About OIHA

“No hour of life is lost that is spent in the saddle.” – Winston Churchill 

Do you love life in the saddle? Then the Ohio Interscholastic Horsemanship Association is the place for you! We are dedicated to quality equestrian education and competition across Ohio. OIHA focuses on the elements of good horsemanship and teamwork in order to encourage the best in sportsmanship for our riders, coaches, and parents.

OIHA was formed with the purpose of promoting continuous growth of equestrian programs for Ohio high school-aged students. Teams are formed with students in grades 9-12 attending the same school or neighboring schools. Homeschooled students are also welcome to join. Anyone who meets and follows the association rules and regulations found in the OIHA bylaws may participate regardless of race, creed, or national origin.

Founded in Northwest Ohio, OIHA is working to expand throughout Ohio. We are always looking for new teams and districts, so contact us for more information on how you can take part.
