The California Reined Cow Horse Association is dedicated to preserving the vaquero tradition of training and exhibiting reined cow horses in California.

CRCHA events offer a wide range of NRCHA and CRCHA approved open and non-pro horse show, spectacular and limited-age event classes, providing a place for exhibitors of all ages and experience levels and horses of all ages and stages of training to practice, compete for prize money and awards, and improve their showmanship.

CRCHA events are offered on an almost monthly basis from January through November and strive to give spectators, owners and exhibitors the best live reined cow horse experience possible with some of the best horses and exhibitors showing in some of the best facilities in the reined cow horse industry.
