 Our next race is this Saturday Aug 22nd Montrose, Co Fairgrounds.

Due to schools being back in session and many people having had to adjust schedules this week and in the past few weeks. The office will open at 9:00 instead of 8:00.

Office opens @ 9:00

Exhibitions @ 10:00-11:00  

Open Riding 11:00-11:20 (then we will close and work the arena)

Peewee/Novice @ 11:45

Open Sr. Yth to follow.

We look forward to seeing you in Montrose.

Also we have spoken to the state vet. There advice is fly spray, fly sheets, and masks. They said there was no reason to stop hauling to our races at this time as the flys are everywhere and they could get the virus in your own yard.

Spray your horses, don't let them eat off the ground at the arena's, or share water bucket's. We will not be out the danger zone till it freezes.

 Also don't forget to buy your tickets and get some to sell for the beautiful table we have for our awards program. Winner will be announced at the finals. Tickets are $5.00 The more we sell the more for awards :-)  We want to Thank Bill Shaefer for making the beautiful table for NBHA-4.

Thank you,

Linda & Carissa



 Thank you to all our great members and staff that helps us put on great races!

Lord, I might seem so little
Sitting up here all alone
Astride the mountain of a horse
You made of muscle, of bone.
But, together we're a team, Lord
With one goal in mind,
To make it around the cloverleaf
In record breaking time.
Please, keep my horse surefooted,
Let me hang on to my quirt.
Racing around those barrels
With one stirrup in the dirt.
As we make that last runaround
And we quickly race for home.
Win or lose, record or not,
With you we're never alone.
I thank You for being there,
Keeping my horse and me safe
And Lord, with your divine help,
We will compete in our next race

Please welcome Linda Tibbitts as our new NBHA-4 Director!

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!
