American Collegiate Horsemen's Association

 

What is ACHA?

American Collegiate Horsemen's Association 

ACHA is the national organization that represents Horsemen’s Associations of universities and junior colleges across the country. Our mission is to unify collegiate horsemen of all levels and disciplines through the promotion of leadership, education, and community service. Our efforts to fulfill our mission include hosting an annual national convention, recognizing outstanding individuals within local chapters as Horseman of the Month, and partnering with national equine organizations to provide quality education opportunities to collegiate horsemen.

National Convention 

2019 Convention

The 2019 National convention was held in Charleston, South Carolina. Students toured Middleton Farms, a carriage ride facility and took guided tours in Charlotte, and visited Mullet hall where they got detailed information about the history of Marsh Tacky’s as well as a farrier demonstration. They were networked with equine professionals in marketing, saddle fitting, hippotherapy, mounted shooting, and breeders.

A special congratulations to some of our members who were elected as ACHA National Officers! Kortini Langlinais as Vice President and Zachary Wilson as Director of Communications.

Have a question or are confused about something? Check to see if one of your questions is answered on here! If not, please feel free to email us with whatever question you may have, and we will get back to you as soon as possible! We're here for you!

 

Do I have to own a horse to be a member?

Absolutely not! In fact, many of our members do not currently own their horse. We hope that offering plenty of networking contacts to our members that would like to ride or eventually own a horse, are able to reach out and accomplish those goals.

Are there any requirements that I must fulfill to join the club?

The only thing that we require of future members is that you have an interest in horses! As long as dues are paid, there are no other requirements.

Can y'all help me find a stable for riding lessons specific to my riding level?

Yes! Email us with a description of your riding background, what style you prefer to ride in, and budget! We would be more than happy to help you with finding a stable in the area!

Do I have to be in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and an undergraduate student to join?

Not at all! Our membership is open to students in any major. Graduate and Undergraduate students are welcome to be members with us!
