john swales million dollar club, National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA)

John Swales is the first Canadian rider to win over $1 million in lifetime earnings in National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) classes and join the prestigious NRCHA Million Dollar Club. Swales earnings surpassed $1 million during the Alberta Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, Derby, & Cow Horse Show in Claresholm, Alberta at the end of August 2023. He’s only the 27th rider to achieve the feat.

Canadian-bred horses earned a total of 22 All American Quarter Horse Congress Championship titles, 14 Reserve Championships and one Grand Championship at the 2023 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and National Snaffle Bit Association sanctioned show. Hosted by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association in Columbus, Ohio, the show was held from September 26 to October 22 at the Ohio State Expo Center. Traditionally this show is one of the biggest and most prestigious events within the North American Quarter Horse market.
