Breeding / In-Hand Award

A show is a judged event. Shows feature the best specimens of purebred animals in a locality or country. Prestigious shows or those with large purses (prize money) to be won may attract exhibitors from around the world.

Typically, shows are an opportunity for breeders to feature their best breeding stock. Animals compete for the title of Best of Breed or Grand Champion, a distinction which can add significant value to a breeder’s lines. The top prize in a show is usually the title Best in Show or Best (or Supreme) Exhibit in Show.

Historically, horse shows were created to exibit bloodlines of a wealthy breeder or to create funds for a benefit. Today, it is common to use horse shows to promote personal horse business bloodlines and for fun. It is no longer an event for royalty or the wealthy — people from all walks of life are involved in the horse industry and available to compete in open and breed shows.
