08/30/23 – Please welcome Haylee Fisher as the new State Director for Michigan NBHA! Congratulations Haylee!!

Hello, members of Michigan NBHA! I wanted to let you all know that as of today I am your new Michigan State Director. While I know there is a lot of work to be done I am really, really excited and grateful for this opportunity.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve been a member of NBHA for 23 years. My family primarily bred and trained reining horses but recently our focus has been back on barrel racing.
I have been the director of MI02 for three great years and it has been a honor to help grow the sport of barrel racing in our area. My husband, Chris, and I have a horse farm in Maple City, Michigan. We really try to put our efforts into the youth in our area as it’s something we feel very passionately about.
Michigan NBHA has some unique challenges to overcome. My hope is that we can all come together to make our NBHA experience what we all know it can be. I hope that you can look forward to next year with optimism and enthusiasm about being a member. I promise to work hard for you, and I hope that you will, in turn give Michigan NBHA a second chance.
I hope you all have a great end of your district seasons and will be in touch soon with updates about the upcoming 2024 season!
