About Region 5

The Arabian Horse Association's Region 5 encompasses Alaska, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana.

Region 5 has earned the respect of Arabian horse competitors across the country. Whether for show, endurance or dressage, horses from the Pacific Northwest are among the best in the nation.

The quality and caliber of our Region 5 horses are evident by the results of highly competitive shows such as the U.S. Nationals, Canadian Nationals, and Scottsdale.

2018 Endurance Season:

EnduranceRegion 5 Endurance season is about to get started.   Most of these rides have an “intro ride” or “trail ride” that is a shorter distance to allow you to try the sport without jumping into the limited distance of 25 mile. These intro rides are non-timed events, so you can take as long as you need to finish, yet still go through the vetting requirements to learn the process.  If it’s something you are thinking about trying it’s the best way to experience endurance without the stress of being timed.    

Another great thing about endurance, is there is really no dress code other than the required helmet while mounted per EDRA rules.  You can use any saddle and any tack that best fits your horse and clothes that you feel comfortable in.

The Region 5 Endurance Championship will be at Capital Forest in Olympia Wa, 23 June 2018.  Base camp will be the Evergreen Gun Club.   
If you want to experience night riding in a safe environment, check out Midnight Riders on 25 August.  Ride manager, Bobbi Walker, does an amazing job of coordinating this to be a successful learning experience.  

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
