CHANGES TO NRHA Patterns in 2016


There are minor wording changes to a few current NRHA patterns for 2016 – NRHA reports, “rewording to patterns 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13 to describe the most desired way to accomplish the transition from circling to the stop.” This doesn’t change the diagrams, so your 2015 Pattern sets should remain good to go if you just use the diagram side, although we’ll be changing the descriptions on the back sides to reflect those wording changes in 2016.

NEW NRHA PATTERN 12 & 13 have bumped the old Youth Pattern 13 to become Youth Pattern 14, and Youth Pattern 13 is now Youth Pattern 15. So now there are 13 active NRHA standard patterns (1 – 13) and two Youth Patterns (14 & 15).

Be sure you have an NRHA SG set from no older than 2015, then you can reorder just the two New Patterns (12 & 13) and/or Reorder the two New Patterns (12 & 13) AND the two RENUMBERED Youth Patterns (14 & 15), if you want to update your set.

Because of all the small changes over the years, to be safe you should reorder a fresh set just to keep it straight!

NO CHANGES TO NRCHA Patterns in 2016

However, be sure you have an NRCHA SG set from no older than 2014 to be sure you have updated Pattern cards!

Remember that NRCHA MADE CHANGES TO PATTERNS #4, #6 AND #12 in 2014 as follows:

Pattern 4 – change 2.5 spins to 3.5 spins.
Pattern 6 – change 3.5 spins to 2.5 spins.
Pattern 12 – change 2.5 spins to 3.5 spins.

NOTE: In 2012, NRCHA compeletely CHANGED Pattern #6. It is NOT the same as AQHA Pattern 6. All previous years (2006-2011) Slidin’Guide Cards for Pattern #6 are VOID. Please reorder an NRCHA Pattern #6 card and replace your old card if older than 2012. Be sure you have a NRCHA SG set from no earlier than 2014 to be sure you have the correct Pattern cards!
