Horse & Rider - - From The Editor -

In Septem­ber at the first-ever Reno Snaf­fle Bit Fu­tu­rity, 10 se­lected wild, spayed fil­lies were of­fered for sale with the prospect of be­ing in­vited back to the 2018 Reno Snaf­fle Bit Fu­tu­rity to com­pete in their own di­vi­sion for a $25,000 purse. The 10 fil­lies of­fered in this spe­cial event were se­lected from the Three Fin­gers, South Steen’s, and Beaty’s Butte herds. At sale time, all of the fil­lies had been spayed, vac­ci­nated, and han­dled for 30 days.

The event’s mis­sion with this ini­tia­tive, ac­cord­ing to spon­sor Pro­tect the Har­vest’s Web site ( pro­tect­the­har­vest.com): To show­case the sig­nif­i­cance and abil­i­ties of th­ese re­silient, tough, and beau­ti­ful horses; demon­strate their train­abil­ity; and, hope­fully, en­cour­age more peo­ple to con­sider a horse from our Amer­i­can range­lands.
