A Special Message
H’elene Dieck - GHRA President
We cordially invite you to attend the pinnacle event of 2024, the Gypsy Horse Registry of America North American Championship Show. As the first registry to host championship level, gypsy and gypsy cross shows in North America, your attendance as a competitor or audience member will be a valued show of support.
Our focus at GHRA is to support our members so that collectively we can preserve and respect the rich cultural heritage of our breed and the people who came before us.
We believe that only through active collaboration with all of our members, global breed experts and admirers can we achieve our ultimate goal of keeping this breed aligned to the hallmark conformation and disposition standards these exceptional horses possess. We’ll accomplish this goal through socialization of the breed and education in history and breeding techniques.
We listened to our members and now we have delivered. We are hosting this show out of the love and admiration of the Gypsy horse to celebrate the best in the breed and best in class competition. If you are looking for a world-class show on all levels, with an environment that encourages and celebrates the exhibitors and Gypsy horses themselves, we are planning one heck of a show for you.
All event information will be updated on this event website. I look forward to seeing you in September.
