The Western Carolina Arabian Horse Association currently offers 2 levels of memberships. The Adult or Junior Memberships include an affiliate membership with the Arabian Horse Association. The adult membership is a voting membership and the number of voting delegates the club receives at the Regional and National level is based on the number of adult members. A membership with AHA is required for both the owner and rider/handler at any AHA sanctioned show (direct membership to AHA is more expensive than joining WCAHA as an affiliate member and does not include voting privileges). WCAHA memberships also include a subscription to the Arabian News.
WCAHA members and youth members are eligible to enter their horse(s) in the Club's High Point Awards Program AT NO CHARGE. In order to be eligible, a nomination form must be completed and returned prior to the competition year (November 1 through October 31.) See below for complete details.
If you don’t plan to show or compete, you can enjoy all the other benefits of membership for only $65.
For more information on WCAHA membership, email Patti Rowe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
