Updated March 2014

NRHA recently introduced the new Green Reiner Level I and II classes to make it easier for new reiners to get involved in the sport and participate in NRHA-approved shows. All it takes is an inexpensive $20 Associate Membership and your participation in a Green Reiner class at a show in your area, and you have an opportunity to win an award jacket and a Montana Silversmiths buckle from NRHA!

In the NRHA's Entry Level Program, you compete with other beginner riders. Your local reining horse clubs (in Montana and Wyoming these include YRHA, MRHA, NRRHA and CSRHA) offer NRHA Green Reiner classes for beginning riders at their shows.

Here’s some information to get you started.

The YRHA Green Rookie class has concluded. Riders new to showing are encouraged to participate in the NRHA Green Reiner 1 and 2 program. NRHA Green Reiner classes are offered at every YRHA show. The NRHA Green Reiner classes feature the option of doing a simple or flying lead change and graduation out of the class depends on points earned. NRHA keeps track of points and provides incentive awards to Green Reiners on graduation. Riders are required to have an inexpensive associate membership in NRHA to participate in the class.

Elise Donohue graduated from the YRHA Green Rookie class in 2005, earning her 1st buckle ever on her stallion, Shiners Chex Olena. Since then she has enjoyed giving back to the class that helped open a door for her into the world of reining. Elise has been generously sponsoring the Green Rookie buckles ever since. This is in addition to being a YRHA Diamond level sponosor. Thank you, Elise, for caring so much about these riders and the YRHA!

Green Rookie graduates come in all sizes, ages and walks of life. This year was a perfect example of the wide range of riders that have used this class as a stepping stone into the reining show pen. The 2008 YRHA Green Rookie class graduates were Doug Robinson and Quinn Sutherland.
