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

2018 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 Gretchen Mobberly Junior Achievement Scholarship. There are divisions for riders and horses of all ages and experience levels. We look forward to seeing you!

HCHSA is also proud to participate in the Colonial Classic Local Champions' Finals in Harrisburg, PA. Our members are able to accumulate points throughout the season in select divisions, and the top three riders in these divisions will qualify to attend the Colonial Classic Horse Show in September.
