Green Reiner Class

Riders can choose to ride with one or two hands and can choose to perform either simple or flying lead changes.

  • Green Reiner 1 – Open to riders with less than $100 in NRHA earnings excluding Green Reiner classes, less than 25 NRHA Youth Points and less than 50 Green Reiner points
  • Green Reiner 2 – Open to riders with less than $100 in NRHA earnings excluding Green Reiner classes, less than 25 NRHA Youth Points and less than 100 Green Reiner points

Green Reiner points are awarded based on the number of horses in the class on a sliding scale from 1 to 10 points. The point scale can be found in the NRHA Handbook. After achieving 100 points, the rider is no longer eligible to compete in Green Reiner classes as of the next year. Eligibility is set Jan. 1.
