National Reining Horse Association Derby Slides into Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City welcomes the National Reining Horse Association Derby Show 2013 to the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds this week, June 22nd through June 29th. With more than $650,000 in estimated added money, the NRHA Derby runs for one week each summer in Oklahoma City and showcases the world's best four-, five- and six-year-old reining horses. Thousands of spectators, exhibitors and horses attend the event each year.

The Derby is one of two major events presented by NRHA each year in Oklahoma City and includes two full slates of ancillary reining classes in addition to the aged-event action. The NRHA Derby also hosts the Interscholastic Equestrian Association Western National Finals, United States Equestrian Federation classes and Federation Equestre Internationale classes.

Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Reese had a moment to visit with staff and exhibitors at the Derby this morning and also had the opportunity to "Ride A Reiner". Professional Horseman, Shane Brown, of Shane Brown Performance Horses in Elbert, CO brought out one of his seasoned horses to let the Secretary take a spin. Shane's gelding "Hollywood and Fine" who goes by the barn name of "Woody" is a seasoned pro who helps show those new to the sport the ins and outs of reining competition.   

The NRHA encourages opportunities for those who are unfamiliar with the sport to have a chance to interact with both horses and exhibitors. The NRHA has a variety of exhibitors from youth 13 & under and novice up to non-pro and professional divisions. The 2013 Derby will have events ongoing throughout the day at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds through Saturday and a detailed schedule can be found at http://nrhaderby.com/
