The Oklahoma Buckskin Horse Association (OBHA) was formed & incorporated in 1981. The club is operated & conducted as a non-profit association in accordance with the laws of the State of Oklahoma. The purpose of the club is to make the public aware of and to encourage interest in Buckskin, Dun, Red Dun and Grulla horses through competition. We offer a valuable avenue to our youth by showing them the pride, excitement and challenge involved in the raising, breeding, and showing of Buckskin horses - while continuing to improve the breed.
Our goal as a club is to create a fun, family environment for all horse lovers (no matter the color of your horse) in which to show their horses with excitement and challenge of competition.
OBHA is a charter affiliate of the American Buckskin Registry Association (ABRA) and lifetime points can be earned by registered ABRA horses at OBHA shows. You can strive toward receiving ABRA awards such as a Register of Merit, Championship, and/or Supreme Championship...just to name a few.
ADVANTAGES OF AN OBHA MEMBERSHIP
Striving to promote the Buckskin colors through word of mouth, meetings, social gatherings, and horse shows, gives us all a chance to make new friends and keep in touch with our "Buckskin Buddies." Using OBHA as a central source of unity, Members help to create a new and thriving market for our Buckskin horses.
Membership in OBHA is not just limited to Buckskin owners. OBHA membership has advantages for anyone who wants to participate within the club. Which ever color your horse might be, an OBHA membership may just be for you. At each of the OBHA shows, we offer ABRA approved classes along with Open classes (open classes are for all breeds and all colors). All OBHA shows are held at the Claremore Expo Center, in Claremore OK. At every show, awards are given out to the OBHA Members that receive the mostclass and Grand & Reserve Awards for all 7 Categories.
