If there was an annual award for Perfect NRHA Show of the Year, the 2016 Cactus Reining Classic would seriously have to be in the running.

The competition on days one and two of the event was exceptional, with Shane Brown winning the NRHA Open on day one with Double Loaded Gun (73), and Wind Er Up Wimp (73.5) on day two.
