WHAT YOU CAN DO

About Us

The National Snaffle Bit Association is a community of equine owners, exhibitors, breeders and future leaders of our industry. We are an international association representing multiple breeds. The welfare of the horse is the primary consideration. Our mission is to serve as a steward for the horse, and ensure responsible care and treatment through kindness, respect and compassion. Following this mission, NSBA continues to define standard rules for judging and competitive events.

Membership

An NSBA membership is required for each owner and exhibitor entering in NSBA classes. It is the sole responsibility of the owner/exhibitor to be a current member. If a registered owner consists of two or more people, or a company or partnership name, then it is required that a membership be recorded in the exact name of the registration papers.

Horse Registration

NSBA horse registration is required in order to compete. Horse registration is a one time fee of $35. The owner must have a current NSBA membership.
Horses may register with NSBA with breed registration papers or microchip registration. Horses with neither must follow the directions under unregistered. If ownership changes, a transfer is required.

Handbook

The official 2021 NSBA Handbook will be available in December and will include the rules that apply specifically to the hunter jumper events of NSBA. The 2020 NSBA Handbook is available on the website here. For rules specific to hunter jumper special events click here. All NSBA rules prevail in NSBA stand alone special events.

Show Approval

NSBA sanctions horse shows providing the governance, point system and structure required by event producers to host first class events. NSBA sanctions shows for breed organizations as well as special events, those shows not affiliated with any one breed organization. By promoting the use of standard set of rules for judging and holding events NSBA promotes activities that benefit horses, breeders, owners and exhibitors alike.
