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

2016 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!

In Memory of Gretchen Mobberley

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our vice president, Gretchen Mobberley. Gretchen passed away on February 21st at home surrounded by family. Gretchen was a founding member of the association, and her accomplishments and contributions to the equine community are innumerable. She will be greatly missed by all.

A celebration of Gretchen's life will be held on March 7 at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Glenwood, MD at 12:00PM, with a reception to follow.

Please keep Gretchen's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

2016 Registration

The 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.
