Colorado Reined Cowhorse Association

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 to the highest scoring Open, Non Pro, Non Pro Ltd, $1K Non Pro Ltd and Youth rider/horse based upon the highest five combined reining and fence (box) scores.
