Don’t be Late, DESIGNATE! The deadline to designate with NRHA and

participate in the Affiliate Regional Champi- onships (ARC) is fast approaching. Don’t miss out on representing your affiliate, running for a re- gional award, winning awesome prizes and getting your invite to the Adequan® North American Af- filiate Championships (NAAC). All you need is to be a current ORHA member in good standing; a current NRHA member in good standing; have designated to the ORHA and compete in an NRHA affiliate class (listed below).

What is the Affiliate Championship Program? The affiliate championship program was created by the NRHA to promote and

develop reining at the grassroots level. A number of the ORHA sanctioned shows are affiliate qualifiers shows; including Spring Thaw, Pickering Slide, Waterford Slide and Spirit of Excellence Challenge. Members, who have designated, earn affiliate points competing in the NRHA affiliate classes (listed below). The top 15 horse and rider combinations, plus ties, from each affiliate class qualify to compete in the Eastern Canada - Affiliate Regional Championships (ARC), which this year will be hosted by Association Québécoise de Reining (AQR) and held on September 6-9 in Sorel- Tracy Quebec. The top ten (10) horse and rider combinations, plus ties, from each class at each Affiliate Regional Championships qualify for the Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships (NAAC).

Affiliate classes are: − Open

− Intermediate Open − Limited Open

− Rookie Professional − Novice Horse Open 1 − Novice Horse Open 2 − Youth 13 & Under − Rookie 1 − Rookie 2

− Non Pro

− Intermediate Non Pro − Limited Non Pro

− Prime Time Non Pro − Novice Horse Non Pro 1 − Novice Horse Non Pro 2 − Youth 14-18

− NRHA Short Stirrup

How do I designate? In order to qualify for the Affiliate Regional Championships (ARC) exhibitors

must have completed the Affiliate Designation Form and submitted it to NRHA no later than August 1st. This form is available both on the ORHA website and the NRHA web- site. Once a designation is registered, it will apply from year to year, so you do not have the designate each year, unless you wish to change the affiliate you are designate to. Changes must be sent in writing to the NRHA Affiliate Department and meet the August 1st deadline. Exhibitors must be a current member of the designated affiliate.
