Idaho Horse Shows and Events

HorseShowCentral > Shows Calendar > Idaho

Find Idaho horse shows here, with names, dates, location, and types of classes that each of the ID shows offer. Idaho has more horses per population of humans than any other state, Of course part of this statistic is BLM and the six herd management areas of wild horses. Still ownership is high with many households owning several and so of course there are many Idaho horse shows events!

The most popular Idaho horse shows are for Quarter horses (over 50%), then the Paint, Arabian, Appaloosa & Thoroughbred. As far as how horses are used, the highest is riding and showing.

Idaho is one of the 12 states that names a state-horse, which in this case is the Appaloosa. The breed name is derived from a river in the northern part of the state, called the Palouse! It was the Nez Perce Native American tribe who was responsible f or the foundation of this famous breed and they are definitely popular in most Idaho horse shows as well as nationally.
