Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity officials announced in late September that Nutrena has come on board to sponsor the annual Open Futurity Draw Party.

The Nutrena Draw Party is slated for Thursday, October 27 at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum and is free to everyone. The evening features a wine and cheese bar, beer and soft drinks, and dinner will be sponsored by Ardmore's popular Red Dirt Brew House. Along with the live draw for finals positions there will be door prizes and other special activities, including the Halloween Dog Costume Parade benefiting Rein In Cancer. The best-costumed dog and runner-up will receive special gift baskets.
