Cutting Futurity LiveShot




Quarter Horse News blazes new frontiers with a Progressive Web App that puts the rodeo in your pocket.

The sport of “cutting” may have its roots in the old west, but coverage of the 56th annual National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) World Championship Futurity is state-of-the-art thanks to the Cutting Futurity IHUBApp being managed by the Quarter Horse News. Powered by InspireHUB Technologies Inc., the IHUBApp offers fans of the sport the opportunity to personalize their experience with one of the world’s premier equine events, which is being conducted at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center in Fort Worth, Texas November 15 – December 10. The 26-day event offers total prize money of over $3 million for competitors that come to the Futurity from across the United States and around the world.

As the foremost print and online source for news and information in the performance horse world, Quarter Horse News has adopted the IHUBApp to provide even more complete and in-depth coverage of the NCHA Futurity event.

What makes the IHUBApp such a powerful tool at events like this one is the Progressive Web App technology it's based on, working on any device, whether mobile or desktop and remaining available even when connectivity fails. Both visitors and fans from a distance will be able to use their mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers to tap into the Cutting Futurity IHUBApp for up-to-the-minute coverage and a live feed from the event.

Quarter Horse News' IHUBApp, the latest in Progressive Web App technology, allows fans to personalize the content based on their interests. Guests select the channels they are most interested in and get easy access to timely event information and content. There's no need to download an app. Just access it through a browser on your mobile phone or computer.

 The Cutting Futurity IHUBApp can be accessed by texting the word CUTTING to 28748, or via the URL:

 “We are extremely excited to bring this new technology to the performance horse world,” said Patty Tiberg, the Vice President of the Enthusiast Group for Morris Communications Company, the owners of Quarter Horse News. “The IHUBApp is an exceptional communications tool that is geared toward mobile users. We’ll be able to provide even better coverage of the NCHA Futurity via the IHUBApp, both for fans at the show and around the globe.”
