WELCOME TO MARYLAND WESTERN HORSE ASSOCIATION!!!!
MWHA is an all-breed horse association offering English, western, ranch and speed classes with divisions for riders of all levels. Beginners and new members are always welcome, though you don't have to be a member to compete. Spectators are welcome, free parking, free admission. All of our shows take place at the Howard County Fairgrounds, West Friendship, MD and run from April to October. We offer fantastic year-end awards at our annual fun-filled banquet in February. We even have a fabulous, fun show at the FAIR!
Our judges are usually carded with associations such as the AQHA, ApHC, APHA and others, though sometimes we will use regional judges. We also participate in ApHC ACAAP & APHA PAC. and JC TIP PERFORMANCE.
This year we are partnering with the East Coast Ranch Horse Association to co-point shows.
MWHA exists to promote good sportsmanship and horsemanship among owners and exhibitors. We, as an association encourage learning, friendship, family participation and fun.
