The VBHSA is a volunteer organization consisting of hundreds of members including farms, adult amateurs, profesionals, juniors and people who love horses.
...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 Association 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 20 Virginia Horse Show Association Associate rated shows each year and tracks points for year-end awards, which are awarded at an annual banquet.
The VBHSA also supports via donation various charitable organizations including local rescue squads.
If you are interested in horses and horse-showing, you're invited to attend a show, see how much fun it can be, and get involved. For more information, feel free to contact any of us by email or telephone.

Why is Coggins mandatory?
It keeps your horse/pony safe and protects other horses & ponies! The Coggins tests for EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia), an infectious and potentially fatal viral disease for which there is no vaccine or treatment.
If a horsefly bites an infected horse and then bite a healthy horse, the disease gets transmitted.
For one horse to infect another they must be close enough to each other for a fly to bite both of them.
Prior to or on day of show, owners entering horses/ponies into a VBHSA show must produce a current hard copy of the official Equine Infectious Anemia Test form (VS Form 10-11) as having been tested within the previous 12 months for EIA with a negative result. The hard copy can periodically be requested by the State Veterinarians Office for proof of Coggins..
The official EIA test form is reviewed and kept on file by the Show Secretary and/or Show Manager to ensure all entered horses have test negative for EIA. It is the owners responsibility to ensure a hard copy of the form on file with the VBHSA is up-to-date.
