Our Mission

The Buckeye Reining Series has been created by a dedicated group of individuals to bring excitement back to the reining world east of the Mississippi. The birth place of reining, Ohio, is where it all started with great horsemen like Dale Wilkinson and Bill Horn. We honor them by building on the traditions of the NRHA and embracing change and innovation through industry growth. The BRS founders are a diverse, experienced group of trainers, owners and non pros with a tremendous passion for the promotion of this sport and the spirit of competition. Our purpose is to provide quality horse shows, offering something to every level of rider, whether starting in the entry level, running for a title, or having an open horse ready for a sanctioned event. The BRS will host a series of shows that includes great incentives, prizes in all divisions, a top notch youth program, low retainage fees, a futurity, a derby, AQHA Ranch Riding, year end awards, exhibitor parties and so much more. Our goal is to bring exceptional reining shows back to Ohio that are enjoyed by all.
