Catalogue Entries - CLOSED

All pre-paid entries appear in our catalogue & are welcome to advertise their horse as being for sale. Pre-entered horses for sale are listed on our sales page using the information you supply on your entry.

Commentary

We've taken on board your feedback so our 16' event will now commentate all details provided by pre-paid entrants while their horse is in the arena & we'll do our best with entries on the day!

Presentation

Numbers provided on the day. Horses must be presented plaited, sound & injury free in a *plain* snaffle bridle. Open fronted boots are permissable on front legs but no boots or bandages are acceptable on hinds. Handler & assistants should wear whites - ie, white hoodie, poloshirt or collared shirt (tie optional) teamed with white trousers or jeans.

We do appreciate white is the least compatible colour for wearing around horses! However history behind breed shows spans hundreds of years & as with many equestrian events we follow the dress code.

Arena

Entrants are assessed individually within a mesh frame of approx 50m x 20m by two judges who will confer. The jumping lane consists of three fences set on the left rein - distances & heights are detailed below. If you feel your horse will better showcase over a higher final fence, please indicate this to the judges on stand up. Where evident this will not benefit your horse, fences will politely remain at maximum height.

Distances in metres

PONIES - 3.0 | 3.0 | 6.20 | 6.60 - Max height 1.10m
HORSES - 3.0 | 3.0 | 6.60 | 7.10 - Max height 1.20m

Evaluation

Lead your horse into the arena & stand him side-on to the judges for conformation assessment. The judges will advise you when to let loose your horse & will indicate to the arena team when to open the jumping lane. Fences begin as small cross poles to encourage your horse to understand the distances, increasing in height when indicated by the judges. Our arena team are experienced in guiding your horse forward but won't chase on or touch your horse. When indicated, re-catch your horse & walk round the arena until indicated to leave.

Scores

Each horse is individually evaluated & scored by two conferring judges over the set criteria below.
Conformation | Canter | Technique (x2) | Scope (x2) | Attitude (x2) | Reflexes (x2) || TOTAL

Results

As each age section completes, the score sheets are totalled. Given the confined format of the event, only the top six horses return. Please walk a considerate distance from each other as placings are announced. Placings are in reverse order & do not change irrespective of behaviour during line up, results or prize giving. Horses are welcome to remain in the arena for photographs.

Score Sheets

We are unable to give out score sheets on the day - they are required to update our website on the night. If you would like your score sheet posted to you please bring a stamped, addressed envelope with your horse(s) names written clearly on the reverse. Apologies in advance they will take several weeks to arrive!
