West Coast Ranch Horse began offering online shows with the advent of show cancellations due to COVID in the spring of 2020. What started as a way to keep our West Coast USA members showing during lockdown, blossomed into an online all ranch horse show program for which there has been year round demand around the world even as live shows are offered again. To separate our popular international ranch horse show program from our domestic US live shows, we started the International Ranch Horse (iRanch Horse) program in March of 2020.
For years now, the International Ranch Horse Association has been a program that provided international reach with its popular online shows. We have held the International Ranch Horse World Show for the past two years and the International Ranch Horse Futurity & Maturity with participation from around the world. The Ranch Horse World Standings program is our vision to provide a way for exhibitors to show locally from anywhere in the world and compete internationally for awards and recognition. Look for opportunities to show with our IRHA approved show partners globally at live shows coming soon!
Show managers: If you are interested in IRHA show approval, please contact us for more information.
The International Ranch Horse Association (IRHA) is a non-profit association registered with the federal government.
IRHA will no longer be producing online shows. We have partnered with the successful Open Horse Show Association to bring you a fun and affordable online show experience! All members qualified for the IRHA World Show, are eligible to ride in OHSA's World Show using their IRHA membership number. This is a great program offering monthly online shows with many ranch offerings, great awards and is now IRHA approved! The show is held in May. Look for info on OHSA's site.
