Why choose us

Ready for a life time experience you’ll never forget? Join NBHA SOUTH AFRICA — we share a passion and love for our equine friends and Barrel Racing. We have joined forces with the official NBHA in the U.S, which are affiliated in 12 countries, to build and promote Barrel Racing as a sport in South Africa.

Together we can build NBHA SA and provide our best riders with an opportunity to compete in the NBHA world championships.  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.

Divisional barrel racing, using the 4D format, is the heart of NBHA. Divisional barrel racing gives ALL competitors – from beginners to professionals, from youth to seniors – a chance to compete, learn and succeed in barrel racing.  The Divisional format encourages riders to improve their skills and work toward the higher Divisions, while still having a chance to be competitive.

The ultimate goal of NBHA competition is to qualify for the prestigious NBHA World Championships:  The Youth & Teen World Championships, held the last week of July, and the Open & Senior World Championships are held in October annually.

NBHA SA will produce two National shows, Western Cape and Gauteng/Freestate Region.  We are busy looking at sponsors to provide members with benefits and help grow this new initiative in South Africa.  We will also introduce clinics throughout the year to help riders train and ride their horses professionally, become better and in turn put South Africa on the map!

Whether you’re an experienced rodeo rider, a top trainer, a weekend jackpot competitor or a beginning barrel racer, NBHA is right for you!  Visit our FAQ page to learn more about the organization that is #1 in Barrel Racing.
