THE BRITISH SHOW HORSE ASSOCIATION is the governing body for the Showing of Hacks, Riding Horses, Cobs, Maxi Cobs, Hunters, Ladies Show Horse, Working Show Horse and breeding classes. We are the home of the Professional, Amateur and Home Produced competitor with equine shows throughout the country, at all levels, holding BSHA Affiliated classes with something for everyone. For those wishing to dip their toe into showing with their horse for the first time with the BSHA, the new Rising Star qualifiers welcomes newcomers to showing culminating with their own Finals at the National Championship Show in September


WE will promote the breeding the showing of all Equines that are true to type and fit for their purpose with particular emphasis on the Hack, Cob, Riding Horse and Hunter. WE will do this by encouraging learning across all our membership through the on-going training of our judges, the dissemination of knowledge and information to our members and by promoting breeding to type. WE will put on our own shows and encourage other shows to be run in accordance with our rules to ensure that there is a consistent application of our governance rules and a transparent method of judging. WE will encourage mutual respect amongst all our membership and bring back the enjoyment of showing. WE will support every member to achieve their own goals and celebrate their success. WE will uphold strong values on the welfare and well-being of all equines. Equine obesity will be actively discouraged and we will take action against those using prohibited substances or undertaking other abuses. WE will not tolerate abuse of our members or judges through social media or other means and will remove membership from those who do. WE will maintain, progress and strengthen our procedures to provide a robust governance system. WE will promote our sport to new members and encourage a broader understanding of the unique heritage of our equine types and breeds.
