The Idaho Arabian Breeders Association was formed in 1992 to meet the needs of Arabian horse breeders, professional Arabian horsemen, and Arabian enthusiasts. We have grown steadily since that time, offering co-op advertising for members and member referral services through clinics, open horse shows, and public education.
We were the proud co-sponsors of the 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 American Diabetes Association Horse-A-Thon, with all proceeds benefiting the American Diabetes Association. In 2000 & 2001, we held another benefit ride, Hoof It For A Cure!, to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. In 2002, 2003 & 2004 it became The Diabetes Ride to benefit Humphreys Diabetes Education Center & Camp Hodia. The IABA has a booth annually at the Idaho Horse Expo and/or Horse Affair where the general public can meet the Arabian horse. Additionally, each fall we host the Idaho All Arabian Country Classic Horse Show for purebred and half-Arabian horses. Emphasis is on Amateur handlers and owners are encouraged to get in the ring and enjoy the fun.
The Country Classic is also our opportunity to showcase the stallions that have been nominated to the Idaho-Bred Arabian Stallion Futurity. During the show, the nominated offspring from these stallions compete for special trophies and cash prizes. IABA also offers a silent-bid stallion service auction on some of these fine stallions, with proceeds going to support club activities. Check out the list of nominated stallions and join the excitement with your own foals.
The IABA organizes many fun events for its members. From relaxed potluck dinners before each meeting, to trail rides in Idaho's scenic outdoors, members have the chance to socialize and have a good time, while promoting their horses and making new friends. Ownership of Arabian horses is not a requirement for membership and we always welcome new members or anyone with an interest in promoting or learning more about Arabian horses.
