In 2017, KVHA, a non-profit charity, will host five open-point horse shows at Winfield Riding Club. At these popular shows, we offer classes from wide-ranging divisions and -- new for 2017 -- we've added thrilling contest divisions of reining, barrels and poles. We are excited about these new offerings for exhibitors and spectators alike, and recognize that our sponsors will benefit from this improved schedule as well. We hope you decide to support KVHA as we, in turn, support our exhibitors, communities and local charities.

The Kanawha Valley Horsemen's Association ( KVHA )was established in 1960 and has been a strong presence in the WV horse show community for 57 years. The Kanawha Valley Horsemen’s Association sponsors the largest all-breed horse show in West Virginia. The show season starts in April and concludes in October with the KVHA Championship Show. The five point shows give riders the opportunity to show their horses and compete for the honor of high point awards for the year.
At KVHA there is a class for everyone. From the Open Halter class to the 5-Gaited Saddlebred class, as well as open classes for any breed, KVHA is proud to offer over 30 performance classes. There is also a large academy division for those just beginning their show careers.
The Kanawha Valley Horsemen's Association also sponsors an annual Mountain State Charity Show. Like the KVHA's previous Charity shows, this show will serve as a fundraising event to benefit the community. A portion of the proceeds from the 2017 show will again be shared with Kanawha Hospice Care. A portion of the proceeds from the other shows this season will be donated to various local charity organizations such as the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association, Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue, WV Horse Network, the Putnam County Humane Association and the Sojourner Domestic Violence Shelter.
Shows of the Kanawha Valley Horseman's Association are typically held at the Winfield Riding Club in Winfield WV. You can keep up with activities of KVHA on our Facebook page.
