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!
