    Time may fly past us, but traditions never leave — and the roots of reined cow horse are no exception. The Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity will head into Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center for the fifth annual futurity and horse show Sept. 15-19. It continues the tradition of the reined cow horse futurity on the West Coast and will feature Open and Non-Pro futurity divisions; Open, Non Pro and Youth horse show classes; a western trade show; plus, the 2021 Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity Horse Sale, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 18. Entries are due Sept. 1, and the futurity draw date is scheduled for Sept. 6.

    “We’re looking forward to another great event in Reno,” invites John Ward of Tulare, one of the founders of the Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity. “We’ll see you in Reno!”

    The Reno Snaffle Bit Futurity will award a total of 17 saddles throughout the week to all futurity division champions and select horse show class champions. There is a variety of special events, too, as the Sherri Gilkerson Memorial Committee is presenting scholarship monies to the Youth Bridle and Youth Limited class champions as well as added-money to the Sherri Gilkerson Memorial Open Bridle. The event will also feature the Benny Guitron Memorial Open Hackamore and Jimmie Paul/ Tenlight Memorial Open Two Rein. Entry information for futurity divisions and horse show classes are available online at www.renosnafflebitfuturity.com/entry-forms. See ad on page 7.

    The August heat is on, and Farnam in right there to help. Your Partner in Horse Care™, has introduced Apple Elite™ Electrolyte Pellets, a new addition to the trusted Apple Elite™ line of supplements. For horses that are picky eaters or sort powder supplements, Apple Elite™ Electrolyte Pellets is a simple way to encourage water consumption and help maintain optimal hydration year-round — and that’s important for support proper digestion, muscle function and recovery. These palatable apple-flavored pellets are hard for horses to resist and can easily be added to your horse’s regular grain ration.

    Electrolyte supplementation is often thought to only be needed by performance horses; however, any horse that sweats for a prolonged period of time, regardless of reason, can benefit from electrolyte supplementation.

    Apple Elite™ Electrolyte Pellets works in two ways to help your horse stay hydrated. Adding it to your horse’s daily supplement regimen can encourage healthy water intake and keep fluid levels in balance, no matter what the day brings. Plus, it is specifically formulated to replace vital minerals that are lost through sweat during exercise, extreme hot and cold weather, and stressful situations.

    Apple Elite™ Electrolyte Pellets can be fed to horses of all ages and workloads and can be beneficial in these scenarios: horses in training or trail riding, shows or events, trailering, during weather changes or extreme weather conditions, settling into a new barn or boarding facility, or when stressed from poor nutrition or digestive upset. Apple Elite™ Electrolyte Pellets is an easy-to-feed solution to an everyday challenge for horse owners with even the pickiest of eaters.

    For a limited time, horse owners will find $5.00 off instant savings coupons on shelves at participating retailers, as well as online at www.farnam.com.
