West Coast Barrel Racing Association (WCBRA) is Acquired
Based in Paso Robles, CA, WCBRA is the largest barrel racing association on the West Coast with more than 600 prime-sanctioned races and a massive payout Finals each year.
“The opportunity to serve the many people who participate in barrel racing has been a joy for the Morris family for 22 years,” said William S. Morris III, founder of the National Barrel Horse Association (NBHA).
“Therefore, it makes it very special to have the opportunity to acquire the West Coast Barrel Racing Association. It will be a great marriage that stretches from coast to coast.”
“We are honored to have Bailey Nahrgang join the Morris Equine Group as Director of Barrel Racing.”
“As we all know, she is competent and enthusiastic about barrel racing. We look forward to joining her and the many members of the West Coast Barrel Racing Association to manage and develop this great sport,” said Morris.
“With NBHA and WCBRA, we now serve two strong sets of memberships coast to coast,” said Bailey Nahrgang, WCBRA’s owner. “By simultaneously managing the two associations and their finals to complement each other, we can continue to be innovative, host world-class productions, and provide opportunities to compete for life-changing payouts.”
In her new role as Director of Barrel Racing, Nahrgang will continue to oversee the operations of the WCBRA, as well as play a vital role in the National Barrel Horse Association.
