About Rabbit Shows

The rabbit show hobby is thriving. The United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe all have bustling rabbit show circuits, where breeders carefully cultivate quality rabbit bloodlines and compete for high honors. But what happens at a rabbit show? Read on to find out.

Rabbit Show

How does a rabbit show work?

At most shows, rabbits are judged solely on appearance. There is a written standard that lists the desirable and undesirable traits of every rabbit breed. Judges are licensed by the country’s national rabbit organization. At a show, these judges compare rabbits to each other and to the standard to determine which animal bests typifies the ideal traits of its breed.

In the US, shows are usually governed by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). At ARBA shows, rabbits first compete against others of their breed, color, sex, and age. The winner of each class moves to a higher level, competing for “Best of Variety.” The winners of each variety (color) within the breed compete for “Best of Breed,” and then the winners of each breed compete for Best in Show.

4-H Rabbit Shows and Fairs

4-H clubs and county fairs often hold rabbit shows. These may or may not be ARBA sanctioned. 4-H shows and fairs run very much like ARBA shows, but they may have slightly different rules. For example, they may only allow people that live in a certain county to enter. 4-H shows and fairs often offer additional contests for youth members, such as showmanship and breed ID.

How do I find a rabbit show in my area?

The best way to find a rabbit show in your area is to contact a local rabbit club or your local 4-H leader. You can find a list of ARBA chartered clubs here: arba.net/clubs.php
