Our objectives:
To promote and encourage development of public interest in agriculture and ranching through the promotion of public Reining Horse Shows; the development of suitable and proper standards of performance and judging intended to govern all Reining Horse Contests sponsored and approved by the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA); to encourage the development and breeding of better Reining Horses; and to develop and disseminate informational material deemed desirable to provide contestants and spectators a better understanding of a proper performance of the Reining Horse in the show arena.

Description of a Reining Horse: A reining horse may be of any breed, size, shape or color (a legal size horse). To rein a horse is not only to guide him, but also to control his every movement. The best reined horse should be willingly guided or controlled with little or no apparent resistance and dictated to completely.

CSRHA Purpose Statement: To promote and encourage interest and participation in the sport of reining through informational clinics and public reining horse shows . Our shows will adhere to the standards of performance and judging as set down by the National Reining Horse Association.
