The National Barrel Horse Association (NBHA) of Australia is a group built on the Divisional Barrel Racing concept that has been based in South East Queensland since 2008. Our group is a non-profit association working as volunteers to get the most benefits we can for our members. As we are fully affiliated, our events are run to an international standard complying with the International Barrel Horse Federation (IBHF) rules. Under IBHF rules, Districts are set up to ensure competition is fair for every member and the boundaries are set to deter a travel distance hardship for them.
There is currently 11 NBHA Districts across Australia.
The 4D concept revolutionised the barrel racing industry by pioneering the divisional format. This allows riders of all skill levels a chance to win money and prizes in barrel racing competition. For information on the 4D concept and the birth of NBHA, please go to www.nbha.com
NBHA is the largest barrel racing organisation in the world and each year competitors are given the chance to qualify as a champion to represent their country at the NBHA World Championships held in Perry, Georgia (USA).
