About NBHA
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.

NBHA has over 23,000 members of all ages across the United States and affiliates in five countries: Canada, Italy, France, Panama and the Netherlands. Find out more about barrel racing's international presence at NBHA.com/ibhf.

NBHA official home office events to date have paid out $8,038,985.00. Added money is approaching $2 million.

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.  To learn more about how Divisional format barrel racing works, visit our Frequently Asked Questions.

NBHA Members compete at District, State, National and World Championship levels.  Each state is divided into competition Districts where members compete for money and prizes at a local level.  Discover which one of the NBHA's more than 300 Districts you can compete in at www.nbha.com/overview/comp_dist.shtml.

Most states hold State Championship Shows; find out if your state does at http://nbha.com/shows/state/.  The NBHA National Office currently produces seven National Shows annually throughout the country.  Check out our National Shows page for dates and locations.

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

NBHA enjoys sponsorship from several companies that offer special programs - Incentives, discounts, merchandise and more - to NBHA Members.  Visit the National Partners page and the Show Sponsors page to find out what benefits NBHA Members receive from NBHA's sponsors.

Whether you're an experienced rodeo rider, a top futurity 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!
