South Texas Reining Horse Association Special Award Programs
We are happy to announce three very Special Award Programs for 2021!!!
STRHA is excited to announce a new award program for 2021: The Buckle Bonanza Class Champion Series sponsored by Don Byrne and Red Horse Reining Stables!!! We will have buckle awards at 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!
Who wants a chance to win a custom-made pair of chaps??? STRHA is replacing the saddle series program for 2021 with a "Year End Finals: Run for the Award" program. We will be awarding two pairs of chaps: One for the NonPro Clean-Slate Finals winner and one for the STRHA $3K Clean-Slate Finals winner. A BIG thank you to Great Southwest Equestrian Center (GSEC), Todd Martin Performance Horses and Steve Archer Quarter Horses for once again sponsoring this finals series.
We will run this chaps series similar to how we ran the saddle series. Riders must be current STRHA members in good standing for points to count toward qualifying for a Clean-Slate Finals Run to be held at the Heritage Classic Reining Show at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, TX. You must be a member of STRHA at the start of the show for points to count, and you must enter the class to have a chance to win and be eligible for the finals! The top10 Rider/Horse combination (NRHA Point System) after the 4 qualifying shows for NonPro and STRHA $3K Classes will be eligible for the finals. If multiple riders are tied for 10th place, all tied riders will be eligible to compete in the finals. STRHA Board of Directors reserve the right to adjust this award program to include awards and eligibility requirements if needed and at their discretion.
STRHA will once again have a STRHA $3,000 buckle series! STRHA will be offering a buckle to the winner each time the class is offered. You may only win one buckle every (2) two years. So if the class winner has already been awarded a buckle within the 2 year time period, the buckle will be awarded to the next eligible, highest placing contestant.
