NSBA Youth are looking for your art!

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.  Enrollment can occur at any time throughout the year.

 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.

Youth riders must have an 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.
