please direct any and all questions to the #thoroughbred-society discord chat.
Welcome to the Thoroughbred Society Winter Show. This is a conformation show, thus horses will be graded based on how well they meet breed standards. As the winter season comes to an end and showing season begins, this is the perfect opportunity to bring in the horses from the pasture, get them cleaned up, and conditioned for the showing season ahead of them.
Due to local safety guidelines, we will not be hosting this show in person. Entrants are encouraged to stay home and enter via the internet. This allows everyone to stay safe, and hopefully brings out the creative side in everyone! We would love to see those Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc. posts from our younger entrants, and perhaps some, "curse this stupid fangled technology" from our older members. This is not required, and a normal entry is absolutely allowed, but we are encouraging you to think outside the box!
Horses must be registered with the Thoroughbred Society in order to receive points and gradings.
Entry fee must be received from members in order to be judged. If entry fee is not paid, your entry will be disqualified.
Handler doesn’t have to be visible in conformation classes, but be realistic. Reins are not 12 feet long.
Photos should be taken at your personal lots. You do not have to take them at a large arena, a small warm up pen at home would do fine.
Photos must be taken for this show only.
Horses may not be cross entered in multiple classes.
Entries may have multiple photos.
Stallions and futurity classes should be handled by anyone 16+ years old.
Foals under weaning age may be shown with their dam (surrogate or biological). Similarly, if a mare has a young foal, they may be shown together. However, one photo will count for one entry. If you would like both horses graded, you will need to have two separate entries.
Horses should be presented in a plain bridle or halter. No other tack is required. Horses should have their manes presented neatly, though braids are not required.
Handlers (if shown) should be in simple formal attire.
Elite gradings will be given to horses who exceptionally meet breed standards. Elite grading is essentially extra bragging rights and could elevate breeding horses, giving them an extra edge in the stud market.
Show Favorite is essentially Judge's Choice. This is given to the horse who the judge likes the most, whether this is based on a funky coat, hilarious misbehaving, or just a cutie pie. Who really knows?
There are no categorized movement, free jumping, or in-hand classes. These are all allowed, but will all be graded under the following six classes:
Stallions (3+) (edited/non)
Mares and Geldings (3+) (edited/non)
Youngsters (< 3) (edited/non)
Classes with more than 8 entries will be split. Classes with less than that will not be merged with other classes.
