NRHA Affiliate Program

"REINING AT THE GRASSROOTS LEVEL"

The NRHA has established an affiliate championship program to assist the development of reining at the grassroots level. With the assistance of NRHA Corporate Sponsorship, the Association contributes over $40,000 to participating Affiliate Championship Programs.

You may choose to set your sights on a regional award. Every year each affiliate may put together a circuit and send their top fifteen representatives from each class to the regional East Central, Mountain, Northeast, North Central, Northwest, South Central, Southeast, Southwest, Eastern Canada, Western Canada, and Mexico Affiliate Championship shows.

Many affiliates also offer year-end awards to high money or point earning horse/rider pairs. Check out our affiliate sites on the lists of NRHA Affiliates below.
