Showing is one of the most important aspects of Horse Fable gameplay. Showing is a way to make money and increase a horses level. Showing has several aspects to understand such as show ranks and tiers and benefits to horses and you.


Training and Showing

Training your horse is important for discipline and careers. For discipline shows, the sum of performance stats, gained through training, determines your horses show tier.


Show Tiers

Just like in real life, HoFa has show ranks and tiers. Ranks begin at Foundation and end at Universal with there also being show tiers. A Universal Tier 3 horse is at a higher competition level than a Universal Tier 1 horse. A horse’s show rank is determined by the total of the performance stats (PS) used in the discipline.

Ex. A Show Jumping (SJ) horse with 60 in Speed, 300 in Agility, and 40 in Power (Total 400 in 3 stats used for SJ) will be Local Tier 1.

Sum of performance stats in the discipline to be at each rank and tier are:

Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5
Foundation 30 2,580 6,480 12,980 23,730
Local 330 3,030 7,230 14,230 25,730
State 630 3,480 7,980 15,480 27,730
Regional 930 3,930 8,730 16,730 29,730
National 1,230 4,380 9,480 17,980 31,730
International 1,530 4,830 10,230 19,230 33,730
Elite 1,830 5,280 10,980 20,480 35,730
Universal 2,130 5,730 11,730 21,730 37,730

Showing in disciplines has a cost to enter based on show rank and tier. Higher ranks and tiers cost more to enter but reward higher payouts.


As you move up ranks and tiers placing higher in the show results has many more benefits. Lower ranked shows have fewer losing horses but reward much less. However, in higher ranks and tiers fewer horses will receive payout earnings but those who do are rewarded handsomely.

Cost to enter discipline shows:

Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5
Foundation 10 15 20 25 30
Local 15 20 25 30 35
State 20 25 30 35 40
Regional 25 30 35 40 45
National 30 35 40 45 50
International 35 40 45 50 55
Elite 40 45 50 55 60
Universal 45 50 55 60 65


Show Scoring

Shows are scored based on the primary, secondary, and tertiary stats for the discipline you are showing in. The primary stat used in the discipline counts the most for a show score with secondary and tertiary counting a bit less.

Also important for showing, is a horse being close to its breed standard. Breed standard has some influence on how well your horse scores in a show. So, horses with mostly poor or fair breed standards may not excel as discipline show horses. However, those that do not excel in shows could be used as career horses!


What’s a Good Show Horse?

A good show horse will have as close to excellent BS as possible and high performance stats. A horse with mostly “Poor” for its breed standards will have more reductions in shows than a horse with mostly “Excellent” BS. As a note, horses with higher performance stats tend to place well but also sell well. If you are looking to have horses that you show then sell for profit then training performance stats is a must!

Showing Benefits

Horse Benefits: Points and Levels

Horse points determine your horse’s level and are gained for your horse based on placements in discipline and halter shows and jobs completed in careers. The better your horse places in a show the more horse points it will earn. The point payout is higher for horses in the higher show ranks.

Levels are earned via the points won from shows. Your horse’s level can be viewed on the page below their image. The higher level a horse is the more perks it will receive and the higher the training boost it will give to its offspring.
