NRHA Moves Ahead with Medications Rule

RELEASE: July 17, 2011
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Christa Morris/NRHA

Oklahoma City, OK - The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Board of Directors voted to approve an Animal Welfare and Medications rule, including a multi-phase testing and research policy.

Due to the overwhelming response from the NRHA membership throughout a series of Town Talks, the Board agreed this course of action is in the best interest of the reining horse and the organization as a whole. The information gathered in the multi-phase research process will provide a solid foundation for the future.

“We had many discussions with the membership and received a tremendous amount of feedback. I believe this rule change and phase-in research program will meet the needs of a wide and diverse membership base. We addressed many domestic and internationals concerns and found a workable solution,” commented NRHA Vice-President Beth Himes.

NRHA President Allen Mitchels stated, “Making this decision is a big step forward in protecting the welfare of our horses. This process gives us a great opportunity to collect data specific to our sport and implement a program that is suitable for our industry. This policy, along with our Stewards Program, demonstrates our commitment to the well-being of our equine athletes.”

Incorporated in 1966, the National Reining Horse Association is the standard setting body of the sport of Reining. NRHA, with their International Headquarters in Oklahoma City, is responsible for promoting the sport of Reining and working to ensure the highest standards of competition.
