Rookie DayRookie Day events are an exceptional chance for Rookie and Youth riders to work with the top-notch trainers in small groups and then compete in a judged show to test what they have learned.  Champions in Adult and Youth will receive a buckle and Reserve will take home a cooler.  Classic Equine provides great prizes for everyone and the event benefits the Reining Horse Sports Foundation. Cost is $200 for adults and $100 for youth with lunch provided by Darling 888 Ranch. We have a great list of trainers for this great day -- Robin Schoeller, Brandon Brant, Marco Formentin, Steven Marbry and Andrew Fox. For more information and to secure your spot contact Tami Roth at TNRHA@tamiroth.com or see the flyer for more information.  SPACE is LIMITED!  Don't delay!

Bobbie Parsons Memorial Sportsmanship Award

Bobbie Parsons
This award is dedicated to the memory of Bobbie Jo Wallace Parsons of Four Witch Farm in Birmingham, Alabama. She was a large supporter and lifetime member of the TNRHA and the NRHA, and she only began showing in her later years. At 70 years old, Bobbie Parsons was a Green Reiner and accumulated 31 points toward winning her Green Reiner buckle. Her dream, and her vibrant life, was cut short due to cancer.  This award honors her memory in a way that promotes the sportsmanship and qualities in a competitor that she so gracefully represented.

The Bobbie Parsons Memorial Award is for TNRHA Green 1 Reiners only.  The award will go to the year’s most outstanding sportsman as deemed by their fellow competitors, specifically one who is friendly, helpful, supportive, and courteous. Thank you Vicky Edgemon, Janet Rogers, and Jim Parson for sponsoring this wonderful award! Visit Sponsor page for rules.
