NRCHA Affiliates are an important part of the National Reined Cow Horse Association – providing local competition opportunities for members all over the world.
Promotional and administrative materials are provided to affiliates and all NRCHA approved shows are listed in the Reined Cow Horse News as well as on the NRCHA website.
NRCHA provides two important programs that are only available for affiliates. The first is an Affiliate Sponsorship which gives NRCHA Affiliates a $500 sponsorship at the end of each year, for the affiliate to use any way it chooses. The second is an Affiliate Youth Scholarship which gives a scholarship to the Affiliate Youth Bridle and Youth Limited Champions the scholarships are $500 and $250 respectively.
NRCHA Affiliates are eligible for the NRCHA Affiliate of the Year awards. Those are cash awards of $1,500 to the winner and $1,000 to the runner-up each year.
To start an affiliate you will need at least 20 people who are current NRCHA members in good standing, they can all be new members or existing members. With those members in place, there is an annual Affiliate Membership Fee of $100.
