-- Celebrating 35 years! --


In 1980 a group of trainers and riders from northeast Ohio founded the Ohio Professional Horsemen’s Association, dedicated to serving the needs of professional horsemen in their area. Gabor Francia-Kiss, Laddie F. Andahazy, Hugh Kincannon, Arsia Ardalan, and Howard Lewis are among the professionals instrumental in establishing the association.

Today the OPHA has more than 430 members consisting of professionals, amateurs, and juniors. The association puts on two triple point horse shows, one in the spring and one in the fall, and also sanctions more than 85 other shows in Ohio and the surrounding states. Members competing in these shows can earn points toward year-end awards in 34 different divisions, which are presented at the annual fall banquet. The association also publishes two issues of the OPHA News Magazine every year.

The OPHA is proud to support the charity Horses for Heroes at Fieldstone Farm, Petie the Pony at Victory Gallop, Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center and the Chagrin Valley PHA Horse Show Endowment Fund.  Read more...

Thank you to the trainers and exhibitors who came to our Spring Festival Horse Show. The show grounds were beautiful and the crew was outstanding. We thank them for all their long hours and hard work to make our show special. We would also like to thank our show manager, Danny Moore for his hard work and keeping things running smoothly.

Please check the sponsorship page. We are off to a good start and we thank those who have donated so far this year.

Trainers, make sure you are an OPHA member and encourage everyone in your barn to become a member, nominate your horses and ponies.
