  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. Pre-enter and get a discount on your entry fees, no advance payment required!

 Hello fellow ranch horse enthusiasts!


We are very much looking forward to showing with you all this year and hope it to be the best year yet. Can't say enough good about our association and how much fun it has been and hopefully will continue to be. First off, a huge thanks to all who showed with us last year and also to those who helped.


The board and committees have been very busy preparing for the 2015 season.


 ·          SHOW BILL UPDATES:  We have changed our show bill around to accommodate all of our classes without sacrificing any and doing our best not to have the show run to early AM hours or hopefully not even late PM hours. We were unable to get the crystal ball to work so we’ll have to see how it goes at the first couple shows.


·         HIGH POINT SADDLE:  We are very proud to be able to offer a beautiful Punk Carter saddle as our high point award this year. It will be awarded to the highest point scorer in a single division.  Along with our weekend buckle series and year end awards.   


·         REDUCED YOUTH FEES:  Our youth entry fees are at a discounted rate this year to promote our youth (parents) participation.


·         YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP FUND:   We have also added a youth scholarship fund for our youth program.


·         CLINICS:  We also are offering clinics again this year. Our first were held March 28th and 29th and covered Ranch Reining and there are more clinics scheduled thru the year.


-   For details, visit our Clinics page or contact Paulette Brown 269-876-4795 for details and to reserve your spot.


·         RHAM MEMBERSHIP:  Time to get your RHAM membership completed too – send in your membership early as our points do not start to accumulate until you are a member.


So dust off your boots and saddles, brush out that winter coat and please come join us at the RHAM Challenge at MSU, May 8-10.  Can't wait to get started - looking forward to seeing you all there!!


Mike Backus
RHAM President
