NRHA Releases Judging Fundamentals Tape

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – When the National Reining Horse Association began shipping its new Judging Reining Horse Fundamentals Video set in early May, the educational video was immediately hailed as a tremendous working tool for the reining industry.

According to NRHA Judges Committee Chairman Ollie Griffith, the two videos, which explain the basis for the association’s celebrated judging system, are a great learning tool. He explains, “If you’re interested in becoming a judge or would just like to better understand how judges evaluate what they see in the show ring, these tapes will help you. Judging Reining Horse Fundamentals exemplifies a cornerstone of our industry to allow each exhibitor the opportunity to score based on maneuver evaluation and penalty application.”

Griffith credited NRHA Director of Judges Allen Mitchels and NRHA Staff Liaison Shane Schutte for their efforts in producing the video set, as well as the members of the NRHA Judges Committee.

The video set is available by mail order from the National Reining Horse Association office at $59.95 plus shipping.
