Welcome to the American Ranch Horse Association
Welcome to the home of the ranch horse. The American Ranch Horse Association 'ARHA' is a national association that promotes and values the true versatile working ranch horse. Our association provides a friendly and family orientated environment where ranch horses can compete at an elite level to exhibit their versatile skills and abilities. We are open to western stock-quarter type breeds and we encourage participation from horses on the ranch, trail, or in the show ring.
ARHA promotes the abilities of the all-around working quarter-type horse through our shows, clinics, and sales. We offer an atmosphere that is positive and promotes honesty, personal growth and courtesy towards our fellow horseman. Our horses are treated and shown with respect and the true western tradition is genuinely honored.
When you join the ARHA, you are not only becoming a member of the family of ARHA horse owners but you join an organization that is dedicated to providing its members with outstanding service and programs. All ARHA events, programs and services encourage fun, friendly, family oriented competitions at all levels, where members can participate in many fun activities and learning experiences. Although we pride ourselves on the family we create we do not lack in fierce competition. Our competitors are some of the most elite in the industry. We have trainers, exhibitors, and horses who not only can succeed in specialized events but cross over and become all around versatile competitors.
The ARHA offers programs reflecting the interests of its members and offers special awards programs for those who enjoy the excitement of competition.
