When you join the Diablo Arabian Horse Association, you do more than gain new opportunities to be involved with Arabian horses, you join a community of like minded people coming together to honor and celebrate the Arabian horse. This community is uniquely bonded through their love of the breed. This “horse family”, as so many refer to their friends in the community, is local, national, and worldwide. Whether you are a spectator, local trail rider, show bound for a “Class A”, Regional, or National show, or perhaps somewhere in between, you will have your new “horse family” beside you. These familiar and friendly faces will be there to celebrate the Arabian horse and its dedicated community with you.
When you join Diablo Arabian Horse Association you automatically become a member of Arabian Horse Association, our parent club and the ruling body over officially recognized Arabian horse events and competitions. The Arabian Horse Association is under the umbrella of the United States Equestrian Federation and abides by its standards of excellence. USEF is the organization that sends our American equestrians to the Olympic games. We are proud to be part of such an illustrious group and we welcome you to join us.
Throughout America, the country is split up into multiple regions and Diablo AHA is part of Region 3 of Northern California. Region 3 hosts a Championship horse show each Summer as a step in the search for a coveted National Championship award.
To show at the Region 3 Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show, one must compete and qualify at a Region 3 Class “A” Horse Show. Diablo AHA hosts two Region 3 Class “A” qualifying horse shows each year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall.
To qualify for US and Canadian National Championship Horse Shows, one needs to compete at a Regional Championship Horse Show and be awarded points or top placement.
