Stalls will be available after 7 p.m. Thursday. Stalls are limited (156) so we cannot offer tack stalls. Stalls will be reserved based on date entries are received by the Secretary. A $ 20.00 per stall deposit is required. $10.00 will be refunded per stall when cleaned and checked. Please call if unable to attend as we do have a limited number of stalls. If stalls fill we will keep a waiting list. Sawdust may or may not be available (depending if it is all gone). Shavings will be available to purchase ahead of time at $ 5.00 per bag.

Entry Fees are $ 5.00 per class except as noted. Post entries are double entry fees. No refunds without vet certificate. Pre-entries due by August 1, 2016. (Note this is an earlier date)

SHOW RULES

The show committee reserves the right to divide, cancel or combine classes depending on entries. If classes are combined, the premiums from the higher staked class will be awarded.

1. Entries in the farm division shall:

have the option of decorating the mane and tail

be shown without scotch bottom shoes

be shown without scotch collars when hitched

2. No horse may be shown in both divisions. Classes 30 & 31 Friday afternoon are open to all.

3. “Junior Exhibitor” classes are open to farm and show

horses, as the decision of the Judge is based on the

performance of the exhibitor, not that of the horse.

4. Exhibitors in the junior division may not show as the

primary handler in the adult division and in the youth division.

5. An exhibitor may show in both farm and show divisions,

provided it does not cause delays in the show.

6. All hitch classes except Junior Exhibitor will be judged on

overall performance at a walk and trot, including driver’s ability to present the team in a collected manner. Horse’s conformation and way of going will be considered.

7. Classes 3-11 and 32 - 44 are for show animals.

8. Haflingers & Pony Drafts may enter the youth classes as well as their own titled classes and classes 30 and 31.
