About the Michigan Quarter Horse Association

The Michigan Quarter Horse Association is an enthusiastic group of individuals who breed, raise, train, show or just plain love the American Quarter Horse. MQHA offers those who wish to compete nearly 40 AQHA/MQHA approved shows, including an All-Novice Show/Open Show to introduce less seasoned competitors to national competition. Shows offer not only halter, showmanship, western and hunt seat classes, but trail, western riding, roping, reining, barrels and poles, over fences and many other specialty competitions.

In addition, MQHA hosts a yearly trail ride for those who choose to enjoy their horses on a more recreational level. MQHA is committed to educating its membership. Clinics are offered at many shows by AQHA professional horsemen and horsewomen.
