APHA E-SHOWS

Welcome to APHA E-Shows, our online show experience! Periodically, we’ll host an all-breed, virtual horse show where you can compete from the comfort and safety of your own arena. Just film your performance based on the outlined criteria, submit your video, and our judges will take it from there.

Whether you are preparing for an upcoming event or just want to see how your skills stack up against the competition, APHA’s E-Shows are the perfect tool to help you sharpen your performance! When you enter an APHA E-Show, you’ll receive private, constructive, detailed feedback from an APHA-approved judge no matter how you place AND the chance to win money through jackpotted awards.

APHA E-Shows rules are simple and classes easy to enter. All breeds of horses are welcome. Exhibitors must be a current APHA member. All classes are judged according to the current APHA Rule Book. All equipment and attire must be legal, but silver and sequins will not count over a good working outfit.

To get started, select a class below. Pay the entry fee and download the pattern, practice and videotape your go, then return here to upload your video. After judging is complete, you’ll receive an email with detailed feedback on your performance and a check if you place in the payout!
