NRHA European Futurity Postponed

The NRHA European Executive Board has decided to postpone the 2020 NRHA European Futurity due to the spreading of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Northern Italy, particularly in Cremona, where the NRHA European Futurity was to be held. Several surrounding towns have been shut down, and a case of the coronavirus was diagnosed in Cremona itself. The show management team as well as NRHA wish to err on the side of caution for the safety of members and their horses.
The NRHA European Executive Board will review potential dates to reschedule this event, and communication will be sent once those dates are finalized. The Italian Reining Horse Association will refund any fees that have been paid for the European Futurity.
We thank you for your patience in these times and look forward to a successful event later this year.

The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) strives to recognize excellence amongst its members. The NRHA Professionals of the Year awards are just one avenue for showcasing the accomplishments of reining trainers in the industry. The five awards include NRHA Professional Horseman of the Year, Becky Hanson Horsewoman of the Year, NRHA Non Pro Coach of the Year, NRHA Youth Coach of the Year, and NRHA Up-and-Coming Trainer of the Year. “The Professionals of the Year awards are very important because we have a lot of people in our industry from around the world who deserve to be honored on a national level and recognized by their peers,” said Patrick Flaherty, NRHA Professionals Committee chairman. “These awards aren’t just given to anyone; these recipients have worked hard their entire careers, and it’s evident to their clients and their peers that they’re more than deserving of this recognition.”
Each NRHA affiliate is asked to nominate NRHA Professionals for the awards based on their unrelenting work both inside the arena and out. NRHA Professionals then choose the recipients by voting in each category. Winners will receive their awards during the 2020 NRHA Derby at the awards banquet held in June in Oklahoma City.
