Is your next superstar reiner consigned to the NRHA/Markel Futurity Sales this year? It’s worth the consideration, as these 10 sale success stories show.

There’s only one place you’ll find the best breeders, premiere reining prospects, and buyers from around the world come early December: The NRHA/Markel Futurity Sales.

Each year during the NRHA Futurity, crowds gather to watch and bid on horses in the Select Yearling Sale, the Futurity Prospect & Select Broodmare Sale, and the Marketplace Sale. Seasoned professionals and newcomers alike trust they’re looking at the best of the best—and for good reason: graduates of these three sales have gone on to achieve success at every level of NRHA competition. 

“It’s a common thing to see a sale graduate do really well,” remarks NRHA Five Million Dollar Rider Andrea Fappani. “The quality is so high at the [NRHA/Markel Futurity] sales that you see those sale graduates showing up more and more. It’s just a great place to go buy the best horses.”
