2009 marked the inaugural year for the Arenus Rider of the Year program. The program, which is available to National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) members competing in open and non-pro classes, awards a year end prize to the highest enrolled money earning horse and rider team. Participants must enroll each horse they wish to be eligible with Arenus. There is no registration fee and the only requirement is that the enrolled horse must be on an Arenus joint health or digestive aid supplement for at least six months of the calendar year.

The prize for the award is worthy of some friendly competition. In addition to a beautiful trophy buckle and saddle, Arenus also awards a year’s supply of Arenus products. The program’s creator, Brady Karren, Arenus Sales Specialist. Karren thought that the award would be a great way for Arenus to support NRHA customers and provide a reward for the continuous efforts of these horse and rider teams. "Besides the chance to win some fantastic prizes, participants are using great products designed to increase their horse’s performance," said Karren.

This year’s awards were presented Saturday, December 5th during the NRHA Futurity. Jose Vasquez and Wound By Juice won the non-pro award with NRHA earnings of $45,808.41. Jordan Larson and Moonshine N Juice earned owners Nathan Ivie and Brent Hatch the open award ending the year with $47,410.11 in NRHA earnings.

Arenus asked fellow NRHA corporate sponsors to participate in the program which is continuing in 2010. Prizes include a trophy buckle from Montana Silversmith, a trophy saddle from Pard’s and a year’s supply of product from Arenus. Registration for the 2010 Arenus Rider of the Year started January 1, 2010. To learn more or enroll your horse, visit www.arenus.com or call (866)791-3344.
