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 Are Under Construction!
