British Show Horse Association

The British Show Horse Association (BSHA) is the governing body for the showing of hacks, cobs and riding horses.



Formerly known as The British Show Hack, Cob and Riding Horse Association, the society was founded in 1935 to oversee the showing and breeding of show hacks and show cobs. It is based in Hitchin.


Riding horses were added to classes in 1983. The association runs a National Championship Show at the end of summer.
