Appleatchee Riders Association is a private membership organization incorporated in 1947 in Washington State for the purpose of promoting fellowship among horse lovers. Activities sponsored to support this goal include performance shows, dressage, hunter/jumper events, schooling shows, gaming events (timed events), reining, team sorting, extreme trail course and team roping events. Horsemanship clinics to improve members' skills are held regularly.
The Association also sponsors 4-H clubs, two WAHSET teams (Washington High School Equestrian Team), a Pony Club, a therapeutic riding program and other programs. Competitive events include both members and non-members. Non-members pay a premium to participate in Association sponsored events.
The Association has made extensive investments in physical facilities that include both indoor and outdoor arenas, barns for stabling members' horses, camping facilities and orchard property. The goal of the Association is to be self supporting financially. A twelve member Board of Trustees manage the Association's daily operations and assets.

It is dedicated to the encouragement, development and promotion of horse related activities that are of interest to its membership and that are supported by member involvement and by efficient use of Appleatchee's resources.
