NRHA Affiliates


The affiliate championship program was created by the NRHA to promote and develop reining at the grassroots level. Many of the ORHA shows are affiliate qualifiers shows (see the ORHA Calendar of Events to determine which ones), at which members earn affiliate points. After the last affiliate qualifiers show, the top 10 horse and rider combinations, plus ties, from each affiliate class qualify to compete in the Eastern Canada – Regional Affiliate Finals (RAF). The ORHA is honoured to host the 2014 Eastern Canada Regional Affiliate Finals. The top 10 of each RAF class are eligible for the North American Affiliate Finals (NAAF) in OKC.
