About Region 5

The Arabian Horse Association's Region 5 encompasses Alaska, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana.

Region 5 has earned the respect of Arabian horse competitors across the country. Whether for show, endurance or dressage, horses from the Pacific Northwest are among the best in the nation.

The quality and caliber of our Region 5 horses are evident by the results of highly competitive shows such as the U.S. Nationals, Canadian Nationals, and Scottsdale.

Haley Fryrear - Co-Director

haley fryrearI am Haley Fryrear, I am a 16-yr. old Jr at Lincoln Hill High School. I currently own 3 horses and compete at 4-H, open and A circuit.  In addition to being this year’s Region 5 Co Director I am also the Vice President for my 4-H club. I want to pursue career in farrier/ hoof care. I began showing when I was 18 months old, riding in my first leadline class. I enjoy riding and competing in many events – saddleseat, hunter, western, jumping, dressage, reining, cows and driving. My mom and grandma have been great supporters for my horse and showing.
