2018 shows that have affiliations with the Suffolk Horse Society are listed below. Classes at these shows are judged by Suffolk panel judges, and are eligible for the challenge trophies awarded at the annual dinner in November each year.
For entry to In Hand classes horses must be registered in, or eligible for entry in, the pedigree section of the stud book. Winners of classes at these affiliated shows accumulate points which are used to calculate the award winners each October. The points system gives three for a first place, two for a second place and one for a third place. The champion Suffolk at each affiliated show also receives a special limited edition rosette. In addition, champions at the affiliated shows are eligible for the Supreme Suffolk Horse Championship, which will be held at the Spectacular on 2nd September 2018.
Entrants in the Young Handler classes at affiliated shows and at the Suffolk Spectacular are eligible for the Jenkins Family Youth Trophy, which is perpetual but in addition, there is a commemorative brass for the winner to keep.
