2023 IBHA Convention will be held March 22-25 in South Bend, Indiana


Each year, the IBHA hosts a National Convention to address the business of the association.  Committees made up of members and executives review and vote on new rule proposals.  We hold many educational seminars and meetings, most of which are open to all IBHA members.  In addition to the meetings, a yearly banquet is held to award the Honor Rolls, Reserve Honor Rolls, Supreme Champions, and Superior awards.  A scholarship auction is held and scholarship recipients are announced at the banquet.  The Hall of Fame induction ceremony also takes place at the convention.


We are excited to announce that Dr Rebecca Bellone, Director of Veterinary Genetics Laboratory at UC Davis, will be working with IBHA to conduct a study that will help us to best use DNA testing for horse eligibility in the future. Dr Bellone will present a zoom seminar at the Convention to lay out the study and answer questions. Plan to attend to see how to get your horse enrolled!
