The Pacific Coast Horse Show Association (PCHA), a non-profit corporation, has as its main purpose the promotion and development of the sport of horse showing, primarily in the Hunter/Jumper and Western disciplines. The PCHA office computes points in many divisions offered at PCHA-sanctioned shows for members and horses that are registered with the association. Every January, at the PCHA Annual Awards Banquet, some 300 Year End Championship Awards are given. It is a well-respected association which draws many riders every year to compete for the year-end awards. They approve about 150 shows per year.
