Alexander City Horse Riding Club (ACHRC), originally established in 1963, held horse shows, ropings and trail rides.  The Club became dormant for a number of years before it was reopened in 1989, with Mr. Nick Fuller as President.  The current President, Mr. Jimmy Avery. took office in 1991.  The Club's first show season (1990) ACHRC shows were held at the Rockford Arena, in Hissop, AL, while the Club's arena was under construction in the Charles E. Bailey Sportplex.  The Club's first horse show held at their ACHRC arena, was on April, 13, 1991 and the last, an East Alabama Horseman's Association season closer show was held on August 12, 2023.  Property was purchased later in 2023 and plans and preparations are under way for the new facility.  In the meantime, the 2024 ACHRC horse shows will be hosted at the Walkabout Ranch Arena in Newsite, Alabama.    

The Alexander City Horse Show Club is for horse enthusiasts of all ages. 

The Club currently  hosts horse shows for members and nonmembers to participate.  New members are always welcome!
