history

Central Ohio Reining Horse Association celebrated its 25th Year in 2013!

CORHA is a nonprofit association dedicated to promoting and encouraging development of and public interest in the sport of reining. The focus is on developing and maintaining suitable standards of performance and judging and in providing a fun-filled, family-oriented atmosphere.

In 1988, five people: Bud Vaughn, Jack Hootman, Ron Frey, and Randy & Mary Straka came together to form Central Ohio Reining Horse Association. Thinking outside the box and wanting to expand the reach of the sport, CORHA developed the Green Reiner program that is used today at so many of the Affiliate level shows to introduce Reining to newcomers.

From the humble beginnings of only five enthusiasts, Central Ohio Reining Horse Association now sports over 150 members and growing! CORHA is not only active in the show arena with 8-10 show dates per year, but also on the International Level with hosting th FEI Young Rider’s Qualifiers and NRHA Judge Applicant Seminars.
