Bareback Shows?

I searched threads in this forum and couldn't really find anything... Is there such thing as a bareback class in any show circuit? I want to say I heard about something like that at an open show or something? Just curious since I seem to do better bareback much of the time, and since my health has been taking roller coaster dives it's a lot easier for me to stick with bareback for now since I don't have to worry about handling a saddle and my horse can feel me better so it's less strain on parts of me that may be hurting. Just curious if there's anything that we may be able to do with it, even just pleasure classes or something. I would be 100000000% open to bareback dressage or trail if it exists, but I doubt it!

I have been to a few small schooling shows where there are bareback "fun" classes, including the dollar bill class.
I can't say I have heard of bareback dressage classes or bareback trail. But I would certainly call the show office and check if it is a small local show, you never know!

Around here I only show in the fair - but we have bareback equitation, and then of course the fun one - ride-a-buck!

Also kinda wondering if any shows in my area would even allow bareback in gaming! I don't even care about increasing my horse's value with shows at this point (aside from just becoming an all around better mount of course), I just want a goal to work toward and it's more difficult to do when my western saddle is heavy as heck and I don't have an English saddle that fits my guy for Dressage. Once everything settles down, if it ever does, I would love to take a few lessons but that's not feasible financially right now. Any other goal suggestions are great and welcome as well!

My fair also has a trail course - which we can do bareback. I've never really heard of anything else besides what is at my local fair - but it is still fun!
I have done home jumping bareback - set up some makeshift jumps and went over bareback - pretty fun!
