Welcome to the
American Ranch Horse Association
The American Ranch Horse Association (ARHA) is a National Horse Show Association that promotes and values a truly versatile ranch type horse. ARHA provides a friendly, competitive, and family-oriented environment where ranch horses can compete in classes from Showmanship to Reining to Working Cow Horse. At our horse shows you will see competitors who exhibit an all-around ranch horse and those who specialize in any given event within our diverse group of classes.
ARHA promotes the abilities of the all-around horse through shows, clinics, and sales. The atmosphere is positive and supports honesty, personal growth, and courtesy towards fellow horsemen. Horses are respected and the western tradition is genuinely honored.
To join ARHA not only means becoming a member of the family, but joining an organization that provides its members with outstanding services and programs. You can find fierce competition as well as encouragement from fellow members at all of our ARHA events!
The ARHA offers programs reflecting the interests of its members and offers special award programs for those who enjoy the excitement of competition!
