Who Can Join?

The NBHA is for ALL barrel racers, from beginners to experts. So whether you’re a local weekend competitor or a professional trainer, this is the association for you.


How Can Beginners Compete with Pros?

NBHA CANADA uses a four division (4D) format. This makes it possible for the beginner, intermediate and advanced barrel racer to compete in the same event. Meaning, there are 4 different sets of winners within the event. There are three NBHA CANADA 4D classes: the Youth 4D (18 and under), the Open 4D (for every age group), and the Senior 4D (for competitors 50 yrs and up).
