TNRHA is very grateful to Trish Franks and Family and Stacey Jones and Family for your extremely generous support of the Youth Rookie class for the 2015 show year, sponsoring the NRHA plaques for the winner of each class and the Championship buckle and Reserve Champion prize for the Year End Award winners! Stacey and Trish have always been supporters of youth competition, from 4H and IEA to AQHA and NRHA, and were instrumental in bringing the Youth Rookie class to TNRHA, pledging their support from the beginning. Thank you!

New this Year.... Youth Rookie Class
NRHA is VERY excited to announce the addition of the Youth Rookie Class beginning with the March show in Harriman. This class will run with the regular youth classes and does not require a youth rider to own their own horse to participate. The addition of this class will be appealing to young riders that have shown IEA or 4H with barn-owned horses. These riders will need to upgrade their NRHA membership from associate member to full youth membership (be sure to do this through NRHA before the show to avoid new rush fees). The horse must have an NRHA competition license and the owner (as listed on the competition license) must be a current member of NRHA. The youth cannot have earned more than 25 points in regular youth classes prior to January 1. Contact Amy Scott if you have additional questions at ScottA@btcs.org

TNRHA Chili Cook Off will be held Saturday night, March 28 in Harriman with all proceed benefitting the Terry Howell Youth Scholarship Fund. Judging at 6:00 pm and eating at 6:30! Contact Amy Scott to enter your favorite pot of chili  Scotta@btcs.org.

TNRHA Youth Silent Auction will take place during the March show.  Donations of tack, supplies, feed, lessons, training, apparel, gift certificates, farrier services, artwork, etc. are appreciated.

JK Ranch Supply has generously donated five $20 certificates to be awarded as door prizes at the May awards banquet. Thank you, Kathy! www.jkranchsupply.com

Your membership to TNRHA must be current in order for you to be eligible for year end awards.  Renewals or new membership may be paid in advance or at the first show.
