Mid-America Horse Show Association, incorporated in 1939, is a 501(c)(7) non-profit organization pledged to providing an environment for members to fully realize and enjoy their involvement with American Saddlebred horses, Hackney ponies and Roadsters through competitions, education and other equine related activities.

Mid-America is one of the largest charter clubs of the American Saddlebred Horse Association with more than 350 members, who are owners, trainers, exhibitors and admirers of these horses and ponies, as well as riders of Saddle Seat Equitation.


The organization produces three shows a year and oversees a regional circuit of 25 affiliated A, A/B and B rated shows in Illinois and surrounding states where members earn points toward year-end awards. 


Mid-America is a charter member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) and is affiliated with the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), the Horsemen's Council of Illinois, and supports the American Saddlebred Museum.
