The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Executive Committee and Board of Directors convened on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 to share and discuss the thoughts and concerns of the membership regarding how the Run for a Million Invitational will affect NRHA Lifetime Earnings (LTE). The board unanimously voted in favor of creating a new category so that the earnings from the Run for a Million Invitational will not count towards LTE and NRHA Million Dollar status.

The great Yellow Jersey, the hugely attractive palomino stallion with an impressive show record, whose career advanced between the reins of six different riders all the while maintaining excellent results, is coming home – or, at least, to the country, Italy, where his fame as a great athlete was initially built and established. The news is as fresh as it comes: the prestigious Elementa Centre will now be home to the ‘golden’ Champion who is due to arrive in the coming weeks. Thus, the Facility adds a second World Equestrian Games Gold Medallist to its collection of “happy” horses – because welfare is top among the priorities that Cecilia Fiorucci, owner of the magnificent Centre near Rome, has for her equine guests.

Reining fans and participants around the world are aware of the Run for a Million Invitational, its magnitude, and the unique platform it brings to reining. The National Reining Horse Association Board of Directors understands and appreciates the opinions of all members and how they feel lifetime earnings should be recorded. The board of directors and executive committee took part in many discussions with members, and, as a decision-making body, fulfilled its responsibility to make a decision with the best interests of the organization in mind. The steps are outlined below.
