South Texas Reining Horse Association Special Award Program
For the past several years, we have been blessed to have had terrific sponsors allowing us to have a saddle series award program for our Rookie and Non Pro riders. I have no information as of yet on sponsorship of a saddle series for 2021! Information will be posted if/when sponsors are obtained for this particular award program! A BIG thank you again to theGreat Southwest Equestrian Center (GSEC), Todd Martin Performance Horses, and Steve Archer Quarter Horses for their past sponsorship of the saddle series award program!
In 2021, we are fortunate to be able to offer a wonderful new Award Program to our STRHA members -- a Class Champion Buckle at all five (5) of our shows!!! This wonderful series is being sponsored by Don Byrne and Red Horse Reining Stables!
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???
