The NRHA Entry Level Reining Program was designed as a developmental tool for NRHA affiliates. 

Developmental programs like this can help organizations attract members, provide opportunities for existing members and strengthen your financial situation. 

With this being said, these classes and shows are specifically designed to target an entry-level audience and be exhibitor-friendly. 

Recently, NRHA has seen extreme interest in entry-level programs for horseman of all backgrounds. 

With added encouragement from affiliates, we have developed a program that we feel has great potential expand the NRHA family. 

The program can capture the attention equine enthusiasts worldwide by making it easier to show, easier to compete at a comfortable level and easier to develop Reining skills.
