American Collegiate Horsemen’s Association (ACHA) unites collegiate horsemen of all levels and disciplines through the promotion of leadership, education, service and national affiliations. ACHA hosts a national convention each year to bring student and chapter members together to learn more about the horse industry and develop their leadership skills through tours, panel discussions and other networking opportunities. The organization also recognizes outstanding chapters and students through annual awards.
ACHA welcomes students from any four-year or two-year equine programs in the country. If you would like more information about the organization, the benefits of membership or how to start a local chapter, visit our Membership page for more information.
“That’s all folks” your 2022-2023 National American Collegiate Horsemen’s Association Executive board is signing off 👋
All and all we had a great year serving as your executives this term, I think we can all say we are super excited to see what the new 2023-2024 board has in store for you this upcoming season. The friendships we have made, the bridges we have connected, and the people we have (hopefully) inspired has made this season worth while. We had a great season but the next season is going to be even BIGGER! 🙌

You all were a great group! Stay in touch and let us know how we can help you in the future 🤩
WHAT A FUN DAY!! First of all we would like to give a huge thank you to @wvueq and Crystal Smith for being an amazing host and allowing us to be at their beautiful facility! Also thank you to Modern Homestead for a delicious lunch this afternoon. Now let’s get into it: we saw everything from saddlebreds, equine massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture. Members got the chance to ask questions and be hands on even attempting a little acupuncture! Some members even got the chance to test ride a saddlebred which was super cool! Thank you so much to everyone who has made this possible and a huge thank you to our national advisor and national officer board for working all year to make this happen 👏 we cannot wait to see what next years team accomplishes! Stay tuned for new officer announcements tonight at our delegates meeting! #achaconvention #acha #wvueq #wvu #saddlebred #americansaddlebred #equinechiropractic #equinemassage ... See MoreSee Less
