2019 August 31st – September 2nd – AOHA: Alabama Open Horse Association Labor Day Horse Show

Alabama Open Horseman Association, “AOHA,” is comprised of sixteen independent local horse show associations located throughout the State of Alabama and selected locations of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. The goal of AOHA is the promotion and sponsorship of our State Championship Horse Show, held each Labor Day weekend, and development and support of the youth who show and compete within the AOHA. The State Championship Show will celebrate its 32nd year of existence in 2019 and continues to be the largest and most successful horse show east of the Mississippi River, at its home Garrett Coliseum.


Contestants wishing to compete in the Show must qualify by successful participation throughout the year in the shows of the local associations, and only the top horses from those associations may register to enter the Show. Classes are open to all breeds of horse and pony; for youth and adults; and classes range from halter, to timed events, to English and Western pleasure, to Gaited horse. Presented awards are buckles, plaques, trophies and saddles. For further information contact an association director in your area or any AOHA Director or Officer.
