Showing your Missouri Fox Trotter

Competing with your Missouri Fox Trotting Horse allows you to showcase the teamwork you’ve developed with your horse as well as demonstrate the versatility of our amazing breed. Missouri Fox Trotters are succeeding in open breed competitions in many areas: trail, endurance, roping, ranch horse, field trial, jumping and dressage. Many compete in barrel racing, cowboy mounted shooting and many other exciting events, even mounted archery!

The MFTHBA has partnered with several organizations to recognize the achievement of registered Missouri Fox Trotting Horses. Many of these organizations offer special awards and recognition programs. To learn more, visit our Partner Organization page.

Shows that include Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Class can also participate in the MFTHBA Sponsored Buckle Series Program!  This program allows local show managers to develop a high point program for their exhibitors to recognize their accomplishments.  Learn more about the program HERE.

The MFTHBA and its affiliates sponsor breed shows throughout the year. Check out the general guidelines for the Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity  and the Show and Celebration.
