I go to the Shows in my area when ever they come up. But normaly its just my foals /Colts. So I dont mind showing them in the gelding classes as I am not getting points for it. But I would like to show my Arabian Stallion... But there are no classes for it.
Is there a reason for this?
Or do they just not care?

Ask your show management :) We have 4 ACS shows here in Alabama and will have 5 next year, we always offer Stallion classes. Granted they are usually the smaller classes but I have see stallion halter and SHIH classes with as many as 4 or 5 stallions. You might try asking if they would be willing to add the class if you could find x number of horses to enter it. There are definitely no ACS rules against having them.

Just from the shows I have seen around here (which isn't a lot) I don't see any stallion classes either. I guess the liability? It's a shame though. IT is a good way for someone new in showing (like myself) to get their. and the horses', "feet wet" before big shows.

If the open shows are put on by a 4H club, they may not allow stallions at all due to liability issues.

(well *that* was weird! edited to delete code)

Here are the state guidelines on this issue. Stallions are not
permitted in 4-H shows. If a 4-H club conducts an open show
and includes stallion classes, they must be conducted/sponsored
by some other organization clearly identified on the show bill.
However, the bottom line is, for safety and prudent risk
management, we should NOT be offering stallion classes in open
shows conducted by 4-H clubs where there will be youth present
and showing. The risk is too high!

I wouldn't imagine it would be much different for other US 4H groups.

Yes there is a difference with 4H shows and most local show organizations won't let a junior under 18 show a stallion. The ACS shows however, are run under AHA auspices and here at least, stallions are allowed and encouraged. My daughter at 15 showed Jasoor the last show we attended and he behaved better for her than he did for me!.. the brats!

True, they are limited.
I have tried contacting the show manager but they wont get back to me.
It's just a bummer because i do have a nice stallion but they only have maybe 2 or 3 halter classes a purebred arabian can show in anyway.

The reason is - no entries in past! The shows in the last few years have got to make decisions on what is to stay and go. If no one shows, the best at this point is combine them - stallion/geldings. Then see how that goes. Like the Sport Horse and dressage classes. No entries, these will go. To pay a judge to come in to show just for those classes alone, its not worth it if no one shows up. Also I think most are not showing halter due to past lack of entries. To win your class and be the only one in it does not really mean much unless you want to just collect trophies. Also if a money class, you have to have more then two or three in the class in order to win a payback. The best I can say at this point, is contact the show committee. Yes, I fear alot of them don't bother to call back either.

Ok, lets see how far I get in responding here (hangs up). In all truth, I don't know a horse show that doesn't take sponsors for classes. IF we didn't have them we probably would not even be able to put on a show. Bless these sponsors! But even with a sponsored class, no entries. Most are combing all ages for like mares . Stallions are also being grouped together with geldings. Now with our Community shows, the classes seem to be growing.
