HorseShowCentral > Shows Calendar > Nevada

Find Nevada horse shows here, with names, dates, location, and types of classes that each of the NV shows offer. Nevada is well known for both wild Mustangs and for the number of working ranches & farms the size of which can be rather large, with the. large area of dry rangeland in the state, used for grazing.

Many ranchers have large allotments for grazing because of BLM or Forest service which have been included in their acreage. The ranches favor the Quarter Horse to a very large degree, while Mustangs, donkey or mules are much smaller in number. Yet many of the light horse breeds are also represented in the state and a nice percent are involved in horse shows and events.

There are equestrian centers in Nevada for horse shows, breed shows, hunt jump, and dressage and The National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, in Reno, is one of the most prestigious of horse shows events in the Western performance industry. There Rodeos and expos throughout the state, including the Wild Horse and Burro expo in Minden. And of course trail riding is popular in scenic Nevada, especially in the southern part of the state.
