THE RUN FOR A MILLION is the richest event in the history of western equine sports. The event will be hosted by the prestigious South Point Arena and Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada from August 15 – 17, 2019. Twelve riders, including some of the most accomplished NRHA Professionals in the history of Reining, will compete for a purse of $1,000,000.
Academy-Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, writer of HELL OR HIGH WATER and SICARIO, WRITER/DIRECTOR of WIND RIVER and co-creator of YELLOWSTONE, wanted to design a venue that showcased the talent of both horse and rider in one of the most demanding equine sports in existence: Reining. Sheridan has partnered with Amanda Brumley, Brumley Management Group producer of three National Reining Horse Association leading events world-wide, to create and produce this one of a kind event.
THE RUN FOR A MILLION offers the unprecedented opportunity to introduce millions of viewers to the sport of Reining. In addition to the main event there will be a $100,000 Shoot Out, open to all Reiners and horses. On top of the tremendous prize money, the top five riders in the Shoot Out Finals will be guaranteed a position in the 2020 Million Dollar Invitational at THE RUN FOR A MILLION.
Other performances include THE RUN FOR A MILLION Rookie Championships, $50,000 Non Pro Championships and $50,000 Invitational Freestyle. Riders can qualify for these Championships at the National Reining Breeders Classic in Katy TX, the National Reining Horse Association Derby in Oklahoma City OK, and the Reining by the Bay in Woodside, CA. To be invited to participate in the $50,000 Freestyle, riders must submit a video of a Reining Freestyle performance to firstname.lastname@example.org
The goal in creating and producing THE RUN FOR A MILLION is to introduce new people to the world of western performance horses while supporting all of those who have made Reining their life’s passion. It is also intended to offer a platform for the products horsemen and horsewomen depend on that is unprecedented in its reach and value.
