Is there any safe sort of hormonal manipulation that is safe to use on stallions? I've heard of people using progesterone implants, but I have no idea how safe and effective this is. Where would you get progesterone implants anyways? Could the stallion still be used for breeding during this time? How long does it work for?

I don't know that I would consider using any sort of hormones on a stallion to try to calm his libido during showing.
There are quite a few different supplements on the market that are used as calming agents that do not have long term effects. And a lot of them are herbal, so they are not considered drugs and are legal to use for showing. You might want to try that route first.
I just personally wouldn't want to be messing with anything that could interfere with my stallion's ability to breed.

I would not use any " hormonal Manipulation" on a stallion not if you want to have him be a breeding stallion..

My suggestion is that if he is not behaving himself at the shows.. You need to go back to the basics and teach him he needs to behave... when it is okay to talk to the mares and when it is not... when it is okay for him to display breeding behavior and when it is not..

Hormonal therapy is a short cut for maybe a one time situation but it does not take the place of training and good manners

If you are not going to use him as s stallion then geld him....
