EQUI-SHOW RULES & VIDEO GUIDELINES


SUBMITTING A VIDEO ENTRY

  1. The judge can only judge what they can see. It is ideal to zoom in when you are far from the camera, so that the judge can see your moves. Please ensure that the horse and rider entire are always within frame in entirety, as described below (failure to do so can lead to elimination).

  • In order to give everyone a chance to compete and to try out other disciplines, some classes will carry a special dispensation for tack. If this applies to the discipline you would like to compete in, this will be stated on the relevant test page. Note: Non-mechanical bitless bridles are allowed across disciplines.
  • No show attire is mandatory for any of the disciplines, however you must be wearing the appropriate clothing for your class, be clean and tidy, well groomed and be wearing protective headgear and footwear with a suitable heel.
