    Please note that in order to qualify for year end standings you must volunteer with North Branch for at least 3 hours over the show season. We always need people to help with gates, prize handouts, scribing, etc. At least half of these 3 hours must be complete in the first 4 shows. Volunteer hours are required by Reining Alberta. Any volunteerism via Reining Alberta Main Branch will qualify for North Branch vounteer hours. 

North Branch can always use more volunteers, so if you have some spare time and are interested in getting involved please contact Patty Barnas at

Here you will find all the forms that you will need for the year. Please note that the entry form for the shows reflects the order of go for the day.

A new class has been added this year – Green As Grass Reiner. This class has been formed with the intention to foster a supportive, open and low stress class for those who are wanting to get their feet wet in the sport of reining. If you should have any quesitons or concerns, please shoot one of us an email or phone us and we will be hapy to help you out with any questions.
