Judge’s decision is final.

Tests will not be judged if they are entered after close of date and not paid for fully before the close of date.

Rules will be adjusted accordingly as we go on, so please keep yourself up to date.

Should the rider choose to wear show attire, then the horse MUST be wearing boots/bandages to prove that the test has not already been judged at a previous event.
