New Competition Rule 2.0.1
"From 1st January 2017 no State Representative or Award Badges from any similar organisation shall be worn or attached to the riding attire of any exhibitor &/or competitor at any SHC event.”
There appears to be some confusion on State Event rules due to not all being covered under SHC Competition Rules, reason is rules for State events can vary from State to State.
A State Title is looked upon as a prestige Event & should be treated as such. All rules are to be read in conjunction with other rules of the Show. If in doubt please direct your enquiry to SHC Secretary 02.4311 2854 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Some specific Rules are required to apply to all State Events including but not limited to:
All horses shall be currently registered with the Show Horse Council of Australasia Inc. NATIONAL SADDLE HORSE REGISTER and shall be resident of & be owned by a resident of that State for a period of not less than three (3) calendar months prior to closing date of Entries.
Current Residency Rule is
. *Members residing within 100km of the border would be able to remain a member of the current affiliate club and with provision of a Stat. Dec. be able to
compete at the adjoining state’s “Horse Of The Year Show”. Proof of distance to be provided annually.
The States will need to monitor those HOTY Entries that are acceptable under this Rule to ensure compliance”.
Note: Entries not meeting the criteria will be considered ineligible.
If ANY Horse has competed in another State’s Horse Of The Year Show held in a calendar year, it is ineligible to compete in EITHER the OPEN HORSE Section or the OPEN SHOW HUNTER Section in that States Horse of The Year Show.
If a Rider has competed in another State’s Horse of the Year Show held in a calendar year, he/she is ineligible to compete in the RIDER Section of that States Horse of The Year Show.
