Regulations

For the smooth running of the competition, here are rules adapted to each class. This is explanatory and useful for classes that are unknown to you. 

Halter class 

A presenter is expected to be properly dressed, without sneakers or t-shirt, that his pony/horse is well presented by keeping it still in the square while I judge looks at it. A pony/horse with good conformation, correct posture, good coat and charisma is what we expect from a show class. All colors, all sizes below 110 cm are allowed to enter our competition.

Liberty

The Liberty class aims to show the gaits of your horse/pony. You will have 1 minute 30 to present it. Here's how it happens: You choose your music which you will have before the start of the competition given to Jules Ancelin (ring steward) who will play it when you release your horse/pony into the ring. For 1 minute 30 minutes you will move your pony/horse throughout the ring. The more your horse/pony has fun and shows good gaits, the more chance he has of winning. When the music stops, you have 1 minute 30 minutes to catch up with your pony/horse (without food). If you or any other person touches your horse, once the halter is removed when the music starts, you will be eliminated.

Ammy Jump

The Ammy Jumps class is reserved for adult handlers who are not “Pro”. The limit of points earned to no longer be admitted to the Ammy class is 35 points. ​ Champion: 6 points Second: 5 points Third: 4 points Fourth: 3 points Fifth: 2 points Sixth: 1 point.   The idea is that everyone has fun and has a chance to win the competition.   "A Handler is considered "Pro" as soon as he has reached 35 points or won a lot in competitions."   Like for example; Jules, Alice, Alicia, Justine and Charly :)   I am counting on the common sense of the Pro participants not to register in this class, the idea being to maintain a good competitive spirit during our competitions. THANKS

Obstacle “Against the clock”

All obstacles have the same value and can be completed in any order and in any direction. You choose your route. Wetsuits are prohibited, height of the course between 45 cm and 50 cm. The time allowed will be 40 seconds, the handler and the horse must overcome as many obstacles as possible. Each obstacle correctly crossed gives two points, each obstacle knocked down takes away 1 point. At the third disobedience, the horse/pony is eliminated. After the bell signaling the end of the 40-second time limit, the competitor must jump another obstacle. The timer is stopped upon receipt of this obstacle, the points of which are not counted. The winner of the event is the one who, in the allotted time, obtains the most points. In the event of a tie on points, time decides between the competitors.

Hunter

We expect from a hunter class: - A harmonious journey - Locomotion and style above the bars are taken into account. - General harmony depending on the race. - Gaits: flexibility, elasticity of gaits, calm, balance and natural cadence. - The forelegs must be symmetrical and in front of the body, the knees above the horizontal line of the elbows, regularity of jumps, trajectories neither too flat nor too bell-shaped, passage of the back, clearance of the hindquarters in the axis of the trajectory . - The horse must stand "on its own", and not be confined, in a constrained attitude. The head-neck angle must be open, the horse must be presented in a natural attitude. - Defenses: horse bragging, kicking, etc. will be penalized. Regularity of cadence, stability on the flat, in the starting zones and in the lines. - Beautiful curvature, more internal, uncoated. From then on, it is for the presenter/horse/pony couple to complete the course in the most elegant and finest way possible. - The elegance of the presenter and the grooming of the pony/horse will count towards the final score.

Dressage hitch

The aim of dressage is to develop the qualities of the horse through harmonious education. It has the effect of making him calm, flexible but also confident, attentive and brilliant, demonstrating the greatest possible complicity with his leader. Dressage constitutes a basis for all equestrian disciplines aimed at developing the driver-horse relationship and advancing the horse's qualities such as locomotion, flexibility and balance. In competitions, presentations are made on sequences composed of classic movements and figures imposed during tests of increasing difficulty where the horse evolves in different gaits. Competition outfit: Horses must be correctly harnessed to the car using drawbars or stretchers. The use of the same harness on the different tests is not obligatory, however they must be adapted to the horses as well as to the test and its safety requirements. Bandages and protections are not obligatory in dressage. It is forbidden to attach the tails to the car or to any part of the harness with the exception of the rigid tail. The leader must also be well dressed and the outfit must be consistent with that of his horse.
