Welcome to the the DC Area Horse Show Association!
The DCA is a local incentive based program for VHSA Associate H/J Shows that encourages competition and good ALL AMERICAN fun!
How does the DC Area HSA work?
- We follow VHSA rules for classes and show venues.*
- One participating VHSA Associate show is sanctioned each weekend day from April through October
within 50 miles of another.
- Our points are the same value as VHSA, but are multiplied by the number of entries in each class. There are no additional points for Champion & Reserve.
- Points follow rider for greater member flexibility and participation.
- "End-of-Year" Banquet is free for showing members.
- All show venues must be VHSA Associate sanctioned, but DCA members DO NOT have to be VHSA members.
Why should I join?
- Only $15 per year
- Generous prizes through six places for all divisions
- Beautiful ribbons through sixth place for all divisions
