For Immediate Release – March 28, 2020 – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – Just two short weeks ago, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) made swift decisions regarding COVID-19, including instructing the office team to work remotely for at least two weeks and issuing a statement strongly encouraging event producers to postpone or cancel all NRHA-approved events through March 30, 2020. NRHA officials carefully considered both of these decisions and understand their far-reaching implications on the industry as a whole. Following is an update on those situations as well as decisions made this week by the NRHA Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) welcomed South Africa as the newest international affiliate this fall. Greg and Lizelle Garland, NRHA members from South Africa, toyed with the idea of starting an affiliate for about three years before diving in headfirst. Officially recognized in July 2019, the South African affiliate hosted three shows in a span of just two months: the first in August and two more in October.

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.
