ACHA Chapter Spotlights
One of the most valuable things about national convention is networking and sharing ideas about how each chapter gets involved in the horse industry, networks with industry professionals, raises funds for club travel, and impacts their local community. Each month we will feature local chapters on the website and on social media so this valuable sharing of information goes on year round.
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College is nestled in the quaint town of Tifton, GA. Our Collegiate Horsemen’s members are actively involved whether it be helping grill at the Ag Club picnic, recruiting prospective students at Stallion Day, or helping put on our monthly jackpot barrel races. At our meetings we have hosted members of the Georgia equine commission, renowned horse trainers, farriers, and also equine acupuncturists. Once a year, our members are given the opportunity to go on an industry tour. This past year we traveled to Ocala, Florida to exhibit various thoroughbred and race horse facilities. Along with hosting our monthly jackpot barrel racers, we also host ropings and NBHA shows. These events are premier opportunities for members to fundraise for national convention.
