers, MN. In addition, Eleanor is ARHA president, and she observes, “I’m getting many more calls this season from people looking for good reining bloodstock. People understand that breeding specifically for reining type requires the right foundation mares.” Her stallion, Hesa Zee is the sire of this year’s Grand Prize ARHA Reining Futurity Raffle horse, EAF American Honey—who just might be yours with the purchase of a $10 raffle ticket at the show.

“We are very pleased that our show entries in most divisions are on par with last year and up somewhat in purebred classes,” continues Hamilton. “Non-pro entries are also up for this show, meaning we have more and more riders interested in reining, exactly what we want to see.” Phyllis LaMalfa, executive director of the ARHA, points to sponsor support as further evidence of the success of the Futurity Finals and Classic Show. “Wells Fargo Advisors

Reining HistoRy Lesson Reining evolved from working ranch horse skills, into a standard of performance required to be the best. Sixty-two years ago the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) officially recognized reining as a sport, as did the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) with acceptance in its western division and certain breed divisions. Seventeen years later, in 1966, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) was founded in the United States. In 2000 the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) accepted reining as a recognized discipline. International reining competitions, including the world Equestrian Games, are regulated by the FEI in concert with NRHA. NRHA enjoys global membership and the NRHA Judging System sets the standards for combining technical maneuvers with style and appearance measured against their degree of difficulty. This Judging System has been used by numerous adapted disciplines.

Judging Reining CLasses A five-member NRHA approved judging team presides over all NRHA sanctioned events. The high and low scores are discarded and the results tabulated from the remaining three score cards. A base score of 70 points is set as the equivalent of an average ride with a half point to 1.5-point addition or subtraction for maneuvers performed above or below average. A zero score indicates an average, correct performance. The NRHA Handbook states, “To rein a horse is not only to guide him, but also to control his every movement. The best reined horse should be willingly guided or controlled with little or no apparent resistance and dictated to completely.” The formal pattern sets include combinations of small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs over the hocks, turns of 360 degrees done with one rear foot in place and the signature element in reining, a sliding stop from a full gallop known as “the slide.” Every class is assigned one of the patterns from the handbook, every competitor rides the same pattern and each pattern must be completed in the exact order described.

returns as our arena sponsor, Markel Insurance Company this year sponsors our Draw Party, Kyle Tack from Whitesboro, Texas returns for a seventh year, Bingham Equipment Company returns as our tractor sponsor and SmartPax returns as our Celebrity Slide event sponsor. In addition, this year Silver Spurs Equine, LLC joins to promote their American Quarter Horse stallions to our breeders.” At the end of the show last year, the “founding fathers” came forward with a message of continuing support for the Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Futurity. At that time Dick Ames, recognizing the need to reassure people about the program said, “Those who have worked toward breeding Arabian reiners now know that their efforts can continue, there is going to be a market for their stock. This sport is growing even as some of the other show disciplines are struggling a bit, interest in reining is growing.” Joe Betten points to the accuracy of Ames’ statements. “I ride with Crystal McNutt who sold nine reiners between Thanksgiving and the end of the year. And I know she is looking for several clients now. I saw more excitement and enthusiasm for reining at U.S. Nationals and I see that enthusiasm plus more carrying forward to this show.” In the words of Tom Redmond, “What is important now is that we ‘grow the business’, get more people involved. Bring in additional prize money and keep the momentum going. We’ve got a long way to go to have the kind of money the Quarter Horse shows offer, but we’ve got a solid product here and people committed to the future.” A little time spent observing all the laughter and good-natured humor flowing around the arena proves the best introduction to reining. The combination of western clothing, boots and hats, great love for horses, and people who enjoy each other’s company while talking horses makes for an easy sell. Then add the potential for cash rewards, and maybe … a reining Arabian or Half-Arabian is in your future. n
