Para-Reining to Make Its Debut at AQHA World Championship Show

RELEASE: November 5, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: USEF Communications Department

Oklahoma City, Okla. – A new discipline will be on display at the 2013 AQHA World Championship Show: para-reining. USA Reining and the United States Para-Equestrian Association (USPEA) announced last month that along with the help of the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA), reining would be introduced as a discipline for para-equestrian athletes.

With the aim of making para-reining a fully recognized sport in 2014, a clinic and educational seminar will take place on Thursday, November 14 in Oklahoma City, Okla., followed by the first-ever para-reining demonstration class on Friday, November 15.

The USEF, USA Reining, and USPEA are striving to ensure para-reining rules and competitions are in line with events hosted at AQHA and NRHA shows. AQHA will integrate para-reining into its existing and thriving Equestrians with Disabilities Program, and NRHA will work to do the same with a newly launched disabled riders program. Over time, para-reining competitors will have a variety of competition options. 

The USEF, USA Reining, and USPEA will play a vital role in creating a pipeline to high-performance competition at the international level. A main goal of the effort is that para-reining athletes could one day earn a spot to represent the U.S. at international para-reining championships.
