2018 Updates
We have had a few new exciting changes this year, two in particular that we wanted to remind all of you about!
 
For the 2018 European Championships Qualification Timeline, please note that it is structured as follows:
 
January 1-December 31 of 2017 the top ten from each class will be qualified for the 2018 European Championships. In addition, if a member from the start of 2018 within 45 days prior to the European Championships manages to earn enough points to get into the original top ten standings then he too shall qualify. For example:
 
If the following were the Top Ten Qualifiers for the Limited Non Pro in their affiliate as of December 31, 2017:
 
Bob: 50 Points
Betty: 48 Points
Riley: 35 Points
Liz: 32 Points
Kristen: 23 Points
Lauren: 20 Points
Shianne: 15 Points
Laura: 13 Points
Annika: 10 Points
Lerin: 7 Points
 
And from January 1, 2018 through 45 days prior to the European Championships, Debbie earns 8 Points in the Limited Non Pro in the same affiliate, then Debbie would technically take 10th place and would also qualify for the European Championships. So, in total, this affiliate would be sending the original Top 10 plus Debbie to make a total of 11 qualifiers to the European Championships.
 
Starting in 2018, the NRHA Board of Directors wished to make NRHA approved classes which are $2,000 or more in added money have the prestige of being a $2,000 or more added NRHA class with all of the recognition it deserves. They passed the rule change that requires all shows with classes that have $2,000 or more in added money (each individual class) to offer the NRHA Lawson trophy. This would require show management teams to purchase these trophies and have them available for the Champions of these classes. We ask that when the show approval is sent in that it contains payment for these trophies as well as shipping addresses for them. If this information is not included, the trophies will be ordered and billed to the billing contact on the application. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to let me or your European Council representative know!
 
Also starting in 2018, the European Nomination Conditions were updated by the European Council and the NRHA Board of Directors to have the age of European Derby horses be 5,6,7, and 8-year-olds. This means that four-year-olds will show in the NRHA European Futurity but not the European Derby in their four-year-old year. If you have any questions on this, please do feel free to speak to your European Council representative or directly to me! There have been press releases on these topics as well, but we wanted to reach out once again to help clarify!
 
Please note if you have any questions you are more than welcome to reach out to me, your representative on the European Council, or the European Executive Board.
 
Sincerely,
 
Samantha Oldfield

New Protocol for NRHA Professional of the Year Awards

or Immediate Release – March 7, 2018 – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – In the fall of 2017, the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Professionals Committee unanimously voted to modify the nomination and voting procedures for their yearly awards.
The intention of this modification is to gain more participation from NRHA Affiliates and broaden the pool of deserving nominees.
 
The new nomination and voting process will be implemented this year and will follow the procedures below.

NRHA Affiliates will submit one nomination for each of the five award categories. It will be up to each affiliate to determine how they select their nominees. Nominations for each category will need a separate form.

Nominations will remain at the current due date of November 1. Once the nomination period is complete, the NRHA Professionals Committee Staff Liaison will collect and compile all nominations for the committee to review.
The NRHA Professionals Committee will review all nominations, selecting the top five professionals for each category.

Once the top five are selected, an electronic vote will be sent to all current NRHA Professional members.

After the voting is closed, winners will be announced. Any ties will be broken by the NRHA Professionals Committee.

The NRHA Professionals Committee strives to strengthen its current programs through constant evaluation. They hope this change will afford more of the industry’s best professionals the opportunity to receive the recognition they deserve through a more structured nomination and voting processes.
 
Forms and further instructions will be available on the NRHA website before nominations begin this fall.
For questions, contact Hayley Eberle, NRHA Professionals Committee staff liaison, at heberle@nrha.com or (405) 946-7400 ext. 103.

This was announced back in November of 2017:
Eight years ago, the Board of Directors voted to change the NRHA Lawson, Morrison, and Morgan (formerly known as Pewter) trophy makeup to a resin material rather than the traditional metal alloy design. The change was made in an effort to lower costs for shows, as trophy prices had increased over 50% in 10 years.
 
Since the change, many questions have arisen about the trophies. While cost was improved with the resin material, durability in shipping was not ideal—diminishing the perceived value of the coveted awards. As a result, the NRHA Executive Committee has unanimously voted to change all NRHA trophies back to their original makeup of metal alloy after teaming up with Montana Silversmiths to offer these higher quality trophies at a better price margin than in 2010.
 
Trophy costs will follow the scale below for U.S. orders. International shipping costs will vary.
 
Trophy TypeTrophy CostShipping CostTotal Cost
Lawson            $385          $65                  $450
Morrison        $300          $20                 $320
Morgan            $195          $15                  $210
 
 
NRHA will also sell the remaining resin stock at a first come, first served basis. Resins will not be restocked once the remaining trophies are sold.
 
NRHA understands the critical need to balance cost, efficiency, and quality within every aspect of the organization. Changing the trophies back to their original, metal alloy makeup achieves this balance while restoring a mantle-worthy award back to its original glory.

I am sorry it has not been cleared in the invitation but we do have a day fee for all divisions as we have been also last year.
The result of this day fee is that you only pay for a max of 4 classes in the same division.
For example if your choice is aqha amateur L1 classes then you only pay for 4 classes and all classes in L1 amateur is of no charge!

It is the same for Oak open, L1 Open, Amateur and so on :)
But if you choose to for example to enter Oak open and AQHA or APHA open then it is 4 classer för Oak Open and then 4 classes for AQHA or APHA open. It does not cross over...

I believe the Garden of England has the same offer at their shows.
Welcome.
