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.

The BSHA encourages participation; for young riders there is a “Rising Stars” final at the BSHA National Championships Show, all Affiliated Open Classes award a Young Rider special rosette throughout the year, in addition to the Amateur Rider and Novice awards.

The Association is very active and runs a series of Shows including the very popular BSHA National Championships, Member’s Lunches, Judges' Conference, Conformation Training Workshops and Probationary Judges scheme.
