The United States Sport Horse Breeders Association (USSHBA) was created to strengthen the presence and recognition of breeders throughout the US sport horse community. Founded in 2012, the USSHBA received approval as an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit in 2014. The USSHBA is designed to serve as a united voice available to sport horse breeders within all registries and disciplines in matters of sport governance, and as a bridge connecting breeders to each other and to owners, riders, and trainers across the national equestrian sport.
