RHSF Rookie Days presented by Classic EquineThe Reining Horse Sports Foundation offers a unique opportunity for beginning riders to receive training from local professionals, as well as compete with riders of their level in a mock competition. Participants spend the first half of the day being coached by local trainers and then compete in an all-rookie show in the afternoon. Rookie Day riders are critiqued and educated by NRHA Professionals to help improve their score in the show pen. RHSF encourages affiliates to host Rookie Days, which are presented by NRHA Corporate Partner Classic Equine, to help raise money for the Dale Wilkinson Memorial Crisis Fund.
The Dale Wilkinson Memorial Crisis Fund was established to assist NRHA members who have experienced catastrophe and demonstrate financial need.
In addition to furthering the Dale Wilkinson Memorial Crisis Fund, RHSF Rookie Days also benefit the hosting affiliate. Hosting an RHSF Rookie Day helps fulfill affiliate incentive requirements, as well as provides support money from NRHA for the affiliate. Classic Equine and Montana Silversmiths offer excellent award opportunities for Rookie Days. Affiliates interested in hosting an RHSF Rookie Day can reference the Affiliate Toolbox and the NRHA Affiliate department for more information.
