The British Show Horse Association (BSHA) —  formerly known as The British Show Hack, Cob and Riding Horse Association — was founded in 1935 by enthusiastic owners and supporters of show hacks and cobs. In 1983, the association added riding horse classes.

Today, the BSHA is the governing body for the showing of hacks, cobs, maxi cobs, riding horses, BSHA hunters, ladies show horses, working show horses and HOYS ridden hunters.

The society annually runs the BSHA National Championship show as well as BSHA northern and southern fixtures.
