Welcome to the British Show Horse Association website. This Association is dedicated to promoting the breeding and showing of Hacks, Cobs, Maxi Cobs and Riding Horses.

Shows throughout the country, at all levels, hold BSHA Affiliated classes with both Amateur and Open sections; there is usually something for every Competitor.
