 Welcome to the MPHA. The Mountain Pleasure Horse is the oldest gaited breed in North America.  The MPH has been proven to be the parent breed of all North American gaited breeds including; Rocky Mountain, Tennessee Walking Horse, American Saddlebred and Kentucky Mountain Horses. We are a non-profit organization registered in the state of Kentucky and dedicated to the promotion, breeding and development of the Mountain Pleasure Horse. Our goal is first to preserve the bloodlines of the Mountain Pleasure Horse, then to build their population. We issue registration papers not to sell these horses, but to certify they meet the stringent criteria of the Mountain Pleasure Horse Association (MPHA) and to encourage the breeding of the rare and endangered Mountain Pleasure Horse. 

Our new website was created to offer more up to date information for our members as well as preserving the historical information about this heritage breed.  Thank you for visiting our web site. We hope you will check back often as we will make updates frequently.
