New rules for Horse of the Year Show announced

Posted on | 0 Responses

New rules for the Horse of the Year Show have been announced, which have been met with disdain by some of the potential competitors.

A single set of rules have been drawn up following meetings with all the showing societies. One major change is that a qualified animal that is the subject of a successful height objection will be banned from competing in any other qualifier for the rest of the season.

Joint Measurement Board measurer Jane Nixon told Horse and Hound she agreed that something needed to be done but these new rules "required more thought".

Another innovation is that family members of judges officiating at Horse of the Year Show qualifiers cannot compete at the same event on the same day, which has been described as "an insult to a judge's integrity".

It was announced at the end of 2011 that this year's event has been reduced from six days to five due to the expected impact of the Olympic Games.
