The Arabian Horse Association of Eastern Canada was founded in 1955. It is governed by a board of directors elected by its members. The purpose of the club is to promote and co-ordinate the activities of the Arabian and Half-Arabian horse owners of Eastern Canada. It is an affiliate club of Region 18 and the North American Governing organization, the Arabian Horse Association (AHA). The club encourages and stimulates interest in the outstanding qualities of the Arabian horse by giving its members the opportunity to share and showcase their love of the Arabian while having fun. To be a member you don’t have to own an Arabian or Half-Arabian horse, you just need an appreciation and love for the breed.
