Welcome to the home of the South Texas Reining Horse Association
The STRHA is a National Reining Horse Association affiliate dedicated to the sport of reining. Reining is one of the fastest growing sports in the equestrian world, and includes many of the globe’s finest equine athletes. Founded by true enthusiasts of the sport and horses of reining, the STRHA strives to serve like-minded individuals and families both within the south Texas geographical region as well as outside of our unofficial borders. In starting this association, we aimed to extend a hand, encourage, and engage members who had previously been uninvolved at the affiliate level. It remains our intention to give all members a place to set and achieve goals within a time and financial commitment of their personal choosing.
If you are new to the sport, or want to learn more, look through our trainers directory and find one close to you. They will provide you with access to information, lessons, training and more.
If you would like to become a member of the STRHA, complete the membership form and remit it to the address provided.
If you are in the area during one of our shows, please stop in and stay awhile! We would love to meet you!
UPDATE - Saddle Series for 2020
Update for the 2020 Saddle Series - Because of reduced levels in STRHA sponsorships and donations/fundraisers brought about by this crazy pandemic, we will not be able to award saddles for the 2020 Saddles Series.We are fortunate, however, to be able to award two Travis Stillson Headstalls in place of the saddles. For those unaware of Travis Stillson's artistry and exceptional leather craftsmanship, be sure to check out his facebook page! A BIG thank you again to the Great Southwest Equestrian Center (GSEC), Todd Martin Performance Horses, and Steve Archer Quarter Horses for continuing to support this award series!
Saddle Series eligibility qualification for 2020 only - Any non-zero score in one of the first four STRHA shows (nonpro and STRHA $3k classes only) will be able to run in that class finals to be held at the Heritage Classic Show in Katy in September 2020. Winner of the finals class (Nonpro & STRHA $3K) will receive a Travis Stillson Headstall.
STRHA is excited to announce another Saddle Seriesfor 2020!This series is back by popular demand and thanks to our great sponsors! So, please join me in giving a BIG thank you to the Great Southwest Equestrian Center (GSEC), Todd and Taumi Martin of Todd Martin Performance Horses, and Steve and Andrea Archer of Steve Archer Quarter Horses for again agreeing to sponsor this great event.
