Feed your passion for horses with a free weekend of entertainment at the Calgary Stampede Cutting Horse Futurity, presented by Wrangler. Cutting is a sport of speed, agility and cow-sense – the ultimate challenge between horse and cow. You’d be surprised how fast and agile a solo cow can be when trying to get back to its herd, and even more impressed with how these young “futurity” horses can anticipate, out-think and out-maneuver the cow.
Local horses and riders take on the best from across North America, with added prizes and commemorative saddles drawing ever more competitors to the event’s first year in all-new Agrium Western Event Centre at Stampede Park.
The Bill Collins Bridleless Showcase is sure to be a big hit with visitors on the evening of Saturday, October 18. The show features top professional cutting horses that work without reins while wearing novelty costumes, plus silent auctions and more fun to raise funds for youth horsemanship scholarships.
