About Northern West Virginia Quarter Horse Association

Programs and Services

NWVQHA maintains a variety of services to develop, encourage, and promote general membership, youth and amateur programs, and incentives designed to increase participation in shows, competitions, and promotional activities intended to increase awareness and understanding of the value of the American Quarter Horse. To that end, our Board develops and oversees a variety of programs of interest to American Quarter Horse breeders, owners, enthusiasts, and show participants, as well as the horse industry at large. We are committed to working in the best interest of the American Quarter Horse and our membership to deliver the absolute highest quality programs and services based on unparalleled ethics and a dedication to open communication with other local clubs, as well as the national organization.

Partnership with WVU

NWVQHA shows are hosted at West Virginia University’s JW Ruby Research Farm (formerly Sterling Farms) in Reedsville, WV. We believe this state-of-the-art equine facility aligns with our purpose and common goal of promoting the American Quarter Horse with dignity and grace. It is an exceptional show venue that is well-designed and laid out with the comfort and well-being of both rider and horse in mind. The estate has a longstanding history of promoting the excitement and grandeur of the American Quarter Horse and we are honored to partner with West Virginia University in our shared endeavors.
