2021 NBHA World Qualifier List

After extensive discussion and consideration, the NBHA modified its qualification requirements for the NBHA 2021 Youth & Teen World Championships and the NBHA 2021 Open & Senior World Championships. The decision was made due to the number of COVID-related event postponements and cancellations in the 2020 season. We understand that we’re operating in unprecedented times and members across the country have not had the opportunity to fully participant in NBHA events.

These changes will allow a NBHA qualifier to enter a maximum of five horses to a 2021 World Championship Show. For example a qualifier may enter five horses in the Open, or 3 Open and 2 Senior Division horses etc. A qualifier may enter 5 horses in the Youth or Teen, if eligible by age.
