Thanks to the Givers

Column by Tim Anderson, RHF President

This is the second year NRHA Professionals have the choice to donate to the Reining Horse Foundation (RHF) when they complete their membership renewal. In 2020, the first year for this option, the group raised $6,000 for the RHF’s Dale Wilkinson Memorial Crisis Fund.

NRHA Professionals are an important part of RHF fundraising and have been for years. They have instructed at Reining Boot Camps, which are mini clinics for NRHA members and potential members that also help provide financial support for the crisis fund.

In 2019, the NRHA Professionals introduced dummy roping fundraisers, which launched an enormous amount of fun. Last year, dummy ropings were on hold because of social distancing requirements, but I would be remiss if I didn’t thank show manager Cheryl Cody for her great support helping our pros organize the Reiners Rope dummy roping at the 2019 NRHA Derby. Cheryl has be instrumental in other Foundation fundraising, as well.
