Ontario Reined Cow Horse Association

It is our mission to promote the sport of Reined Cow Horse in Ontario through education, participation, and mentorship. 

The countdown  is on until the final show of the 2019 Season on September 15, which will be immediately followed by our Annual General Meeting, dinner and Awards.  Bring your ideas, your wallet (for some great silent auction items), and your appetite!

ORCHA Annual trail ride will be held on Sunday September 22, be ready to ride out at 10am, potluck lunch to follow.

And of course, please make sure you visit our Sponsor page and support those companies who make our ORCHA shows possible.



2018 Year End Review

2018 was another incredible year for the Ontario Reined Cowhorse Association.  Thank you to all the exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, family and friends who help support our club.  We pride ourselves on being a grassroots, dirt, leather & sunshine kind of organization, but this year our horsemanship (and our prize table) were sure something special.

Steve & JR, showing some speed down the fence!… and the result of that speed… the Champion Intermediate Non-Pro buckle.  Way to go Steve!

Perhaps my favourite pic from the show – Christine with one of her multiple year-end awards, and a rather proud coach Craig.

Prize table – wow!
