2014 Upcoming CRCA Aged Events & Horse Shows:
Please check the Events page for the schedule.

We are adding three new classes to all Horse Shows for 2014:
i) Novice Bridle Horse - similar in concept to the Novice Horse Derby class, this class will allow bridle horses with earnings less than $7500 as of November 15, 2013 to have their own class.  It will be a standalone class - not run concurrent with any other bridle classes.

ii) $500 Non Pro Ltd - designed for the beginning Non Pro Ltd rider, this class will include only Riders who have less than $500 in lifetime earnings from all organizations (not just NRCHA) as of November 15, 2013. Rider must also not have been down the fence more than 3 times in NRCHA competitions. Like the $5k Non Pro Ltd class, the owner does not have to own the horse being ridden. It will be a standalone class - not run concurrent with the other Non Pro Ltd classes.

iii) $2500 Pro Am Derby – since the Level 1 Ltd Open class now has a higher $15,000 rider LAE earnings limit we are offering a $2500 class.  Rider’s NRCHA lifetime LAE earnings must be less than $2500 as of November 15, 2013.  It will be a standalone class but will be attached to the end of the Open classes or scheduled immediately thereafter.

Reduced Office/Cattle Fees for all classes in 2014:
We started this at our Futurity last October and will continue the reduced fees for all NRCHA approved classes in 2014.

Important NRCHA Non Pro Limited rule change for 2014:
You can now enter the Non Pro Ltd and $5k Non Pro Ltd classes as long as you have not earned more than $750 in fence classes.  There is no rule prohibiting you from entering both the Non Pro Ltd classes and Non Pro Bridle classes (or Two Rein) at the same show.

If you are coming to our show, you must let us know ---> Show Info
