Method of Judging                  (in-hand classes)

10 points system with half-points
Type, head and neck, body and topline, legs, and movement will
each be awarded points from 1-10 by each of five judges. The total of
points will be divided by the number of judges to give a score out of 50

for the horse. In the event of a tie for, the higher place will be given to the horse with the most points for type. If there is still a tie the higher place will be given to the horse with the most points for movement. Failing a decision on either of these, one judge chosen by ballot will name his preference. 1st and 2nd places horses of each class qualify for their respective championships.

 

 In-hand Championship            c) Open Method

The Gold, Silver and Bronze medal winners will be selected from amongst all the horses which have qualified in their respective classes for each championship.

The number of horses qualified from each class will be officially announced by the show organizer in the schedule and the show catalogue.

    1. 1. The Championships will be judged as follows: a. All the horses qualified for the championship will enter the ring and line up according to the numerical order of their catalogue numbers.
    2. b. The horses will be judged individually, standing and trotting.
    3. c. Each judge will nominate his choice for gold silver and bronze medals together at the same time, from amongst all the horses qualified for the championship.
    4.  

Points will be given to the nominated horses as follows:

  • • A horse nominated by a judge for Gold Medal will receive 4 points.
  • • A horse nominated by a judge for Silver Medal will receive 2 points.
  • • A horse nominated by a judge for Bronze Medal will receive 1 point.

The Gold Medal will be awarded to the horse with the highest number of championship points.

The Silver Medal will be awarded to the horse with the 2nd highest number of championship points.

The Bronze Medal will be awarded to the horse with the 3rd highest number of championship points.

In the case of a tie, the Rules for Ties in championships will be followed.

The judges will not discuss the horses.

2. A fourth horse will be selected, which will become the Bronze medal winner should one of the three medal winners be disqualified. If this exhibit is not apparent from the voting papers, the judges will be asked to nominate one. This horse will not be announced. In the event that two or more of the medal winners are disqualified, no further substitution will be made.

3. All horses that qualify for their respective Championships must take part in the Championship. Unless a certificate from the DC veterinarian is produced, failure to compete will disqualify the horse from the show, with its record of score and class placing being deleted and the horse being disqualified from showing for the period of one year as from the date of the show. In the event of a disqualification, horses placed behind the disqualified horse will move up a place in the class. Should a horse be sent out of the ring by the judges or taken out by the handler for any reason, it will be deemed to have taken part in the championship.

4. In Title and A shows all horses that qualified for their respective Championship must remain at the showground until after their championships.
