15 GRAND PARADE and BEST IN SHOW. All Champions and Reserve Champions in the Horse and Pony section
   showing classes will participate in the Grand Parade. Only Champions will go forward to the ‘Best in Show’.
   ALL Side Saddle riders and Fancy-Dress competitors are invited to take part in the Grand Parade.
16 Although a Public Address System is provided, the show has no responsibility for ensuring sound coverage
   across the whole showground. It is therefore each competitor’s responsibility to ensure they present
   themselves and their exhibit in the ring at the time of their chosen class.
17 A fall of horse or rider in any of the ridden classes will result in elimination of the rider from that class. The
   rider is strongly advised to see the Doctor before continuing to compete in any other classes. This rule will
   apply in 2019 to all ridden classes except those affiliated to British Show jumping, whose own rule on this
   subject will apply in these British Show jumping classes. (213:1 One fall eliminates horse and rider. The rider
   may not attempt another fence but must leave the arena immediately, mounted or dismounted. 213:3 The
   first fall of the horse and/or rider after entering the arena before completing the course incurs elimination in
   any competition.)
18 REFUNDS: Refunds of entry fee in showing classes will be considered providing an appropriate veterinary
   certificate is made available. The show reserves the right to retain £2 per animal to cover admin costs.
19 All competitors, when riding on the showground must wear the relevant and clearly visible back number.
20 Dogs are not encouraged in the horse area and must be kept on a short lead.
