Welcome to the Upper Midwest Buckskin Horse Association!

The Upper Midwest Buckskin Horse Association (UMBHA) is a charter member of the International Buckskin Horse Association (IBHA). The charter was formed in 1990 to promote a family-friendly atmosphere for the exhibition of Buckskin, Dun, Red Dun, and Grulla horses.

We invite everyone to come to our shows and show with us.  Our shows are located at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.  UMBHA and it's members are committed to hosting shows that are high on fun and low on stress.  We offer a family friendly environment and welcome all of our exhibitors with open arms!  This commitment is something that we pride ourselves on!!

We offer 3 shows per year and offer a wide range of classes and have something for everyone.  We have a full slate of IBHA Open, Amateur, Amateur Select, Youth, Miniature Horse and Ranch Horse Classes.  We also have a full slate of All Breed Classes that include All Breed Ranch Horse classes.  UMBHA offers a full show bill of Speed Events on 

Saturday nights after our regular show.  UMBHA is currently the only IBHA Charter Club to offer Cattle classes. 


UMBHA just adopted a Trail Riding Program for our members!  Please see the Forms page for the Trail Riding Nomination Form & Rules and the Trail Riding Log!!

NEW PROGRAM for our youth!  Buckskin Bucks has been approved.  Please look for more details on our Youth page.  

UMBHA is excited to announce that we will be offering Circuit Awards for all classes at our July show.  To be eligible for Circuit Awards, an exhibitor must show both days and under all five judges for each respective class.
