Cowboy Class

From the Ranch to the Arena

Beginning in 2023, the Cowboy Class was recognized as a sanctioned Category 1 special event, similar to the all-around and spectacular classes. This class introduces working ranch cowboys to the reined cow horse event. For the first time, local affiliates and show producers will be allowed to host these classes at their approved NRCHA events.

Eligibility for this class will be limited to individuals working on ranching and livestock operations, and who have earned less than $15,000 in NRCHA Open and Non Pro monies outside of the Cowboy Class.

The rules for the Cowboy Class can be found in the NRCHA Rule Book.
