The National Reining Horse Association’s (NRHA) Buy A Pro Program officially opened for bidding on Jan. 15. Buy A Pro is an innovative online auction that connects riders with one-on-one lessons from NRHA Professionals, and replaces regional clinics as the primary funding mechanism for National Reining Horse Youth Association (NRHyA) activities.
Bidders will have the opportunity to bid on NRHA Buy A Pro training packages until March 1 at 12 p.m. (CST). Participants can bid and have a chance to win as many packages as they would like. In an effort to introduce more people to the sport of Reining, an NRHA membership is not required to bid.
There are currently 67 trainers participating in the NRHA Buy A Pro auction. Participating NRHA Professionals have donated packages consisting of two training sessions and one stall for the buyer’s horse to use during the training sessions. The packages will be auctioned, with proceeds helping provide scholarships and new opportunities for the NRHyA’s young reiners.
Winning bidders will have an exceptional opportunity to polish their reining skills or be introduced to a new hobby with some of the industry’s top professionals.
“It is fascinating to see NRHA Professionals actively involved in growing the sport of reining. Beginners and accomplished riders alike will benefit from attending one of these private training packages on location at a professional’s facility,” said Hayley Lewallen, who oversees the NRHyA and is the NRHA’s senior coordinator of marketing.
