HorseShowCentral > Shows Calendar > Arabian
Arabian horse shows with event names, dates, location and types of Arabian classes teach of the shows offer.

Arabian shows and classes abound, and the Arabian is often shown in classes in open events, but there are also many breed-specific classes you will want to check out, such as Dressage for Arabs, Equitation, Hunter and Hunter Plsr, Country Plsr or Reining or Trail. The Arabian Costume class is traditional, beautiful and tons of fun. Driving Plsr is a must, but the largest are the Eng. Plsr, Wstrn Plsr and Park classes. There are many All-Arabian and Half-Arabian shows, but this breed shows in many open classes all over the world.

SUMMARY OF ARABIAN HORSE SHOWS NATIONWIDE (for Arabian purebred, half Arabian & Anglo-Arabian horses)

The levels of Arabian Horse Shows can seem confusing, but is actually well-ordered. There are of course tons of local and community shows for the beginning level, then there are many, many class A Arabian Horse shows,open to everyone, that allow one to quality for the Regional Horse shows, which then allow one to qualify for the National shows. There have been National Arabian horse shows for the US and for Canada since 1958.

There are now four separate national Arabian horse shows , for Youth , for the Sport Horse , For Canada, and then the for the US, plus a national endurance or distance competition. The US National Arabian horse shows are held each year in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Many of the Regional championship Arabian horse shows also offer a pre-qualifiying show prior to the beginning of the championship classes to give those who have not qualified a chance to do so.

It has only been since 1998 that a reining association has existed for Arabians,but the ARHA ‘is’ affiliated with the national reining association (NHRA). From the get-go, the format for judging has wisely included style and a certain difficulty of performance and technical skill and this professionalism gained immediate approval of owners, riders and audience.

This is one of the fastest growing disciplines for Arabians at horse shows,and the fact of the Arabian Reining Futurity with its prize money compliments the sheer fun of participating in the discipline.


The athletic abilities of the Arabian as a working horse are evident in the cutting pen, and this discipline added to Arabian horse shows heightens and broadens the depth of the show and the interest of all involved. The conformation of the Arabian lends itself to cow horse work, from flexibility to hock placement ( low to the ground) , to strength of back, loin and stifle which allow a hard stop! Many breeders and owners are sold on the Arab as a gifted cutting horse, so more and more competitions are ‘happening”.


By using our search tool at the top of the page, select Arabian as breed of course, then in the offered disciplines, select halter, or Western pleasure, or any type of class offered at Arabian horse shows, then click to find, and you will be given a list of shows that offer the type of class you are looking for! The success of this endeavor of course requires that the shows who enter ads also take the time to checkmark the disciplines for which they offer classes or the types of classes themselves. Many have done so, and hopefully something so useful to both shows and exhibitors will grow.
