This year, the Snaffle Bit Futurity moves to Fort Worth, bringing the cream of the 3-year-old crop of cow horses to Cowtown. The young horses claim most of the spotlight, but the event also includes the Hackamore Classic (at right), for 4- and 5-year-old cow horses. Plus, ancillary classes for competitors of all ages and skill levels make it a diverse event with a friendly vibe.
If shopping is more your speed, the Best of the West trade show is a can’t-miss stop. From handcrafted tack to cutting-edge Western apparel to cowboy decor, you’ll find it all in the many vendor booths set up during the show.
