Our club has reached out to the Texas American Saddle Horse Association (TASHA) in hopes of partnering with them to put on a combined rated horse show: Arabians, Half-Arabians and Saddlebreds in 2020.


In the meantime, their organization will be having their annual "2019 Holiday Horse Show" in Bryan, Texas and they have included classes for any breed. Yes, that means, "YOU" and your Arabian/Half Arabian. Their intent is to support all breeds in our area by including them in their show. If you want to have some FUN that weekend come on out and participate.

Show: 2019 Holiday Horse Show

Date:  December 7 -8, 2019

Location: Brazos County Expo Complex, Bryan, TX
