The Prince George Reining Horse Assocation is pleased to be distributing our third edition of the PGHRA digital Newsletter. We will be distributing this digital newletter once a month in an effort to keep our reining community in the loop on the many activities that the PGRHA is undertaking to advance reining in both our Northern Region and Province.

In February at the PGRHA Board of Directors Meeting, a lot of dicussion surrounded the PGRHA show that we will be hosting in August 2018.    A large piece of the conversation surrounded the steady decline of reining shows and competitors in BC and specifically Northern BC and the fact that the PGRHA is hosting the one remaining NRHA Sanctioned show in the North.  Throughout these discussions, we were very pleased to have representation and input by Reiners from Smithers, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Quesnel in addition to our local PGRHA members.   Being the only reining show remaining in Northern BC, there is a definite desire of the full region  to collaborate collectively in both the fundraising, sponsorship and marketing of the 2018 Ride and Slide to ensure that this show can continue to be hosted in years to come. 

In response to these discussion the following decisions have been made;
  1. That the August 2018 Reining Show will be named the "Northern BC Ride &  Slide"
  2. That the Sponsorship Campaign/Package will be redone to reflect the "Northern BC Ride & Slide" so to expand the opportunities to access sponsorship in communities outside of the Prince George area
  3. That the PGRHA will now operate under the following new website address    www.northernbcreining.com
The PGRHA would like to thank our out of area Northern Reiners from Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Quesnel,  Smithers and our local Prince George area for making time to discuss the future of the August Reining Show and bring forward their ideas that will support this show being sustainable.

NORTHERN BC REINERS 2018 ROAD TRIPS
The PGRHA currently has a contingent of our Northern Reiners that are planning to make the trip to Chilliwack to compete in both the Slide Out  West and the West Coast Classic.   This year we are hoping and encouraging our Northern BC Reiners to travel as a collective and stable as a collective at these shows.   The PGRHA will be setting up a "Northern BC Ride and Slide" promotional table at this event that will have our show  programs and complimentary  snacks and refreshments.

We are thinking this would be a really great way to generate some networking and fun and will also show the Northern support  for these shows.    In the next while we will be selling "Northern BC Ride and Slide" stall curtains, stall bags, etc.. that Northern Reiners can purchase to utilize to support the branding of our Northern BC stall alley while helping us promote the "Northern BC Ride and Slide". 

WCRA MAINLAND SHOWS FOR 2018

Slide Out West - June 15th - 17th, 2018
West Coast Classic  - July 13th - 15th, 2018
