Hey NBHA TX 26 family and friends, its Tasha and Les, we wanted to give everyone a heads up about the final 2 shows and the awards banquet. The final 2 shows will be held November 8th and 9th 2014 at Barney Wiggins Arena, Livingston, TX. Books open at 9:00 am both days with a reverse order being run on the 9th (barrel exhibitions, pole exhibitions, open poles, youth poles, future champs, youth, teen, adult, senior, and novice barrels, then the open barrels). Hopefully this will help with the youth being able to leave early for school preparations. This will be and added money show with $250.00 added to the open barrels both days for a total of $500.00. Everyone is invited to the Finials show member and non-members the more the merrier. We will have the saddle maker available at the show to fit everyone for saddles. If you are placing in the top 5 in any class D please be sure to get fitted in case you win a saddle we will know the size. We will still be honoring the “Your Entries are Paid” program at this show. If you have worked more than 25 points or brought in sponsorships over $500 you will receive a free entry for one class and one horse for both show days.
Year End Awards
All awards will be given away at the awards banquet on January 24, 2015 at Bull Sallas Park in New Caney, TX. The location was chosen due to the numerous trips it will take us to get all awards there as well as the banquet room that comes at no additional charge with the arena rental. Although we had hoped to give everything out the last two shows and continue the tradition of a finals weekend we are unable to due to the NBHA National rule enforcement the last two shows must count towards the year end points, world points and year end awards. Furthermore, this allows us to order your award saddles to fit you not just a standard size as well as add any additional award placing if funds allow. We will have an Open Jackpot Race with side pots before the banquet. Books will open at 9:00 am, exhibitions 9:30 till 12:30, open will start at 1:00 pm. All awards will be given after the race.
Year End Award Eligibility
Please be sure to double check the awards matrix to make sure that you have met the work point and sponsorship requirements for the year. All points and sponsorships must be paid by November 9.

We will still be hosting shows with the possibility of NBHA co-sanction for those who want to earn world points or meet state show requirements.
