Welcome to the Great Lakes
GLBA's purpose is to further improve the
breeding, exhibition, sale, and publicity of
buckskin, dun, red dun, and grulla horses -
those over 14 hands, as well as
miniature horses under 38".
GLBA is the Michigan Charter of the
International Buckskin Horse Association
(IBHA), located in Shelby, IN.
Effective April 1, 2017 Approved at IBHA Convention: Registration of a miniature horse in IBHA no longer requires the horse to be AMHA or AMHR registered. However, if it is not registered in one of those associations, a Height Verification form, signed by an AMHA or AMHR Steward attesting the horse is 38" or less, will need to accompany the registration form.
Note: If the animal is under 6 years old, a completed Height Verification form is needed annually prior to showing until the animal reaches 6 years of age. At six years of age, the current verified height will be made permanent.
