Midwest Reining Horse Association

Reining Horse SlidingMidwest Reining Horse Association is an affiliate of the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA). MWRHA has a circuit of shows and the top ten horse and rider combinations of each class are eligible to compete in the Regional Affiliate Finals (RAF). The top 8 from the RAF will be eligible to compete in the North American Affiliate Championships (NAAC). To be eligible you must be a member of NRHA, a member of an affiliate such as MWRHA and must designate an affiliate. For information on affliliates see the membership page. While you can be a member of many different affiliates, you must designate one you are “riding for”, meaning if you ride to a top 10 finish for MWRHA you would go to the RAF’s representing the North Central Affiliate.

Horse SilhouetteGreen Reiners (category 10) can show in MWRHA’s classes that are approved by NRHA, to earn points toward Affiliate Circuit awards and NRHA awards. Green riders are eligible to show in Pard’s Green Reiner Classes. See MWRHA’s membership page for details on this program or the Frequently Asked Questions. An Associate membership is all a Green rider is required to have from NRHA to show category 10 classes. But if a green reiner wishes to show category 1-9 classes (rookie, novice, non-pro for example) he will have to get a general membership. If you have any questions regarding MWRHA or NRHA, please contact any board member.
