Who We Are and What We Do
New Hampshire Horse & Trail Association was established to promote and encourage horse activities in NH
NHH&TA has been in continual operation since it was established in 1945.
NHH&TA oversees a wide variety of horse activities in the State of New Hampshire. A yearly circuit of affiliated horse shows, gymkhanas and trail rides is offered to members as well as to the general public. High standards of good horsemanship, sportsmanship, and friendship are maintained and encouraged.
NHH&TA maintains a rule book under which the horse shows, gymkhanas and trail rides operate. Through the efforts of volunteers who serve as council and committee members and officers, the rule book is kept current and compatible with New England Horsemen’s Council and US E (formerly AHSA). The rule book is designed to provide an atmosphere of safety, sportsmanship and fair play for all who wish to participate.
The Association hosts an annual awards banquet each November to honor the people and horses who have excelled in their chosen disciplines. All NHH&TA members are eligible for awards in the Horse Show, Gymkhana and Trail Ride Divisions, regardless of place of residency. The NHH&TA rule book gives specific qualifications for the divisions.
