Class 79Q RDS BREEDERS CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 QUALIFIER

 

 

 

Class:

 

Open to mares likely to produce performance horses, with an athletic foal at foot. Mares should be registered with an approved studbook or with Weatherby’s General Studbook or Weatherby’s Non-Thoroughbred Register and have recorded breeding. Foal must be by a registered stallion.

 

Aim:

 

To give recognition to breeders who breed from suitable mares to produce top quality foals with performance potential. To encourage the production of quality young stock which might, in time and with suitable nurture, achieve success in various equestrian disciplines. This class aims to serve as an important benchmark for breeders (and the industry at large) to determine the progress being made in the national herd.

 

The Breeders’ Championship is a seminal class for RDS and for the industry in showcasing the quality of equine talent being produced nationally for future domestic and export markets.

 

 

 

Rules:

 

1.     Passports of all competing mares must be brought to the qualifying show for scrutiny by the judges / stewards. If valid passports are not available for inspection at the time of judging, the mare and foal will not be eligible to compete.

 

2.     All mares and foal combinations at both qualifying show and final will be shown in-hand using the triangle format (25m x 40m x 25m). (See guidelines below).

 

3.     Mares and foals competing at the qualifiers and final should be familiar with the triangle format. Mares and foals will have one opportunity to show themselves on the triangle, it is in the interest of the exhibitor to ensure that they are both shown correctly. Exhibitors should ensure that foals in particular are handled and prepared well in advance to perform walk and trot in a balanced and calm manner around the triangle. Exhibits in this class will be viewed on ‘the triangle’ in the order in which they appear in the official DHS Catalogue.

 

4.     Judging will be based on adjudicating the mare as a progenitor of athletic type foals with obvious performance potential.

 

5.     The top three mare and foal combinations at this qualifier will be eligible to enter and compete at the Dublin Horse Show.

Showing on the Triangle (Breeders’ Championship)

 

To encourage uniformity, consistency and time efficiency at both the qualifiers and the final, it is desirable that the presentation of animals at the triangle is properly rehearsed. The following is a guideline for competitors and organisers alike:

 

·          Both mare and foal will be presented before the judges at A where they will be assessed for conformation and movement.

 

·          Both mare and foal should stand square with all four limbs bearing weight.

 

·          The foal should be assessed on the triangle. The mare and foal will be asked to walk and trot around the triangle (25m x 40m x 25m) in a clockwise direction, one round in walk and one round in trot.

 

·          An outer triangle, 3.5m from the inner is advised to help exhibitors keep both mare and foal on track.

 

·          The triangle format allows the judges, who will be positioned at A, maximum advantage to see walk and trot from behind, side profile and in front - allowing them to easily assess freedom of shoulder, use of back, engagement of the hock, tracking up and straightness in both paces.

 

·          Care should be taken that the foal is kept alongside the mare during walk and trot phase going away from and coming back to the judges so that both mare and foal are clearly visible. When the mare and foal are being assessed for movement on the long side of the triangle, the foal should be positioned behind the mare.

 

The judging format will be in operation for the 2017 Breeders’ Championship at the RDS and its qualifiers. Prospective owners/exhibitors are advised to familiarise themselves and their horse with this layout to maximise the art of presentation. Exhibitors should ensure that the foals in particular are well handled and prepared well in advance to perform walk and trot in a balanced and calm manner around the triangle.

 

 

 

 

 

Horse-riding is a dangerous sport and all competitors in Ridden Classes are strongly advised, for their own safety, to wear appropriate head gear which complies with

up-to-date safety standards.
