About Us

The Bluegrass Arabian Horse Association was founded in the Fall of 2004, by a close knit group of Arabian Horse enthusiasts who were determined to put the FUN back in horses and horse shows. 
The group is very friendly and likes to have FUN!
You are welcome whether you own a horse, want to own a horse or miss having your own horse.
Join BAHA and join the most FUN group of horse people in the state of KENTUCKY!
We have a wide variety of programs to suit everyone…from our annual BAHA Spring Blast Horse Show to the Falling Leaves Trail Ride to just having FUN…come join us!

Each year, BAHA  puts on an Open All Breed Horse Show and an American Saddlebred Show. While we love our Arabian horses, all horses are welcome in our club and at our show. After all, we are all about the fun! Held in Shelbyville, KY each spring, this show attracts many academy riders, beginner riders, green horses and those just looking to have a good time!
BAHA also hosts an annual AHA Value One Day Show in conjunction with the Open All Breed & ASB Horse Show. This gives many opportunities to a wide range of riders and breeds to come and show their horses in a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
BAHA also has a High Point program and active Youth program, both of which we encourage members to take part in. The annual high point banquet is held in January and trophies are awarded to the previous years winners.
You can also catch us each July at Breyerfest held at the Kentucky Horse Park for the Arabian horse demonstrations.
BAHA youth participate in local, regional and national activities. Car washes, sleepovers, crafts, parades and horse judging keep our kiddos active!
In the fall, we have fun at the Annual BAHA Falling Leaves Trail Ride. This trail ride is open to the public and we’d love for you to join us!
