Known for an impressive resume on the high-performance horse sport scene, Turnabout Farm today became the title sponsor of the Turnabout Farm Non Pro Futurity at the Ariat Tulsa Reining Classic.
The Turnabout Farm Non Pro Futurity will feature $25,000 in added money for Non-Professional competitors in one of the industry’s most important competitions for three-year-old horses.
Turnabout Farm’s top breeding stallion, Gunners Special Nite, is one of the sport’s most celebrated horses. With Tom McCutcheon riding, he won both team and individual gold at the 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games. Later that year he made history again when he became the first western horse to receive the US Equestrian Federation’s highest honor: the Horse of the Year Award, given to the best show horse in the country.
This stellar young stallion is just one part of Turnabout Farm’s world-class breeding operation, which is based at Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses. Turnabout’s lineup of mares includes Open Futurity finalists, producers of over $150,000 in offspring earnings, and the 2011 FEI World Reining Finals Individual Gold Medalist, Darlins Not Painted. These mares and their foals represent the best bloodlines in the industry:
