About Us

The Rhode Island Arabian Horse Association (RIAHA) was formed over 20 years ago and is a recognized club in Region 16 of the Arabian Horse Assoociation (AHA) which is comprised of Maine, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

For the Love of the Arabian Horse

The club was formed to bring together people interested in advancing and promoting the Arabian and Half-Arabian horse. In order to stimulate popular interest in the Arabian horse, RIAHA conducts several events throughout the year, including horse shows, clinics and demonstrations, as well as regular meetings.

Join the Fun

Our membership is varied from first-time owners to show ring veterans, successful breeders and trainers and admirers of the Arabian horse. We offer many options for membership and invite you to become involved with one of our committees and to participate in our events.
