Promoting reined cow horse equine sports in Northern California.

The Northern California Reined Cow Horse Association (NCRCHA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2000 in Red Bluff, California.

Our mission is to help promote the reined cow horse equine sport by providing members a place to show horses in herd work, reined work, fence work & boxing classes along with participating in educational seminars & riding clinics the association provides.

The NCRCHA encourages membership participation & fun. If you haven’t shown with us, check out what we have to offer in the range of classes & awards — everything from pros to beginners at an affordable price and with fun!

President's Note

What a way to start 2024! Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and came out to show. Your support and generosity are greatly appreciated. Congratulations to all of those of you that won year end awards. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed giving them out.

Dinner for the awards banquet was provided by Wade Grimsman, cattle handler and cook extraordinaire and he knocked it out of the park. I can’t decide what was more delicious – the tri-tip or the chili beans.

Have you met Brit Grimsman? Brit is our show manager, assistant cook, chief bottle washer and wife to Wade, mom to Kate, cattle handler, footing evaluator, along with about a dozen other hats that she wears. She has a work ethic like no other and does it with grace and kindness. She shows up prepared, professional and with a smile. When you see her – make sure and let her know how much we appreciate her dedication to making NCRCHA shows the best they can be.

I can’t wait for longer days, warmer weather, visits with good friends and to watch fine horses! Don’t forget to put us on your show calendar. We have some big things in the works for our June 1 & 2 show.

Horse Show = The gathering of like-minded equine exhibitors and enthusiasts who travel great distances despite obstacles and odds to spend hours with people and horses they love!

Hope to see you in JUNE!
