Washington Reining Horse Association kicks off the 2014 show season with the Spring Fling and Derby sponsored by Sky River Equestrian Center April 10 -13 at the Appleatchee Riding Club in Wenatchee.

The show will start on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. which will provide a full day of showing instead of half a day on Friday. Ribbons to 5 places in addition to class awards to 3 places will be awarded in WRHA Beginner Rider, all youth classes, all rookie classes, NRHA Open Derby & Non-Pro Derby. Also new for 2014 will be circuit awards in NRHA Non-Pro, NRHA Limited Non-Pro, WRHA Beginner Rider, NRHA Youth 13 & Under, NRHA Youth 14 – 18, and NRHA Arab/Part Arab non-pro classes.
