The United Professional Horsemen’s Association was founded in 1968 in Chicago, Illinois, and was formed to give a united voice to the horse professional to better address concerns and problems that existed within the show horse industry.
Over the years, UPHA has grown to 21 different Chapters across all 50 of the United States and Canada. Chapter 16 services all of Florida, and includes horsemen and horsewomen from all disciplines and with horse interests that include American Saddlebreds, Ponies, Morgans, Friesians, National Show Horses, Arabians and Roadster Horses.
We work together to help not only our professionals, but the equine industry as a whole. Our many programs span the gamut from youth scholarships for the children of active UPHA members, to the UPHA Classics. If you’re a professional, this is your organization. If you’re an amateur, we’d like to reach out a friendly hand and offer our expertise when you’re in need. Let’s all work together to improve our shows and our show horse industry!
