    So there is no confusion at the end of the day when everyone is trying to pack up - load up & go home, entrants running a "tab" for classes will be asked to leave a signed, dated check at the sign up desk.
    If someone inadvertently forgets to cash out their tab it will already be taken care of.

    Please remember that the Judges decision is Final in ANY class.

    NOTE: From the 2005 rules -
    If 2 people are using the same horse or pony with 2 different numbers, you are required to pay 2 Office Fees whether you are signed up for Points or not. (Example: 1 person shows the horse in Halter Classes & another person shows in riding classes with a different number or if 2 people use the same horse in separate riding or halter classes with different numbers, two Office Fees are required.)

This will apply to both Point & Non-Point Riders. There will be NO cross entering between horse & pony classes.

    All clubs holding a show will be required to attend a mandatory training meeting to go over forms, rules & helpful suggestions. This meeting will be held prior to the beginning of the show season. This meeting is designed to help the show personnel & get them familiar with the forms & procedures, etc., before the morning of the show.
