Due to the coronavirus pandemic, please note that shows may be cancelled without much notice. We try to keep our schedule page up to date as information comes in, so please check it frequently before making plans. After much debate and careful consideration,  the MCHA board has decided to pull its approval of any shows scheduled prior to May 17th. We will continue to stay on top of latest developments and keep our membership informed as best we can.

Thank you


Please remember to fill out the questionnaire that the NCHA recently emailed to all members regarding the $50,000 Amateur class and eligibility.  Our own Peri Suerum has spent a lot of time and effort regarding this issue and it has obviously caught the attention of the NCHA Amateur Committee.  Thanks for your cooperation!


MCHA has reached it's goal of 400 plates!  We want to thank all of those who purchased license plates for your vehicles and trailers!  MCHA would like to especially thank Todd & Lee Wirthlin of TLC Ranch, for all of the hard work that was put into saving our license plate and for their generous donation of the Noble Shelter for the giveaway.  We could not have reached the goal with out you!  

Next time you register or renew a vehicle or wish to purchase a new plate for your horse trailer, ask for the MCHA plate!  This is a HUGE part of MCHA's income, help support MCHA! Click here for more information
