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!
New Award Program for 2021
STRHA is excited to announce a new award program for 2021: A Class Champion Buckle Series sponsored by Don Byrne and Red Horse Reining Stables for ALL FIVE STRHA shows!!!
This is an STRHA Award Program with something for everyone! The intent is to offer all levels of horses and riders an opportunity to compete for a buckle at each show. Buckles will be awarded to the STRHA member with the highest number of points in that class (i.e. Top Placing STRHA Member) at each of our shows for the following 16 NRHA classes: Youth 10 & Under (aka Short Stirrup), Youth 13 & Under, Youth 14-18, Green as Grass Levels 1&2, Rookie Levels 1&2, Prime Time Rookie, Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro, Limited Non Pro, Prime Time Non Pro, Novice Horse Non Pro Levels 1&2, Open, and Rookie Professional. You must be a member of STRHA at the start of the show, and you must enter the class to have a chance to win!
Note: This is a separate award program from the STRHA $3000 Rider buckle series. The STRHA $3K buckle award program will continue in 2021 as in previous years. This means we're awarding 17 buckles at each of our shows!!! How awesome is that???
