Founded May 30, 1996, The CRCA promotes the training of

and interest in reined working cow horses among the

amateur horsemen and the younger horsemen of this

nation and the world; to use and encourage the use of standard rules for holding and judging contests of

the reined working cow horse and the humane methods

of working cattle from horseback; to perpetuate the

early traditions of highly trained and well reined

working cow horses; and to promote humane

exhibits and cow horse events and

contests in expositions and shows.

Riders compete for cash payouts that are funded by entry

fees and other added money amounts. We are proud to offer Year-end awards in all NRCHA horseshow classes, and saddles as well as circuit awards throughout the year.
