The 2022 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Metallic Cat World Championship Futurity returns to the iconic Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, from November 14 through December 10, 2022, with millions of dollars up for grabs in this record-breaking cutting competition.
The NCHA World Championship Futurity was established in 1962 in Sweetwater, Texas, and has grown over the past 60 years to include over 2,100 entries from around the world. This event features three-year-old cutting horses that are competing for the first time ever across 27 days of competition. Event attendees will experience not only the world-class cutting competition taking place each day in the Coliseum but will also see the daily Best of the West Trade Show located in the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibit Hall and special events for the entire family to enjoy throughout the facility.
On Friday, November 18, join us for the NCHA Western Runway Fashion Show presented by Beau Galyean Stallion Services featuring Ghostwood Blended Bourbon and live music from Fort Worth’s own Summer Dean. This family-friendly event will feature the latest in western fashion featuring items from the Best of the West Trade Show. Saturday, November 19, will include Strait to the Tailgate, a free event featuring live music from Texan artist Colton Rice and Amanda Kate Ferris as the headliner. Join us for great music, food and giveaways just across the street from Dickies Arena.
If animals are more your speed, the NCHA World Championship Futurity will include three opportunities for the children to enjoy live animals, all in the climate-controlled Best of the West Trade Show. On Saturday, November 26, join us for a free petting zoo and complimentary face painting. Mark your calendar for December 3 and 4 to visit Cowboy Santa and his live reindeer!
