RESERVE BROODMARE Class 8 Qualifier for the 2018 RDS Breeders’Championship The triangle judging format will be used for this class and final ENTRY FEE €25 Aim - To give recognition to breeders who breed from mares suitable to produce top quality foals with performance potential. 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 the RDS and for the industry to showcase the quality of equine talent being produced nationally for future domestic and export markets. Eligibility - Open to Mares likely to produce performance horses, with an athletic foal at foot. Mares should be registered with an approved studbook or with Weatherby’s General Studbook or Weatherby’s Non Thoroughbred Register and have recorded breeding. Foal must be by a registered stallion. Mares must be free from all obvious clinical or hereditary unsoundness. In case of doubt, vet- erinary advice will be sought.

Entry Fee - RDS Members; €330 each entry; Non-Members: €370 each entry. Rules - Passports of all competing mares must be brought to the qualifying shows and to the RDS 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. Qualification - Six qualifying venues have been selected from which the first, second and third placed mare and foal combinations from each may enter the Final at the Dublin Horse Show. Competition Format - All mare and foal combinations at both the qualifiers and Final will be shown in-hand using the triangle format (25m x 40m x 25m).

The triangle format allows the judges (who will be positioned at A) to assess natural paces from behind, side and in front - allowing them to easily assess freedom of shoulder, use of back, en- gagement of the hock, tracking up and straightness in both paces. Mares and foals competing in the qualifiers and Final should be familiar with the triangle for- mat. Guidelines on showing on the triangle are available by clicking here. Mares and foals will have one opportunity to show themselves on the triangle; it is in the interest of the exhib- itor to ensure that they are both shown correctly. Exhibitors should ensure that the foals in particu- lar are handled and prepared well in advance to perform walk and trot in a balanced and calm manner around the triangle.

Exhibits in the class will be viewed on‘the triangle’in the order in which they appear in the official DHS Catalogue.
