Peaster junior to compete in NRHA championships in OKC

National Reining Horse Association member Whitney Conrad has earned the right to compete in NRHA Adequan North American Affiliate Championships scheduled to take place during the NRHA Futurity in Oklahoma City from Nov. 28 through Dec. 7.

Whitney is a resident of Weatherford and is a junior at Peaster High School. She is a member of Peaster FFA.

Whitney will be competing against more than 500 reiners from across North America aboard her American quarter horse Starbucks Jazz in the non-pro and intermediate non-pro North American Affiliate Championship class.

The NRHA Adequan North American Affiliate Championships are for qualified NRHA members and their horses only. Entrants qualify for the Affiliate Championships through their respective regional affiliate finals. Each finals sends its eight highest placing riders, plus ties, to the championships. The NRHA Futurity & Adequan North American Affiliate Championship Show attracts exhibitors and spectators from around the globe and includes a trade show, three NRHA/Markel Insurance horse sales, an intercollegiate judging contest, youth activities, Reining Horse Sports Foundation’s “A Slide to Remember,” and many more activities geared toward enjoyment for the whole family.

During its 10-day run, the NRHA Futurity & Adequan North American Affiliate Championship Show contributes nearly $67 million to the overall Oklahoma City economy. Exhibitors will compete for more than $2 million in purse and prizes.

Highlights of the NRHA Futurity & Adequan North American Affiliate Championships will air on NRHA’s television show, “NRHA Inside Reining.” Check your local channel guide or visit for show dates and times.
