This event was previously held in conjunction with the Snaffle Bit Futurity® in Fort Worth, Texas. The move is largely due to the growth that the NRCHA is seeing across the board with entries and the desire to keep premier event schedules optimal for competitors and the equine athletes alike.

"The Hackamore Classic is a historical event for the NRCHA. We are pleased with the growth we have seen over the past few years while hosting the Hackamore Classic at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity® and we are ready for this event to stand on its own. Tulsa Expo Square is a top-notch facility that will be a great home to one of our premier events. We look forward to the partnership with Tulsa and are excited for the 2023 show!"

The Hackamore Classic is designed to showcase the traditional cow horse evolution. The event provides hackamore horses, which are 4- and 5-year-olds, the opportunity to compete in the three-event derby which includes the herd/rein/cow work.

In addition to the Hackamore Classic, this event will also host the third and final qualifier for The Run For A Million, the inaugural 4-event World’s Greatest Non Pro, along with a full slate of horse show classes.

More information regarding the event including schedule, host hotels and entry deadlines will be forthcoming. For more information on upcoming events and the latest news visit NRCHA.com.
