Needing an event logo for one of our sport's largest events, the "2012 NRHA Derby Show."
UPDATE --- The logo needs to say "2012 NRHA Derby Show." We like to stick with having the block letters of "NRHA" in the logo (uploaded file). Incorporating the sliding horse (also uploaded) is nice, but not necessary. (These are both copyrighted images, of course).
The event purse is approx. $1 million with horses and riders coming from around the globe. We're know for fast, dirt-flying stops and precision maneuvers performed by horse and rider.

UPDATE --- Horse images - Just a little input for the non-horsey-types - We need horses that look like "reining horses." You can find examples of that on http://www.nrhafuturity.com in the Gallery. The horses are highly trained and are judged on their willingness to follow riders subtle ques (so rearing or bucking horses aren't the style we look for).
The logo does not have to be cowboy/western. It's ok if you want to go that way, but something like a pro sports team feel is good.
Our membership is 75% female, but our top riders are male. Worldwide audience. Rural background/lifestyle - with average income being well above the norm.
