Memo from the Board of Directors Regarding the Arena Ground

We have been in discussion with employees at the Ilderton Fairgrounds regarding the footing that best suits the needs of the reined cow horse.  In the week leading up to our show, we will be working the ground to get the ground just as we want it.   We are confident that the footing will be great for our equine partners and hope that you will be joining us at the show!



NERCHA Mission Statement:

Our mission is to promote NRCHA horse shows in Ontario, educate the general membership through lectures, clinics, newsletters, meetings, and seminars, to promote reined cow horse among the youth and to provide special events for members.
