Attention OBBO Futurities & OBBO Graduate Derby Participants,
We have had numerous requests to look into OBBO Graduate Derby rules. The OBBO committee has decided to alter the rules to allow more horses to become eligible.
The OBBO committee has been reviewing the rules for the OBBO Graduate Derby. As it stands, right now your horse(s) has to have shown in the Two Year Old Reining Pleasure and the Three Year Old Reining Futurity to be eligible for the OBBO Graduate Derby.
To date 28 horses are eligible.
*1* CHANGED RULES – will aloud starting 2015 Show: Your horse(s) would have to have shown in one of these classes to be eligible; Two Year Old Reining Pleasure or the Three Year Old Reining Futurity. Horses that are eligible to show in the OBBO Graduate Derby will receive an OBBO certificate and will be posted on the eligibility list on the OBBO website and at the OBBO Futurity Show office. Under the NEW rules there will be 80 horses now eligible for the OBBO Graduate Derby. If you no longer own the horse(s) on the OBBO certificate please let the new owners know.
*2* NEW RULES CHANGE – on ORHA membership; Starting the 2015 show season owner and rider must have an ORHA membership to show their horse(s) in the Three Year Old Reining Futurity and OBBO Graduate Derby.
Membership for the Two Year Old Reining Pleasure class as follows: If you are only showing in the Two Year Old Reining Pleasure and no other classes of the ORHA or the NRHA, owner and ride will need an OBBO Associate membership. This membership form is on the ORHA & OBBO website. The OBBO committee and the ORHA Board are working together to promote reining in Ontario and now are under the ORHA Insurance Policy. Under the ORHA Insurance policy you will need to be member to show in these classes. NRHA membership and a Competition Licence for your horse(s) is also required for the OBBO Three Year Old Futurity and OBBO Graduate Derby. When time to show your horse(s) the OBBO will need a copy of all your memberships.
*3* NEW RULES CHANGE – Starting September 2015 – Please note that HST will apply to your OBBO Show Bill.
