The VBHSA is a volunteer organization consisting of hundreds of members including farms, adult amateurs, professionals, juniors and people who have a love of horses.
Our purpose is to promote sportsmanship and horsemanship; to conduct horse shows, clinics, forums, and other special events; to assign show dates and certify recognition of shows; to encourage participation in all VBHSA recognized shows and events by all VBHSA members who are in good standing; and to make adequate and fair rules governing competitions and to enforce them for the common benefit.
The VBHSA recognizes approximately twenty Virginia Horse Show Association (VHSA) Associate rated shows each year. VBHSA member points are tracked for year-end awards such as trophies, ribbons and prizes which are presented to them at the VBHSA Annual Banquet.
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, we are able to hold an annual fund raising event the VBHSA Cooler Show. The Cooler Show awards trophies, ribbons and prizes to the show competitors.
The VBHSA is pleased to supports various charitable organizations including local rescue squads via donations.
