In an effort to keep all members safe and healthy, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) will continue to strongly encourage producers of NRHA-approved events to cancel or postpone their horse shows until April 30, 2020. This aligns with President Trump’s announcement yesterday, March 29, 2020, to extend federal social distancing guidelines through the end of April.
To ease pressures on NRHA members, the association announced yesterday that the 2020 NRHA World Champion title races won’t include earnings from March 14 to April 30, 2020, due to shows being postponed or canceled.
Furthermore, qualification for 2020 Affiliate Regional Championships (ARCs) will be waived. Affiliates won’t be required to offer three qualifying shows nor provide designations and membership rosters. When a horse-and-rider pair qualifies for the Adequan® North American Affiliate Championship (NAAC) show at an ARC, that pair may not enter the class they qualified in at another ARC.
