C Bar C Expo Center
We are so excited to continue to host the NOHSA World Championship Show in the beautiful and centrally-located C Bar C Expo Center in Cloverdale, IN.
Carl & Cindy Harlan
Owners of C Bar C Arena
"C Bar C Expo Center, owned by Carl and Cindy Harlan of Waynetown, Indiana, is quickly becoming Indiana’s number 1 choice for equine and livestock shows. C Bar C is known for its friendly staff, great homemade food, and clean facility. The entire barn is cleaned and sanitized before every show to help promote the health of the horses and other livestock that attend our events. In 2019 C Bar C went solar and is now run completely from our solar field that sits behind the Arena, setting this facility up for generations to come."
Hotel reservations can be made by contacting the hotel directly.
Entries will open on July 1, 2022.
All entries for NOHSA World Championship classes must be submitted and paid for no later than August 15, 2022 at 11:59 PM (CST) to avoid post entry fees. Entries must be submitted on the official online entry form and once an entry is received by the office it is considered official. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to confirm the receipt of entries and payment. NOHSA is not responsible for lost or late entries.
Entry fees paid after August 15 must be made at the show office and will incur an additional $15.00 increase. See pricing chart for details (right). All post entries must be made a minimum of two classes before the class (not including lead line).
Exhibitors must qualify in at least one class in order to enter. However, exhibitors are not limited to only competing in classes in which they qualify. Once the one-class requirement is met, exhibitors may enter classes for which they are not qualified with an additional $15.00 qualification fee. See pricing chart for details (right).
The 2022 NOHSA World Championship show will be offering four "Open $250 Added" classes. The entry fee is $30.00. This class is open to all age groups and is exempt from any qualification requirements.

Bedding & Feed
One person must be designated as agent for each stalling group. Accuracy of information pertaining to the stalling agent is the responsibility of the exhibitor. Exhibitors that incorrectly identify their stalling group are not guaranteed to be stalled in their desired location.
Stalling preference cannot be guaranteed. Priority stalling will be given to sponsors, by level and date sponsorship payment was received. Sponsorship payment must be received by NOHSA no later than August 15 in order to receive stalling perks. Stalls will be pre-assigned and must be reserved and paid before assignment. Stall reservations will not be considered complete until payment has been received and will be subject to the appropriate fees based on the date payment is received. Stall reservations received after August 15 will be placed on a first come, first serve basis. Any additions/changes to reservations that are made after this date are not guaranteed to be placed with the original reservation. Stall assignments will be released on September 1, 2022.
High Point Awards
NOHSA will award High Point Awards at the NOHSA World Championship Show. Each of the seven divisions will be awarded a High Point Cooler.
High Point Award ties will be broken by (1) the horse or contestant winning over the greatest number of horses, (2) the number of points earned in the greatest number of classes, and (3) in head-to-head competition, the horse or one-horse, one-exhibitor combination that placed higher the most times.
High Point Declaration & Changes
Each one-horse, one-exhibitor combination is limited to competing for one High Point Division, which must be declared at time of entry. Exhibitors who wish to compete for the Ranch High Point Award or Walk Trot High Point Award will not be eligible to compete for their corresponding age division. If entries are received without a High Point Award declaration, the exhibitor’s corresponding age division will be listed. High Point Award declaration changes will be accepted until back numbers are picked up from the show office.
High Point Classes
The following classes will count toward each division High Point Award. High Point coolers will be awarded to the highest point earning individual in each category. High point scores will be calculated following the conclusion of the last class in each division.

I’m Becky, owner and main photographer here at Ruehle Photographix. I started thisadventure in 2012, and it has been the greatest ride! Photography and horses aren’t just a part of my job, they are my job, and my life. I grew up riding and showing horses. When I wasn’t on the back of a horse, I was taking pictures of them. One college degree from Carroll College later and I decided to jump right into this “horses & pictures” adventure, full time.
I feel very blessed to have learned from some of the best in the business… Larry Williams and Jeff Kirkbride. But always live by the motto of “Never Stop Learning”. I am born and raised in Wisconsin, but you can find me just about anywhere taking photos at a show or out in someones horse pasture! I look forward to meeting you and capturing the moments that mean the most to you!
