REFRESHMENTSBy Katy Edgar Outside Catering.
1The Fell Pony Society accepts no liability for any loss of property or any accident or damage to any animal, vehicle, spectator or exhibitor, and all entries are accepted subject to this condition. Exhibitors are advised that all ponies should be insured for public liability.
This show is held under the Rules found in the FPS Handbook for Showing and Competing.
2Ponies must not exceed 14 hh (1/2 inch will be allowed for shoes). All ponies of 3 years old and over must pass the measuring standard unless the exhibitor has an annual or life JMB Certificate. This must be shown to the vet on the day of the show. Measuring starts at 7.30 am prompt – ponies for Class 33 being measured first. Please note that all ponies must be measured by 10.30 am. The Show Committee has the right to refuse entry to any pony which has been ruled over-height at any previous Breed Show. Owners of ponies measured over-height on the day of the Show may appeal on payment of £20, which will be forfeited if the first measuring is found correct. When presenting their ponies to be measured, competitors must know their numbers from the catalogue.
3Only paid up current members of the Fell Pony Society are eligible to compete at the Breed Show.
4Only Registered Ponies may be entered. No substitution of entries will be allowed. Ponies must be the bona fide property of the exhibitor, whose name must appear on the passport, as owner, at the closing date for entries.
5Please write the names of each pony to be exhibited in the group classes on the back of the entry form. Groups present on Show Day should declare to Mrs Robson on the field. Entry Fee: £1.00 per pony. Please note – only 3 ponies may be entered. Ponies must be named and those named ponies must be the ones shown. For this class only, ponies may be entered on the day.
6The committee reserve the right to alter Classes if necessary. Whilst every effort is made to avoid classes clashing, sometimes this seems to be inevitable on show day. The committee have added a proposed Timetable as a guide which you will find in this schedule. Exhibitors are advised to consult this when planning their entries. The organisers intend to follow this Timetable as closely as possible. Classes will not be held up for anyone. Please remember that each Class takes an average of 40 minutes to run. Competitors will make the smooth running of the show easier if they are selective in the Classes that they enter.
7Exhibitors are asked not to enter classes judged by their pony’s breeder. A judge may not judge a pony which holds their prefix or which has been bred by his/her immediate family. If the judge finds that, inadvertently, such a situation should arise, he/she should ask the steward to call the referee judge into the ring to place the pony in question.
8All Cups and Trophies are perpetual and must be returned on or before the day of the Show. All winners must sign a receipt on claiming their trophy. This is for insurance purposes and confirms the winner’s responsibility both for the safety of the cup during the year that it is in his/her care, and for any repairs needed due to damage incurred during that period. For insurance purposes, all perpetual trophies are to remain in the UK.
9Ponies need not be vaccinated against Equine Flu, but any pony showing signs of coughing or any virus complaint, will be asked to leave the Show Field.
10Hard hats must be worn at all times that riders are mounted and within the Show Field. Please note: Rule 5 of the Olympia Qualifying Class (Class 33) applies to all the other Riding Classes 15 – 21, 26 and 29 – 30.
11Any objection or complaint must be made in writing in accordance with the Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure.
