NRHA European Affiliate Championship moves to 2021
2020 NRHA European Affiliate Championships Canceled
The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) European Executive Board met to discuss the 2020 NRHA European Affiliate Championships in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. Due to governmental restrictions surrounding the pandemic, the European Affiliate Championships can’t be held in Denmark in July. Considering this fact, the safety of our members, and the unknown conclusion of the pandemic, the 2020 NRHA European Affiliate Championships are canceled.
Thanks to the camaraderie and collaboration of our affiliates and event teams, we’re happy to announce the 2021 European Affiliate Championships will be held in Denmark, hosted by NRHA’s Danish and Norwegian Affiliates. The 2022 and 2023 Championships will be held at CS Ranch in Switzerland. NRHA thanks our hosts for working together to make the best of the situation.
We’re thankful for all NRHA members and affiliates who have pulled together to make these decisions for the best welfare of our members and horses, and we know that we will come back stronger than ever for an exciting event in 2021.
2019 NRHA Affiliates European Champions
For Immediate Release – March 30, 2020 – Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the NRHA European Executive Board met to discuss qualification for the NRHA European Affiliate Championship, to be held this summer (6-11 July) in Regstrup, Denmark. The European Executive Board recommended altering the qualification system to make the event open to all European competitors. With so many shows canceling or postponing, the board felt many members would not have the ability to qualify and wanted to give them this opportunity. The European Council voted in favor of this idea. They agreed making this change would be the best solution for the members and in the best interest of event entries.
For the 2020 NRHA European Affiliate Championship, there will be no qualification restriction upon entry. All European members are welcome to enter the event.
