Arapahoe County Fairgrounds
      Aurora, Colorado
GENERAL INFO / RULES:
WHEN:

Saturday, September 14-15, 2019. Doors will open at 8:00 AM for setup. Judging will start promptly at 9:00 AM.

WHERE:

Arapahoe County Fairgrounds, Exhibition Hall - West Wing in Aurora, CO.

Aurora, CO 80016

No smoking or alcohol or pets are allowed in the show all. A map to the site location can be found on the show
website, www.thejennifershow.net

Lunch – As food venues by the hall are slim to none, we will be providing complimentary lunch both days. A
pizza delivery is planned for one day and something like subs for the other. This lunch will be planned around
the amount of showers we have. If you’ve brought the entire family, we’ll need you to chip in a little and notify
us of the extra mouths so we can order appropriately. We will also be providing sodas and water.

Snack Table – In 2016 the savior of all was the pot luck/goody corner. We’d like to make this a tradition! We
encourage entrants to bring their favorite edibles to share, whether it’s a bag of snacks or a full dish.

RULES/INFO:

Seating            -   Tables will be assigned on first come/first serve basis to entrants as soon as entry form/fee
                       is sent in. Please look for your name at your assigned table number to make sure you’re
                       not at someone else’s place. We will have a copy of the table layout at the show for
                       convenience.

Class Limits       -   Zippo! The more the merrier. We reserve the right to make an exception to this in
                       performance classes. This will be a Jennifer Buxton and her Performance Judge call and
                       will only be enacted if the show is being held up. Having said this, we do ask that you
                       please consider how much you can handle at one time.

Breed Limits       -   A piece can only be shown as one breed. If you are unsure about a breed assignment, our
                       judges are super friendly and knowledgeable and are happy to help assist before the class.

Classes            -   Judges/show holder reserve the right to split, cancel, or combine classes as they deem
                       necessary.

Judge Courtesy     -   Please refrain from talking to a judge while they are judging. Judges will be happy to
                       explain placings after a class, but their decisions are final. Please be polite and courteous
                       and remember that you are paying for their opinion (even if you don’t agree with it). Please
                       don’t crowd rings that are being judged or loom over a judge’s shoulder during judging.

                                                                                                            Page: 3
Shower Courtesy -     NEVER touch or pick up a model without the owner’s explicit permission. Be aware of
                      your surroundings. Accidents do happen, but be careful so you aren’t the cause of one. If
                      you break or damage an item of someone else’s, be prepared to pay for it.
                      Unsportsmanlike conduct, harassment of judges and/or show staff, or offensive behavior
                      or language will NOT be tolerated. Anyone exhibiting these behaviors will be kicked out
                      of the show hall without a refund.

Cancellation/
Refund Policy     -   Once your entry is received and processed, there are no refunds.

Tags/Horse Lists -    We will be implementing another innovation for our Colorado area, though other regions
                      are already utilizing the technology. We used “Show Helper” in 2016 – a program designed
                      by Jennifer Buxton’s son Ryan to format our electronically entered results as we judged.
                      We learned what worked and what did not. The biggest part of the “did not” was manually
                      entering the horse lists into the system. This is a lot of work for one person, so we will have
                      an electronic data base for entrants to enter their own horse lists into.

                      We are actually still working on this part of the show, so this is going to be a “Stay tuned”
                      section.

CM Glaze Div.     -   Custom Glazes (CMG) are china and ceramic models that have been altered in clay body
                      and/or painted a color other than the factory or production run color. CM Glazes must be
                      fired in a kiln. Cold painted (not fired) chinas and ceramics will show in the Customs
                      division.

Custom Div.       -   A model eligible for the custom division is one that is a factory plastic model that has been
                      altered in some way and/or repainted. Original sculptures that have not been reproduced
                      will also be put into this division.

Artist Resin Div. -   An equine sculpture cast in resin released by an artist in either limited or open runs that is
                      then painted or painted and customized by an artist. No “OF” resins.

AR/CM Mini        -   A “mini” will be classified as any AR or CM that is LESS THAN classic scale (1:12 scale)
                      Classics and up will show in their respective AR and CM MINI divisions.

Micro             -   Micro’s are the incredibly tiny, around 1” tall guys. Usually painted by people in
                      magnifying visors. Plastic, resin, pewter – all are welcome so long as they meet the size
                      requirement.

Amateur Artist    -   Models painted and/or customized by the person showing them are eligible for this
                      division regardless of age of artist, type of model horse, or medium used to finish it. It is
                      a workmanship only division. Amateurs are classified as those who are not professional –
                      i.e. do not make a living, work full time, and/or pay taxes off income gained by painting
                      sales/commissions. This is a division to objectively evaluate yourself and gain knowledge
                      from a professional or expert in the field.

Performance       -   All media and scales will show together. Championships will be awarded to both the high
                      point shower and the high point horse. Additionally, there will be an award for the high
                                                                                                             Page: 4
point mini horse and high point novice shower. Not sure if you qualify to show novice?
                    Please contact Jennifer Buxton (Jennifer@thejennifershow.net) to confirm your status.

General         -   Breakable or wobbly? It’s okay (and encouraged) to lay these models down on something
                    soft on the judging tables. Please do keep that something soft only large enough to cushion
                    the piece and not take up most of the table. Be aware that by laying a piece on it’s side, you
                    are giving the judge permission to pick up the model to examine its other side. If you do
                    not want the judge to pick up your horse, please put a note by your horse or talk to the
                    judge before the class.

                -   Reference is encouraged for rare or unusual markings or breed assignments and should be
                    laid down by the entry.

                -   No doll handlers, sand arenas, etc. will be allowed in breed/workmanship classes due to
                    space and time limitations.

                -   Halters are allowed on horses entered in the breed classes, but these will not necessarily be
                    given preference in judging. Be warned that an ill-fitting or inappropriate halter may
                    actually count against your horse.

Judging Rings   -   Space allowing, we will have two tables going per division. One for each class. While one
                    table is being judged, the other should be setting up. Help keep this running smoothly by
                    paying attention to what classes are being called out by announcer and by promptly loading
                    and unloading your horses to and from the tables.

Placings        -   Classes will be placed 1st through 4th and will be awarded TJS exclusive 2” medallions
                    sculpted by Kylee Parks and Jennifer Scott and possibly/probably other goodies.

Prizes          -   In addition to the medallions mentioned above, Division Champs/Res. Champs will receive
                    larger TJS Exclusive bass reliefs sculpted by Jennifer Scott and Overall Grand
                    Champs/Res. Grand Champs will receive a TJS exclusive mini version of Jennifer Scott’s
                    loose-maned Anise sculpture. Judge and Jennifer favorites will also be awarded and I’m
                    sure we’ll throw yet more goodies your way by the time we reach show day(s). ;)

                    Of course the most fun prizes for us to give away will be the “Star the Day off with a Bang”
                    prize. Saturday will start with a complete English tack set made by Jennifer Buxton.
                    Sunday will start with a red liver chestnut painted MEM No Inhabitions – both resin and
                    finishwork by Jennifer Scott. These are drawn via raffle and tickets are given out at the
                    beginning of the show to entrants. In-person entries will receive five tickets. Proxy entrants
                    will receive one ticket. You cannot buy more to increase your chances of winning.

Sponsorship     -   Another way to help out is to become a sponsor! Sponsorship levels include:
