Circuit Information

The Intermountain Reined Cow Horse Circuit was established in the early 1990’s in the Intermountain area of the Northwest. It is a unique and very successful alliance of reined cow horse associations - all NRCHA affiliates.

The vision of the Circuit's founders continues today: to promote awareness and involvement in breeding, training and showing reined cow horses; to provide an area-wide recognition and awards program; and to support regional cow horse shows.

These goals continue to form the framework for the Intermountain Circuit.

Responsive to area needs, based on input from show reps, riders and trainers, the Circuit Class List features NRCHA classes, plus a few additions. A commitment to added money by each approved event has also made the Circuit a very lucrative series for owners and riders.

The Annual Meeting of the Intermountain Circuit is held in January or February of each year, prior to the Awards Banquet. Representatives from approved shows, and interested riders, owners and trainers are welcome to attend to discuss classes, show approvals, dates, clinics, awards, regional and national news, conduct elections, and carry out other business. All horsemen are welcome and encouraged to attend.

All horses entered in Circuit-approved classes at Circuit-approved shows are automatically tracked for Circuit points. There are no Circuit membership dues!

Shows interested in Circuit approval should review the material here, and call with any additional questions.

Approved events are horse shows, which may also offer derbies and/or futurities. Please see the Show Approvals section for guidelines on classes, added money and Circuit fees.

To be eligible for Circuit awards the horse must be shown in the class a minimum number of times, with points counting from all approved shows.
