Exhibitions of horses which usually involve competitions in riding, driving and jumping. Individual horse shows may be limited to a particular breed, e.g., quarter horses, Arabians or Tennessee walking horses; or may be open to mixed breeds. There are generally classes for different age and ability groups and contests for hunters, jumpers, ponies, and three and five-gaited horses. Included are organizations that sponsor, organize, hold, promote, sell tickets to and publicize the events; provide information about competition schedules; and/or maintain information about current standings.
