VIAHA provides a focus for Arabian enthusiasts on the Island. We present the Island Classics, an all-Arabian horse show which is a qualifier for the Region 17 Championship Horse Show.
All breeds are welcome at the various Open Shows hosted by VIAHA on the south Island, including the Saanich Fair Horse Show.
Club members can accumulate points towards the year-end Hi-Point Awards in a variety of divisions.
You do not have to own an Arabian to join in the fun!
