The Canadian Supreme is a not-for-profit society whose sole purpose was to manage a major western horse event. The goal was to make a significant contribution to the western horse industry and hopefully break even each year. For over forty years we reached that goal but now the industry is changing and we feel we cannot continue.
Unfortunately, the stallion program that for years was a significant factor in keeping the incredible payout purses, is declining each year. Trade fair participants are declining, and costs associated with holding a show with multiple disciplines and cattle costs keep rising. These costs need to be passed on to the competitors and we feel that these costs have priced us out of the market.
It is with great sadness that the Canadian Supreme committee announces that it will no longer hold the show in September, effective immediately. We are currently in discussions with cutting and cow horse show producers to provide a venue to hold the 2019 Canadian Supreme nominated cutting and cow horse classes. The nominated reining classes will be held at the Silver Slate Fall Futurity. We are also working on a plan for the 2020 nominations. There are many details to finalize over the next few weeks and once those details are complete we will send out another update.
