East Coast Reined Cow Horse Classic Teams with Show By Appointment to Offer Finals Qualification Opportunity

Release Date: 2013-07-11

Murfreesboro, TN – July 11, 2013 – Show By Appointment (SBA) and the East Coast Reined Cow Horse Classic (ECRCHC) are teaming up to offer competitors another chance to qualify for SBA’s $100,000 Championship Finals. SBA will run a full set of classes concurrently with the classes at ECRCHC, which will be held July 17-21 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, TN.

By entering the SBA classes as well as their regular classes, riders can compete for two show associations, ECRCHC and SBA, and two sets of prize money with just one run. Part of SBA’s mission is to make reined cow horse showing more affordable, and the collaboration with ECRCHC serves this purpose by allowing riders to qualify for the Championship Finals without having to spend another weekend on the road traveling to a show.

“We’re teaming up with the other biggest cow horse show on the East Coast,” said Show By Appointment’s Rick Steed. “We’re partnering with them to run SBA classes concurrently with their classes and give riders another chance to qualify while they’re already at the show.”

Along with the opportunity to qualify for the $100,000 SBA Championship Finals, riders who enter the SBA classes have a shot at claiming a circuit championship. SBA circuits are typically comprised of four shows in a certain region. At ECRCHC, riders will compete on two days and be assessed by two judges each time. Each judge will be counted as a show for the purposes of calculating the championships, and circuit champions will be presented with awards at the show.

“We’re working together to build a stronger cow horse community,” Steed said. “This is a combined effort. We’d like to thank all of the East Coast trainers and competitors for their support.”

Riders should contact SBA show secretary Debbie Hall at or 321-863-0456 to pre-enter for the SBA classes at ECRCHC and claim their chance to compete in the $100,000 SBA Championship Finals, slated for October 10-13 in Sarasota, FL.

About Show By Appointment

Show By Appointment’s fresh approach to reined cow horse competition has been an unprecedented success in its first season. SBA aims to make showing “Fun, Fair, and Affordable” for competitors.  To accommodate those traveling long distances to show and help busy riders fit showing in at their convenience, SBA allows riders to reserve their own ride times in advance. This cuts down on usual travel expenses such as stall rentals and hotels and encourages competitors to make the trip and join in the fun.

Each SBA series includes four shows. Riders who compete at three out of the four shows earn a place in the Championship Finals, slated for October 10-13, 2013, at Triple J Ranch in Sarasota, FL. The Finals offer over $100,000 in cash and prizes. Competitors may also qualify for the Finals in absentia by simply sending in entries and payment to each of the four shows. This system is designed to allow riders a chance to compete in the Championship Finals without spending the season chasing points and incurring excessive competition expenses.
