Welcome to the official website of the Howard County Horse Shows Association!

2015 SCHEDULE     SHOW RESULTS     Standings

The Howard County Horse Shows Association was established in 1979 to provide Howard County and surrounding area residents with rated quality horse shows at convenient locations. Today, HCHSA still provides family-friendly, affordable horse shows with challenging and safe courses. HCHSA members compete for year-end and perpetual awards which are given out at our gala awards banquet. Junior riders also have the opportunity to win the $2500 Junior Achievement Scholarship. There are divisions for riders and horses of all ages and experience levels. We look forward to seeing you!




Late breaking updates to share with you!

New revised schedule for the 2015 Fall HCHSA Show.

Adding a Long Stirrup Hunter Division after the Long Stirrup Eq. Division

Also we have recently become aware that there is a difference in cross entry rules between HCHSA and MHSA. Please note that the HCHSA allows Short Stirrup riders to cross enter into Mini, Low Pony, and Pony Pleasure divisions. MHSA only allows Short Stirrups riders to cross enter into Leadline. Points count for both associations on Short Stirrup and Leadline. Going beyond, exhibitors must decide on the day of show when entering to which organization they would like their points to go.

Board members are seeking suggestions for the Medal Finals and year end banquet prizes. Please send your ideas to Emily Burke (Burke06@Sbc.edu), Evan Crierie (ecrierie@umd.edu), or Vicky Beale (kvafarmllc@yahoo.com).

And last but certainly not least, we would love to get your photos for our website and banquet book! Please collect and send on to webmaster@HCHSA.net.

Thanks and we hope to see you all at the next show!
