Top 20 Program
Professionals Sharing Wisdom
The NRHA Professionals Committee developed a program to serve as a connection between NRHA and its Affiliates. This Top
20 Program has been designed to utilize the talent and celebrity status of NRHA's top riders to connect with, educate and
motivate green and seasoned riders who want to learn and improve their skills. The NRHA Top 20 Program is for NRHA's top
riders to serve as ambassadors for Reining and provide valuable experiences for NRHA members, riders and horses.
How to Identify a Top 20 Rider
The NRHA will identify, promote and highlight NRHA's Top 20 money earning NRHA Professionals in the NRHA Reiner magazine
and the NRHA website. The current year's earnings in all classes will be used and the Top 20 list will begin monthly publication
in the NRHA Reiner and on the NRHA's official web site (www.nrha.com) once show results begin to come into the NRHA office.
A Rider's earnings only begin to count for Top 20 purposes from the date they join NRHA Professionals.
1. Be a current member of NRHA Professionals.
2. They must agree to give back to NRHA and its Affiliates by volunteering and sharing their expertise (if they have appeared
on the Top 20 list at any time during the year).
Asking a Rider to an Event
Many of the NRHA's top riders make a living through breeding, training and the sale of horses as well as in the show pen.
Their appearance at an Affiliate function will give NRHA members the chance to meet top riders and improve their knowledge
and skills on many aspects of the Reining industry.
The Affiliate will be responsible for contacting the rider of their choice and inviting them to the event, based upon rider
The Affiliate will pay reasonable travel expenses for the invited rider and provide a suitable environment for the seminar.
For more information, contact NRHA or call 405-946-7400.
