     damage or loss however caused that may occur to any exhibitor or his employee or to any
     animal, article or property brought into the showground, or whilst entering or on leaving, or
     being carried into or out of the said showground. The exhibitor shall be solely responsible for
     any loss, injury or damage that may be done to, or occasioned by, or arising from any animal,
     article or property exhibited or brought into the showground by him/her and he/she shall
     indemnify and hold harmless the Society from all action, suits, expenses and claims on account
     of, or in respect of any such damage or injury which may be so caused or occasioned.

      classes stated in the schedule. In the event of the death of the exhibitor between the date
      of entry closing and date of the show, the executor of the deceased shall be deemed to
      be the exhibitor.
R10   ENTRY BY MINORS: Entries by persons under 18 years of age shall be accepted only provided
      the entry form is countersigned by the parent, guardian or trustee of the entrant, who shall
      be held responsible for the correctness of the entry and for the compliance with these Show
      Regulations. Any entry made in contravention of this Regulation and inadvertently accepted
      may be cancelled.

      the National Rare and Minority Breeds Show.

    post must be sent by Recorded Delivery. Failure to return trophies by the due date may incur
    a maximum penalty of £100. The Society’s Trophy Registration Number is shown in brackets
    after the name of each trophy in the list of Special Prizes in each section. Exhibitors who wish
    to hold trophies must collect these from the Society’s Offices between 9.00am and 5.00pm
    on each day of the show days to be signed for.

JUDGES:
R31 JUDGES: The Judges are instructed to withhold prizes where the entry is not of sufficient merit,
    and in awarding prizes the Judges are instructed to make their awards according to the
    relative merits of the exhibits for breeding purposes in breeding classes. If in the opinion of the
    Judges any animal appears to be unfit for breeding purposes, the Judges shall be at liberty to
    have the animal examined by one of the Society’s Veterinary Surgeons, whose opinion shall
    be considered final and conclusive, and if he/she so directs, the animal will be disqualified
    from taking a prize which might otherwise be awarded to it. No person other than a Steward
    or authorised Official of the Society shall enter a ring when judging is in progress, nor shall
    have any communication with the Judges during the time of judging, and all exhibitors and
    their agents acting in opposition to this regulation shall forfeit such prize as may be awarded
    to their exhibit.
R32 CHANGE OF JUDGE: Should an exhibit be forward for competition, which was either bred or
    previously owned by the officiating Judge, then a referee may be introduced at the request
    of the Chief Steward of the Section. The onus of a horse being exhibited in a class judged by
    a person who has had a financial interest in the animal or which has stood in his stable etc.
    must be on the exhibitor. The exhibitor will know who is judging from the schedule, whereas
    the Judge will not know which animals are coming before him until he arrives in the Ring. If
    there is an unforeseen change of Judge, then the exhibitor should stand down from the class
    and entry fees will be refunded. EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO INFORM EXHIBITORS OF A
    CHANGE IN JUDGE.
