Welcome to the official website of the Howard County Horse Shows Association!
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!
2016 RegistrationThe 2016 registration form is now available! Please click here for the mail-in form or here to register online using PayPal. We encourage everyone to register early to prevent holdups in the entry booth at the shows. Also, don't forget that our Pre-Season Warm-Up on March 26 will award double points to all HCHSA members! Points are not retroactive, so both horse and rider must be registered with HCHSA prior to the show to earn points.
2016 Show ScheduleThe 2016 show schedule is live! Please click here to view. This year we will be participating in the Colonial Classic Horse Show - all points earned from HCHSA shows will go toward qualifying. Please click here for more information on the Colonial Classic.
Attention All Junior Riders!The Junior Board program is looking for new members for 2016. The format of the group will be a bit different this year. There will be 3 committees (based on interest) that will work to support the association. Cary Hundley will oversee the operations of the committees, handle funds, and help as needed. The goal is to get everyone involved and working together to keep HCHSA alive and well!
The committees are as follows:
Please fill out this form if interested. You will receive an email afterward with information regarding the specific committee(s) you indicated. Note: There is no age minimum. I encourage all young riders, including short stirrup, to apply. Only requirement is to be a HCHSA member. Thank you, and we look forward to a successful year!
