Based in Lexington, KY, the UPHA is an association of professional horsemen and horsewomen who have united to improve the show horse industry and to define and clarify their professionalism within the industry. Since its inception in 1968, the UPHA has expanded into nineteen regional chapters that comprise all fifty states and Canada. The predominant breeds represented by UPHA members are the American Saddlebred, the Morgan Horse, the Hackney Pony and the National Show Horse. From the beginning, UPHA programs have benefited not only the individual horse person, but the entire horse show industry.


The UPHA regularly works with the United States Equestrian FederationThe American Horse Council and the various breed organizations to promote safety, ensure fairness, improve conditions, increase attendance and improve the overall horse show experience for owners, trainers, grooms, and spectators alike. In addition to its core programs, the UPHA seeks to foster communication and mutually beneficial relationships between all participants in the horse show industry.


For over forty years the United Professional Horsemen's Association has given a united voice to the individual trainer while recognizing his/her unique capabilities and talent. We invite you to learn more about UPHA's goals and programs, and would welcome your membership into our association.
