If you’ll be in the area of Ardmore, Oklahoma, this weekend, this is a must-see event: the Kalpowar Quarter Horses Celebrity Spectacular held in conjunction with the Southwest Reined Cow Horse Association’s futurity and derby.

H&R regular Clinton Anderson, frequent H&R expert sources Jason Martin and Charlie Cole, clinician Chris Cox, cutter Matt Gaines, and reiners Sam Smith and Brian Bell are slated to compete in the “celebrity” reined cow horse event on Saturday night at 7 p.m., local time, in the Hardy Murphy Coliseum.

We think it sounds like a great time. If you go, be sure to report back with who won and any other stories about the showcase.Which trainers would you like to see compete in an event like this?

Also, look for a feature with Jason Martin and famed horse Harley D Zip in the November issue!
