Horse Shows by Discipline, Then Which State or Month

Locate Discipline classes at shows, each month and in every state. Disciplines create many types of classes. A competitive discipline is one long practiced, or trained for and other than breed is the most important of categories for those involved in exhibiting.

All disciplines in shows have a following, and most offer state and national awards as well as prizes at any individual event. State championships are the norm, and often there is a world championship to be earned. Knowing the month and state where your Discipline Classes can be found is profoundly useful. Our Calendar search tool is free to anyone who wishes to use it. Or use the one to your right.

Below, and in following pages, HSC lists “the most popular disciplines.” Click on a single discipline and shows that offer such classes, all across the country will display for you.

Under each individual discipline are “Discipline Classes per Month”, throughout the year.. Each month is represented by a month-number, with January being #1, June being #6, etc. And below that are states that offer at least 3 competitions a year that include your favorite discipline.

To locate “Discipline classes per State”, we use the ANSI number for each state rather than the two letter abbreviation. simply hover your mouse over the number to read the URL
