  Welcome to the

   Ranch Horse Association of Michigan

  RHAM is where real people and real horses come together to have some real fun! No matter what your western riding discipline is reining, cutting, conformation, roping, sorting, sliding, or spinning…we have fun classes to offer you. Come check out our welcoming show atmosphere, where competitors laugh and help each other and the key is to have fun.

 RHAM is a great place to compete for the first time, but we also offer the seasoned rider a place to show their horse where friendly competition reigns. And it won't break the bank!  All classes are moderately priced at just $12.00 per judge for Open, Amateur, and Novice Amateur classes, and just $10.00 per judge for Youth.
