NRHA has over 15,000 members and is spreading across the globe, including Europe, South America, Australia, and beyond!
Here in the Northeast, the NERHA hosts multiple reining events offering several divisions of competition thereby enabling riders to compete at all levels, from NRHA Hall of Fame Riders to World Champions, FEI (Olympic) contenders, Youth, Prime Time, Rookies, Green Reiner's and Short Stirrup. Our reining shows also offer multiple levels of horse divisions, making certain that all level of horses from Green, to Novice, Futurity, Derby, Maturity and everything in between are represented. Our goal is to welcome all riders, and their horses, to have a family friendly, fun filled show experience.
Reining is not your typical horse show, if you are looking for a fresh new experience, where competitors cheer each other on while enjoying a common yet individual goal of improving their horsemanship and their horses, be sure to check out one of our shows.
Please accept our warmest welcome to the NERHA; we look forward to meeting you!!!
