Welcome to the SCRCHA Home page!

The Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association is comprised of a dedicated group of people passionate about horses and the reined cow horse sport. 
The purpose of the SCRCHA is to improve the quality of the western reined stock horse: to perpetuate the early Spanish traditions of highly trained and well reined working cow horses; to promote exhibits and cow horse events and contests in expositions and shows; to promote the training of reined cow horses and to promote interest in reined working cow horses among the younger horsemen in Southern California’s region of the United States; to use and encourage the use of standard rules for holding and judging contests of the reined working cow horse.

We put on 7-8 events per year, including the Sherri Gilkerson Memorial in May and our annual Saddle Shoot Out in October. All of our events are held at various facilities in the Temecula area. This is a fun organization of people that is very welcoming and open to new participants. Come out and watch a show, talk with the list of trainers or others involved. We hope to see you soon!
