NATIONAL BARREL HORSE ASSOCIATION #1 in Barrel Racing Australia
WELCOME TO NBHA AUSTRALIA
"The National Barrel Horse Association" is the largest barrel racing oganisation in the world. With over 24,000 members of all ages across the United States and affiliates in twelve countries; Canada, Italy, France, Panama, The Netherlands , Brazil, China, Hungary, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland and now Australia, the sport originally developed for women is getting bigger and better.
The NBHA AUSTRALIA QUEENSLAND District's 2,3,4 and 6 in Australia is part of the largest barrel racing organisation in the world. In 2014, NBHA Queensland affiliated with the NBHA IBHF (International Barrel Horse Federation) to introduce 4 Divisional Barrel Racing to Australia. The 4D concept revolutionised the barrel racing industry by pioneering the divisional format, which allows riders of all skill levels a chance to win money and prizes in barrel racing competition. Now - across the world, (including Australia) men, women and children are all enjoying the sport and riders of all levels are able to win money and prizes.
Divisional barrel racing, using the 4D format, is the heart of NBHA. Divisional barrel racing gives ALL competitors - from beginners to professionals, from youth to seniors - a chance to compete, learn and succeed in barrel racing. The Divisional format encourages riders to improve their skills and work toward the higher Divisions, while still having a chance to be competitive.
NBHA is thankful to the sponsorship that comes from several companies that offer special programs - Incentives, discounts, merchandise and more - to NBHA members.
Whether you're an experienced rodeo rider, a top futurity trainer, a weekend jackpot competitor or a beginner barrel racer, NBHA is right for YOU!
NBHA is looking to go Australia Wide, under IBHF Rules, so if you know of a great arena that can hold barrel races in your area please let us know. Being associated with NBHA In Australia and us being affiliated with NBHA America just opens up a world of opportunities for us barrel racers.....
