2016 Open Derby Champion, Some Kinda Merada, owned by Cable Creek ranch and shown by Todd Bergen.
At the NRCHA Derby, juicy paychecks await four and five-year-old horses, many of which competed at the Snaffle Bit Futurity when they were three. Horses may be shown in either a snaffle bit or a hackamore. They are judged in three challenging events: herd work, rein work and cow work, with a preliminary round of competition to determine who will return for the clean-slate finals. The Derby features nine divisions to suit all levels, from million-dollar riders in the Open, entry-level competitors in the Amateur and Non-Pro Limited, and everyone in between. Another NRCHA Derby highlight is the $50,000 added Holy Cow Performance Horses Bridle Spectacular. The Derby is held in Paso Robles, a charming city on the central California coast, the heart of reined cow horse country.
Limited Age Event Added Money totaling $130,000 includes $100,000 added to the Open and $25,000 added to the Non Pro.
The CD Survivor Memorial Open Bridle Spectacular has $50,000 added money.
Horse Show Added Money totals $19,500 and includes a $5,000 added Non Pro Bridle Spectacular.
