Showing horses and ponies is an equestrian discipline that any horse owner or rider can participate in. There are ridden showing classes and in hand showing classes where the horse or pony is led around the ring. There are showing classes for all types and ages of horses and ponies and particularly at local level there are often show classes for non-specific types or breeds of horse or pony and even novelty showing classes.
Horses and ponies are judged on conformation, movement and presentation with show classes run at local shows, at county level, up to championship classes such as those at Horse Of The Year Show.
