OTHER GENERAL RULES:

***PLEASE NOTE: Collectibility with be judged at the same time as Breed for All OF Halter classes.  You MUST provide documentation on Each model placed on the table for that model to be judged for Collectibility.  Provide the judge with as much information as possible about the model keeping this info within a 8.5" x 11" area.  Information about your models can be found at http://identifyyourbreyer.com or http://www.stonehorseref.com.  Models without documentation Will NOT be considered for Collectibility.

Workmanship will be judged at the same time as Breed in the AR Halter & CM Halter classes as well, BUT no documentation is required (please, do not display sculptors, painters, etc. of models).

***Another Note - If you assign an "odd" or "lesser known" BREED to your model, DOCUMENTATION should be provided that gives the breed characteristics, coat colors or patterns & any other information that would justify the breed assignment. This info should be kept within a 8.5" x 11" area. Pictures are a plus. This is also a good rule of thumb for models with 'odd or different' coat colors or markings - Show the judge pictures of 'real' horses featuring theses characteristics.

 

-There will be plenty of time for tack changes, however, to keep the show on schedule there is a five minute time limit between performance classes and once a class is called, no entries can be allowed in. So hurry!
