purpose of this organization is to promote continuous growth in programs
fostering horsemanship education, sponsor activities to encourage
interscholastic participation and to have cooperative adult-supervised
leadership (coaching) for all students in grades 6 through 12 who are
desirous to participate regardless of race, creed or national origin and
meet the Association rules and regulations (By-Laws).
Throughout Association leadership and coaching, it is our goal that the
student members derive whatever enjoyment and benefits possible as a
result of participating as riders in horsemanship education programs and
MIHA and Coaches will involve each equestrian student (male and female)
to the extent possible in team competition.
MIHA and Coaches will provide situations where each equestrian team
member can be exposed to cooperative working experience that leads to
common group goals.
MIHA and Coaches will provide each equestrian team member with the
opportunities to experience good leadership, fair play, horsemanship,
sense of honesty, character, pride and good sportsmanship at all times.
MIHA and Coaches will always provide, conduct and host equestrian
interscholastic programs with proper instructions, coaching methods,
conditioning rules, health, safety and welfare of each participant.
