QUALIFYING FOR THE 2021 NSBA World Championship show HAS STARTED

Qualifying period for the 2021 NSBA World Championship Show is May 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021.

Qualifying is done through participation in each class at Dual Approved events or Special Events. In the Open classes, the horse, and in the Amateur and Youth classes, the horse and rider, will be required to participate in the corresponding Dual Approved class a minimum of 5 times within the qualifying period of May 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021 for the 2021 NSBA World Championship Show & Breeders Championship Futurity. Those who are not qualified may enter with an additional $150 qualification fee per class. First entry deadline is July 1, 2021. Entries received by July 15th, are accepted at the NSBA office with appropriate fees, and entries after July 16, 2021 are accepted at the show*. 

Please note that horses and riders who qualify, and are registered with one of NSBA's recognized Color Breed Associations, may show in both the Color and the All Breed classes, for which they are qualified. For instance, a registered APHA horse and rider who qualify in Amateur Western Pleasure, can show in Color Amateur Western Pleasure or Amateur Western Pleasure.  In addition, amateurs who are select riders, qualify in the Amateur division, and may show in either the Amateur or the Select class, but not both. Exhibitors who become amateurs in 2021 must qualify by competing in amateur classes; youth classes from the prior year do not count towards the amateur qualification. Participation on horses that age from the Junior to Senior divisions in 2021will count towards the Senior division qualification.
