We offer education and competitive levels for all. There are multiple divisions of competition offered at shows to enable competitors at all levels to participate, learn, and improve as they master the intricacies of one of the most exciting equine competition events. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned competitor, we have something to offer.
We are a not for profit association, which was started in 2001 by a small group of individuals with a dream, and an astounding love for horses, Reining horses that is. Over the last few years, our Association has grown not only in membership (>200), but also in the number and quality of our horse shows, which pull Reiners from all over the Northeast, East coast the Mid-west and Canada.
Established in 2001, the Central New York Reining Horse Association (CNYRHA), based in Syracuse, NY, is a not-for-profit affiliate of the NRHA. Our mission is simply to promote and encourage the development of, and public interest in, the sport of reining in Central New York.
In 2023 we will host four reining horse shows. Our premier events include the CNYRHA Derby (for 4, 5 and 6-year-old horses) held in June, and the Northeast Breeders Trust Futurity (for 3-year-old horses) held in October. Both exhilarating events allow contestants to compete for significant purse money, trophies and prizes.
