Cups must be returned to Donor if Competition therefore lapses. IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ANIMAL OWNERS INVOLVED IN SHOWING ANIMALS AT SHOWS The Irish Shows Association would advise all animal owners who have their animals insured to have the insurance cover extended to cover them while showing animals at shows. We understand that it costs very little or nothing at all depending on who you have insurance cover with.

The reason for us giving you this advice is that if your animal were to lash out and injure someone or damage someone’s property, and it is established that your animal was out of your control at that time, you may be held responsible or partly responsible for any injury or damage caused and end up paying all or part of any settlement reached. DISCIPLINE The Irish Shows Association expects and will insist upon appropriate behaviour from all Exhibitors and others participating in any of the activities at our Member Shows and will not tolerate inappropriate behaviour. Inappropriate behaviour shall include but not be limited to the following:
  • Profanity, coarse or vulgar language or gestures towards judges or other Show officials.
  • Harassment or bullying, including using words or actions that threaten, intimidate or undermine judges or other officials before, during or following Member Show activities.
  • Failure to follow rules and/or obey instructions.
  • Abusing any animal. CHARLEVILLE SHOW SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Ø Obey instructions of Stewards and Safety Officers in the Showgrounds.

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.

Final: RDS Dublin Horse Show, 8th – 12th August 2018. 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.
