Canadian Horse Breeders Association
The breed that is fast becoming a breed for the future.
Making horse lovers' dreams come true across North America!

Welcome to the official site of the Canadian Horse Breeders Association

The CHBA has been working since 1895 to preserve and improve the Canadian horse. The legacy, passed down from our ancestors, is well worth the effort of preserving for future generations.

The CHBA represents more than 900 members across North America.

Thank you for your interest in the Canadian horse, and we hope you enjoy your visit to our site. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated.
The Canadian Horse Breeders Association was granted a federal charter and was incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act. Its mandate is to monitor registration, identification, and the keeping of the stud book for Canadian horses. Additionally, it looks after grading. The maintenance of the genealogy books has been entrusted to the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation.

The Association, headquartered in Québec, has members across North America and is administered by a Board consisting of nine (9) directors: six (6) from Québec, one (1) from Ontario, and two (2) to represent Western Canada, the Maritimes and the United States. 

The day to day operations are governed by the Statutes and Regulations of the Association. These are available online or at the CHBA.
