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.

MFTHBA members can also earn recognition through our National High Point Award program. Exhibitors competing in MFTHBA-sponsored shows, which take place all over the U.S., can earn points in a variety of classes. Winners are recognized as high point champions.

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.
