Indianhead Arabian Horse Society

iahsThe Indianhead Arabian Horse Society was founded in December 1980 in Barron and Eau Claire counties to promote the Arabian horse. Our goals are to stimulate interest in the Arabian horse and to encourage the breeding, exhibiting, use and perpetuation of Arabian and Half Arabian horses. We offer a youth scholarship program to help youth in our area continue their education in an agricultural field. And we offer a therapeutic riding program which allows handicapped children to be like everyone else by competing in classes just for them. Our members also enjoy participating in parades and a courage center.

In addition, the first weekend in June, we sponsor a class A show which draws from a five state area as well as Canada. Our show strives to eliminate the intimidation factor often found at the larger shows.

We are a small group of about 35 people who work very hard to put on this show, but the love of our Arabian horse and the continued friendships with our members is what makes our club a fun place to be! We have a high point system for all levels of competition and we encourage all members to become involved.

When the show starts, we enjoy the exhibitors so much and have developed many friendships, as evidenced by the fact that, even though our show is outside and we get all kinds of weather, our friends just keep coming back year after year! Our club members are the greatest workers, friendly people, and love the Rice Lake weather.
