IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to an error on our part, last year's (2015) list of Open and Senior World Qualifiers was published in Barrel Horse News. If you received a World Qualifier postcard, you are qualified for the slots listed on the postcard. If you have any questions, you may call our office at 706-722-7223. We apologize for the error and for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused. The full list of qualifiers may be viewed here.
The purpose of the National Barrel Horse Association is to provide Barrel Racers with an international organization that will promote the sport of barrel racing and its growth.
Our goals are to increase the number of participants, improve the quality of shows and enhance the image of barrel racing.
These rules have been adopted to address the needs of NBHA members, promote fairness, eliminate confusion, and assist show organizers.
These Rules cannot cover all possible situations that may arise during a show, nor can they regulate all administrative questions. Where cases are not precisely regulated by a Rule, it should be possible to reach a reasonable decision by looking at the Rule book and the Director's Handbook. The Rules assume that NBHA Directors, Show Management and Headquarters staff have the necessary competence, sound judgment and absolute objectivity. Too detailed a rule might deprive the official of his/her freedom of judgment and thus prevent him/her from finding the solution to a problem dictated by fairness, logic and special factors.
