The Bobbie Parsons Memorial Sportsmanship Award,
Bobbie Parsons ... a new addition to the TNRHA Green Reiner 1 category in 2015, beginning with this weekend's show. There will be a meeting at 7:30 pm on Friday, March 27th for all Green 1 reiners to kick off this award. The location will be announced throughout the day on Friday.
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. At 70 years old, Bobbie Parsons was a Green Reiner and accumulated 31 points toward winning her Green Reiner buckle. Her dream was cut short due to her bout with cancer. Her family and friends would like to honor her memory in a way that promotes the sportsmanship and qualities in a competitor that she so gracefully represented. This special award will go to the year’s most outstanding Green 1 sportsman as deemed by their fellow competitors, specifically one who is friendly, helpful, supportive, and courteous. Thank you Vicky Edgemon, Janet Rogers, and Jim Parsons, Jock and Jan Herning, Greg Williams and Rhonda Johnson for sponsoring this wonderful award! The rules are as follows: * TNRHA Green 1 Reiners will vote on the person they think represents the desired qualities at the end of every horse show. * Each eligible competitor will have one vote per show and you cannot vote for yourself. * You must show in at least 3 shows for the year to be eligible. * The person with the most votes at the end of the year will win a beautiful buckle to be presented at the TNRHA annual awards banquet.

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

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
