IHA hosts a Western Pleasure Show Series during the three summer months each year at the Bohemia Equestrian Center.
This series allows equestrians of all ages to showcase their horses and riding skills in a friendly, fun and supportive environment. Classes in Halter, Showmanship, In-Hand Trail, Western Horsemanship, Western Pleasure, Trail, Reining and a full slate of Ranch classes are offered in this series.
These stellar halter and performance horses, along with their handlers and riders, get to perform before judges who hold judges cards with the best breed organizations who are experienced in the many facets of western riding. As this is a schooling show, the judges often give the riders tips and encouragement to be better horseman, which in turn helps their equine partners perform their best.
