Good Show Protocol


Our Judges will never over touch your horses


Never Share items at shows with persons from other yards ie buckets, bits, haynets and brushes


If your horse seems "off Colour" do not take them to ANY events


Do not make a fuss of strange horses or allow your horses to "make friends" with strange horses


Bring enough forage / Water and do not allow horses to graze on show grounds and communial areas


Keep space between yourselves prior to classes and in working in areas, rather than standing in a group


Passports, with Vacc records, should be carried at all times during transportation anyway, in the case of inspection.


Its just basic common sense, but all of the above are often seen at events, when the threat of infection doesnt seem as high risk, so do your bit to protect you and yours.
