About Us

The National Barrel Horse Association, headquartered in Augusta, Georgia, is the largest barrel racing organization in the world. In 1992, the NBHA revolutionized the barrel racing industry by pioneering the divisional format, which allows riders of all skill levels a chance to win money and prizes in barrel racing competition.

NBHA has over 23,000 members of all ages across the United States and affiliates in six countries: Canada, Brazil, Italy, France, Panama, and Australia. Currently NBHA payouts are steady at about $4 million a year!!!

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.

Our rules have been adopted to address the needs of NBHA members, promote fairness, eliminate confusion, and assist show organizers.
