The purpose of our association is to improve and promote the American Quarter Horse breed and stimulate the sale, breeding, exhibition, general use and enjoyment of the Quarter Horse. We encourage educational, social, recreational, and competitive participation. The Maryland State Quarter Horse Association fosters future development of the American Quarter horse through the support of the Youth Association.

MSQHA sponsors horse shows, novice shows, trail rides, competitive trail rides, and clinics.

We offer plenty of events including our annual tack swap, trail rides, competitive trail rides, clinics, and horse shows. At the end of each year, we have a pot luck dinner and meeting. 

Fill out form below if you know someone that shows good sportsmanship qualities for a chance to win an award. This is in memory of the accomplished horseman, Walter Hughes.
