TURN OUT:

The Fuel Prices Suck Gas show series is NOT winter/fuzzy pony, proper grooming is expected.

and Dressage.
All Riders must show in appropriate show attire for the class entered. Western Hat or helmet,
long sleeve shirt or jacket, and boots. Turn out should be neat and clean.

GENERAL:

For the Ready Set Show Virtual show highpoint will be calculated per back number and not per individual horse. 

The same Horse/Rider combination cannot show in both walk/trot and walk/trot/canter in the same division (English/Western).  However, the same Horse/Rider combination can show walk/trot in the English division and walk/jog/lope in the western division, or vice versa.

Only one Video will be accepted per horse per class. A horse cannot compete in the same class with different handlers/riders, nor can a handler/rider be in the same class with two different horses.

Exhibitors can ride a different horse in the WT/WJ and the WTC/WJL classes. There is a one rider/horse combo allowed per class. So, if you have 2 horses you cannot ride them both in the same class.

Exhibitors can only show/handle/drive one horse per class with the exception on the RANCH RIDING CLASS and DRESSAGE TESTS. EXHIBITOR CAN SHOW MULTIPLE HORSES IN THE RANCH RIDING and DRESSAGE, as they would be able to at a normal horse show

JUDGES CLASS INSTRUCTIONS:

Rail Classes:

For each of the respective rail riding classes, the judge would like to see 15-30 seconds at each gait in each direction, plus a halt with back at the end.  The back can occur either at the center of the ring at conclusion or on the rail.  The rider can choose which option, but not including this aspect will count as a refusal of the gait. The preferred video angle is from the center of the ring following the rider.

Please film the class from the appropriate spot marked on the pattern. Judge will disqualify and/or penalize exhibitors for not following all rules and instructions and/or not performing the posted pattern.

Showmanship:
The camera should be in the position of the J on the pattern.  Exhibitors need to set their horse up and have the judge (camera) walk around the animal for inspection.
