New for this show season...

We will no longer have online registrations for our shows. You MUST check-in at the show secretaries booth upon arriving at the show to complete the registration process. As a reminder, you are required to have copy's of your NRHA card, the horses coggins and ownership papers. Also, please bring a copy of the horses registration papers if applicable. As a reminder, it is your responsibility as the rider to check your class eligibility. We had several members get fined last year because they rode in classes that they were ineligible for. The NERHA does not check rider eligibility.

Anyone planning on renewing your NRHA membership at a Northeast show; NRHA is going to charge a $30 fee in addition to regular membership fees if you renew or sign up for a membership at an affiliate show. They are trying to encourage members to renew online. Renew early and save some $$! This is not a Northeast Reining Horse Association policy, this is an NRHA policy.

The Big E fairgrounds has changed their fee structure for camping on the show grounds. Starting this year the NERHA will be charging a fee to anyone "dry-camping" (i.e. you are camping but not plugged in to water or electric in one of the camping spots but are using the facilities). In addition, 50 amp sites are now available. The show programs will have the fees for each show. 30 amp sites/hook-ups have not changed.
