On the elevator, a fellow LaQuinta patron asked about my DSH shirt, and was quite impressed to learn that the D, S, and H represent Devereaux Sport Horses. I explained I was there for a horse show, and I was reminded that for those outside the lifestyle, the term that requires explanation is "show." 

"So, like, do you ride them or present them like at a dog show?"
