Washington State Horsemen (WSH) was formed in 1941 by equine enthusiasts.

Their desire to come together, in a common bond, all individuals throughout the State interested in equine as defined by the State Department of Agriculture, whether for business or pleasure.

The organization has three major divisions which sets it apart from many other horse associations.

Divisions include:

Annually, WSH holds a Convention late Fall (typically early November) alternating locations between the West and East side of the State in order to give equal access to the membership.

Through shows and events held each year, Washington State Horsemen has an economic impact of $5,165,920. With its primary funding source consisting mostly of membership fees, the organization is operated entirely by volunteers.

WSH publishes a quarterly newsletter.  Members receive The Canter mailed directly to their homes in April and October. Additionally, The e-Canter, is available on the website in January and July.  For further details regarding WSH Communications, please visit our News and Publications page.

With a growing membership, we encourage all equine enthusiasts to join Washington State’s only multi-age, multi-discipline, multi-breed organization where the whole family can play together!
