Arabian Horse Month Showcase
May 9th - June 9th 2020
May is Arabian horse month and the Arabian Horse Association in partnership with Woodford’s Arabian Sport Club is celebrating with a new kind of show where you can show off your beautiful Arabs and win points and prizes as well as work your way toward the title prizes you can win when you reach each title milestone. For more information about titles and prizes see our clubroom thread.
This will be a new kind of show that we have developed to allow for more fun and easier judging. It is called a Hybrid show. You can read a full description of how Hybrid shows work Here
Hybrid shows are judged as follows:
All scores will be randomized based on a scale of 1- 10 for each category. Categories will differ depending on the type of class you enter. For example an in hand class would roll for the following categories and the rolls will be added together to achieve the final score.
These categories will change based on the class you enter but all classes will have 3 categories that will roll for their score.
1 Photograph is required for this show per entry and will be judged as follows for all classes:
Horse Attire 1-5 pts This score will be based on having the correct attire for your horse for the discipline you are showing. This means you should have the correct type of halter, saddle, bridle and protective accessories for the class you are entering. A basic guideline for attire will be included in the class descriptions.
Rider Attire 1-5 pts This score will be based on having the correct attire for your rider for the class you are entering. A basic guideline for attire will be included in the class descriptions.
Setting/Realism 1-5 pts How accurately does your image depict the show setting for the type of show that you are attending. This includes things like spectators if the audience area is visible, the correct surface type, the correct type of jumps and so on. Also includes things like position of the rider to the horse. We will look at things like his position in the saddle, is he poking into the horse. Does the horse look like it is moving realistically. We are not judging your entry for correctness to the discipline just for how realistically what you are depicting is shown.
Composition/Editing 1-5pts This takes into account how aesthetically pleasing your image is. Does it follow the rules of composition? Is it clear and well framed? If your entry is edited this is where your editing will also be scored.
Each player may enter a maximum of 5 horses and each horse may enter 1 in hand class ( Halter or Liberty ) and 1 Performance class. Riders may handle a maximum of 2 horses per show.
