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 Friday nights before our regular show for all breeds of horses and ponies.  UMBHA is currently the only IBHA Charter Club to offer Cattle classes.
