REMEMBER TO DOUBLE-CHECK:

Does your horse’s NRHA competition license show the correct (current) owner’s names?
Is the horse’s owner a current member of NRHA?
Is the rider a current member of NRHA?

  • If you are trying to qualify for the NRHA Western Affiliate Finals, or for the WCRHA year-end awards program, both the rider and the owner of the horse must also be current members of WCRHA.
  • It is the responsibility of each owner and rider to be aware of the official earnings of the horse and/or rider as recorded by NRHA. We strongly recommend that you check with NRHA priorto completing your entry.
