NRHA Members & Supporters — Livestock Supply Donations are being accepted for those affected by the recent wildfires.
In the heart of horse country, NRHA and the Reining Horse Foundation are asking for donations of livestock supplies (hay, feed, wound supplies, fencing, etc.) to assist Oklahoma and Texas ranchers impacted by the recent fires. We are offering to connect those in the horse industry with those who are in need through a series of drop-off locations.
Donation Locations for Hay, Feed, Wound Supplies, Fencing Supplies
- NRHA Office – 3021 W. Reno, Oklahoma City 73107 – 405-946-7400 – Drop off on-site, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. M-F. To help keep a sustained effort beyond the initial response, the NRHA Office plans to take donations until further notice, and coordinate delivery to those most-in need.
- Oklahoma Reining Horse Association Ride & Slide – Tulsa Expo Square – Through Sunday, March 12 at Noon. Visit the OkRHA show office for instructions for drop-off.
- Southwest Reined Cow Horse Spring Into Spring Horse Show – Lazy E Arena, 9600 Lazy E Drive, Guthrie, OK 73044 – Through Sunday, March 12 at Noon. Drop donations in Stall 110. Stop by Stall Office for questions.
