Intro to the NVSA

In 2018, at the USTA Drivers/Trainers School in Goshen, NY, Tim Bohannon hatched the idea of growing the western standardbred industry.  In November of 2018 the Nevada Standardbred Association, Inc. (“NVSA”) was born.  Supported by a few dedicated individuals the vision is coming to life.

The Nevada Standardbred Association, Inc. ("NVSA"), a Nevada not-for-profit corporation, was created to promote our industry and sport in the Great State of Nevada. Founded in November 2018 by a few dedicated individuals who have lived the Standardbred Life, brought a vision of sharing this life with Nevada. The NVSA supports the industry by assisting racing operation startups, representation to the Racing Commission, breeding operations assistance, and providing a network for trainers, drivers and caretakers. The NVSA is also working closely with educators to increase Equine Management offerings in the Silver State.


The NVSA represents standardbred interests through assisting operators in racing readiness. This includes representation to the Nevada Gaming Commission as well as assistance with site selection and proposals.  Our goal is to help establish quality harness racing in Nevada.
