NBHA Canada 2018 Finals Recap

Wow!!! We aren't sure about all our members out there but we had a great weekend at the NBHA Canada Finals at the REACH Centre in Clinton! It was so great to see over 200 members make some outstanding runs and beat their personal bests!  Our finals was a huge success and our biggest event yet. 

We paid out over $35,000, had record numbers and gave out $20,000 in awards and prizes. These prizes include 57 Buckles, 8 trophy saddles, custom halters and spur straps and many other beautiful awards. None of this would be possible without our members support and commitment to this organization. A special thank you to all those that helped make this weekend possible: district directors, office staff, tractor drivers, gate man, barrel setters, announcers, high school rodeo food booth, love my paws photography, all those behind the scene and most of all, our members.
