The NBHA is open to all interested barrel racers, male and female of all ages. Professionals and beginners alike are given equal opportunity to win prize money and awards.NBHA CO-04 pays out the Open as a 4D (1/2, 1/2, full splits). Points in the Open are kept in this same manner. District 04 Youth and Senior are 3D (full second splits), but points are turned in with the same as the open which is a 1/2, 1/2, full to qualify for world shows, etc.
TOP 4 finishers in each division at year end in Open, Youth and Senior receive year end awards and World Show Qualifications. Saddles are awarded to the Open and Youth division champion if possible, buckles for second and other awards down through fourth place. Seniors will receive awards, but will be determined on participation. I will give awards to more places if we have enough money.
We have former National Finals Rodeo Qualifiers, Circuit Finals Qualifiers, NBHA National Champions, NBHA State Champions as well as beginners, young and old alike, in our District. We'd love to increase our membership with seasoned veterans or beginners. Come run with us!
