The Reining Horse Association of Nevada (RHAN) was formed to promote the sport of reining in northern Nevada. Our primary goal is simple: provide opportunities to show reining horses. We also provide clinics to improve overall horsemanship skills.
Our association is low key, friendly and open to all ages and levels of riders. Our competitions feature classes for all ages and skill levels for horses and riders. We also have amended our bylaws specifically to provide additional
showing opportunities. Any
horse 5 years and younger may be ridden 2 handed in a legal snaffle bit
or bosal hackamore, in any class. This is our only exception from the standard National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) rules. All other NRHA rules apply.
Full results for our 2013 season can be found in the points and standings section of our website. Congratulations to all our winners and thank you again to everyone for participating.
Our annual awards dinner will be held at the Eagle's Hall on Saturday - November 30, 2013 at 6:00PM. We will follow our usual format - the club will provide the main entree and we are asking everyone to bring a side dish. What you bring will be based on your last name - as indicated below:
G-K Hot Side Dish
We will have a silent auction again this year. We will also be accepting nominations for the 2014 Board of Directors Positions that will be vacated at the end of this year. We expect it to be a fun evening as usual.
We are working on planning a February clinic - indoors. We are also looking into more tightly coordinating our show schedule for 2014 with the Nevada Reined Cow and Cutting Horse Association since many of our members compete in both show circuits. More on this soon as well.
