The Line Up




Do you want to actively support and promote the sport of horseback riding in our community so that children and adults can continue to participate in and enjoy local shows? Serving as a KVHA Board Member is a great way to contribute to these efforts.
Elections for Board Members will take place in December, and Nomination Forms will be sent to all eligible voting KVHA members in November. All Board members must be members in good standing of KVHA at the time that they are elected.
KVHA holds meetings in South Charleston on the second Monday of each month, and Board Members are expected to not only attend those meetings but also help at shows and in other ways as needed. Terms of service on the Board are 3 years.
If you are interested, please contact President Bev Allen or Secretary Lanette Anderson.

Sponsorship Opportunity





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.

Kanawha Valley Horsemen's Association

Our Association

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.


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.
