Founded in 2012, the Nevada Reining Horse Association (NvRHA) is an organization dedicated to the promotion of the reining horse, youth and the fun and excitement of our sport here in Nevada.
The Nevada Reining Horse Association is a non for profit association dedicated to promoting and encouraging the development of and public interest in the sport of reining. The focus is on developing and maintaining suitable standards of performance and judging and in providing a fun filled, family-oriented atmosphere here in Nevada.
WHAT IS REINING?
Reining is a judged event designed to show the athletic ability of a ranch-type horse within the confines of a show arena. In NvRHA competition, contestants are required to run one of ten approved patterns that are provided by the governing group, NRHA. The patterns books are available through the NRHA and we encourage membership in their fine organization as well as their information filled publication, NRHA Reiner.
Each pattern includes small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs over the hocks, 360 degree spins done in place, and exciting sliding stops that are the hallmark of the reining horse.
The NRHA Judging System is recognized as the leading format for judging an equine event that combines technical and stylistic elements coupled with consideration of "degree of difficulty". Many segments of the equine judging discipline have openly embraced the NRHA Judging System.
THE REINING ESCALATION
NRHA has flourished over the past decade. From 1997-2007, NRHA grew over 40% to over 15,000 members and from 265 NRHA approved shows to 700. In 1997, a total of 1.3 million dollars were paid out in NRHA competition and in 2009 NRHA paid out over 11 million dollars in competition purses.
The NRHA Executive Committee has aligned with other world wide equine associations to accomplish common goals and to move the sport of Reining into the international arena. Gaining acceptance as the first Western Discipline of the United States Equestrian Team (USET) marked an important milestone in the history of Reining, the western horse, and the NRHA.
