Horse shows have a season and at the end, there is banquet to celebrate and confer year-end awards. These are formal affairs, and since the food is pretty good, the ranks of horse husbands in attendance swells considerably.

Years ago the term "Christmas show" would imply some kind of singing, dancing, or play-acting. By now of course I know "horse" is implied in any show.

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?"
