WHAT YOU CAN DO
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.
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.Purchase Membership
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. If ownership changes, a transfer is required.
