Intermountain Circuit Annual Meeting News

Thanks to all the riders and owners who attended the 2013 Annual meeting and provided useful ideas!

Your 2013 Intermountain Circuit president is Jay Meyers. John Palleria is vice president. Please welcome Pam Smith as the new Circuit secretary! Pam replaces Sarah Skaar, who has stepped down after 15 years in the post.

The Circuit has added three classes for 2013: the Intermediate Non Pro Bridle, 5K Non Pro Limited and Non Pro Limited Derby.

Note: The Intermediate Non Pro Bridle is a provisional class for the circuit - meaning 2013 will be a year to evaluate the level of entries. Awards for the class will be funded by the fees generated by the class and it will be reviewed at the 2014 meeting.

NRCHA - It's a great time for newcomers to join NRCHA - they are offering a one year free membership to those joining for the first time. Also check out the NRCHA website for details on the exciting new "Shoot out" format for non pros and boxing entries. This is a fun progressive format based on fence work by which the top group qualifying at major events become eligible for a high dollar finals at Reno.

Seven shows have been approved for the 2013 Circuit with two possible additions. Check the calendar page and watch for an update on the schedule - which should be finalized soon. The number of approved shows determines the minimum number of shows to qualify for awards, so we'll also post this info as soon as possible.

Several clinics are coming up:

  • March ??? - Utah RCHA Justin Lawrence Clinic, Date/Location TBA
  • May 11-12 - Idaho RCHA Triple Threat Clinic, King Hill
  • June ??? - Idaho RCHA Youth Clinic, Date/Location TBA
  • June 29-30 - Magic Valley RCHA Jake Telford Clinic, Location TBA

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.
