NSBA YOUTH #DOINGGOODINTHENEIGHBORHOOD!

Ride into the Future
Smart Points

NSBA rewards youth members for their participation in NSBA programs and encourages them to become lifelong learners through the Smart Points program. Youth rider may apply by paying a one-time fee of $25 and completing the enrollment form. Enrollment can occur at any time throughout the year.

Youth riders must have a NSBA membership, enroll in the Smart Points program and either ride a NSBA Stallion Incentive Fund (SIF) Licensed horse or register their horse into the Smart Points program in order to earn Smart Points money. The name on the Smart Points enrollment and NSBA membership must be exactly the same. Each NSBA point that the youth rider earns in a Dual Approved or other designated youth class will earn a money value, including Novice youth and walk-trot classes. 

NSBA Smart Points also sponsors the National Youth Activity Team Tournament (NYATT) at the All American Quarter Horse Congress, the Youth Team Tournament at the APHA Youth World Show. This sponsorship allows the youth to enter and earn NSBA points towards the Smart Points program as well as year-end awards.
