 AWARDS: are TBA from 1st-5th place for classes. Divisional and Overall Champ/Reserve awards are TBA.

COLLECTIBILITY/WORKMANSHIP: All halter classes will be double judged both breed and collectability/workmanship. For OF models, your model MUST have collectability information(saying what the model is, the run, how many made, any info about that model. COA's, information written on index cards, print offs from the Stone Reference Website for Stone models, are all acceptable.), or your model WILL NOT BE JUDGED FOR COLLECTIBILITY.

Class Limits: are 3 models per person per HALTER class, and 2 per PERFORMANCE class. If you would like to enter more models, there is a fee of $1 per model. You may place the $1 in front of the horse when you place it on the table for the class. (NOTE: This is just for HALTER models. Not performance. Performance is still 2 per entrant.)

All horses must be tagged before the show. Your 3 initals an your horse's name on one side, and the breed and gender on the other.  You will lay your horse's tag on the table breed side up.  We will not be flipping tags, so please be sure to make sure that the breed side is up when you put your horse in a class.  The horse will be DQ'ed if the name side is up or if there is no tag.

There will be a 3 minute set up for halter classes, and a 5 minute set up for performance classes. No handlers or props allowed in the halter classes.  You may have a halter on your horse, but if it does not fit your horse correctly, it can knock your horse down in placings. 

All documents and notes of explaination are encouraged in halter, especially if you have a rare or unusual breed.

PONY POUND: There will be a pony pound at the show. Models left behind will be announced to be picked up before taken.  If not claimed, it will then be taken to the pony pound.  Models left behind at the end of the show, will be taken home by the showholders.

SELLING AT TABLES: You are allowed to sell at your tables.  Just be sure not to block isles.

CLASS SPLITS: Classes will be split if they become too large. Class splits are at the discetion of the judge of that division.

STRINGING: In large classes, the judge is allowed to string classes if need be to cut the field down.

NO SMOKING, PETS, OR ALCOHOLIC DRINKS ARE ALLOWED. Period!

Children must be attended at all times.  If your child becomes disruptive, place take them outside til they have calmed down.

Please be careful of others' models, and never pick up anyone else's model without asking permission from them first.  You break it, you buy it!

LUNCH: Lunch will run between 12:00pm-1:00pm.  We encourage you to bring a sack lunch, or there is many fast food places near the church. ( McDonalds, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Burger King, Arby's, etc) There will also be a poster that has the phone numbers of places that deliver to the church.

LIABILITY: The Monarch View Farms Live Show Staff and Park Street Brethren Church IS NOT  responsible for any loss, theft, personal injury, damage, etc.

RESULTS: Results will be available on the website, or E-mailed if wanted. If you would like them e-mailed to you, please mark that on your entry form.

DIRECTIONS AND MAPS: For directions, the best thing I have found is to go to Google Maps or Mapquest,  and put your address in at the starting point, and the church as the ending point. You will get turn by turn directions and a map.

~Class Descriptions

OF: Any model as it comes from the factory. No alterations allowed.  Touch ups to flaws are allowed, as long as they can't be seen . (Good rule to follow: If someone looking at the model cannot tell in anyway it has been repaired, and the only way they would know is if you told them, then it is fine.)

CM(Custom): Any model altered from it's original form. This can range from a simple repaint to drastic custom.  Mass produced type resins  that have been repainted must show in this division. (i.e. Black Horse Ranch, Starlight models by Kitty Candrell, Sheryl Leisure resin models, Breyer OF resins, Lakeshore models, etc) Custom glaze models must also show in this division, as there is no separate division for these models.

AR(Artist Resin): A resin casting or original sculpture. Can be painted by any artist.

OF Resins: A resin coming from a factory(Sandicast, Breyer, North Light, etc). These will show in the OF Division.

Foals: Will show in their own classes. Anything under 2 years old is considered a  foal.

TEST RUNS/OOAK: These will show in their respective OF classes.

~Judging Criteria

HALTER: All models will be judged on conformation, breed standard, and finish/workmanship. If you have documentation for unusual breeds, please try to copy it from the book.  Please do not set large books on the table.

PERFOMANCE: Judged on the appropriateness/proper fit of tack,  correctness of model executing the manuver that it is  depicting,  correctness of doll(if being used),  and the realism  of the set up/scene.  Documentation/diagrams are reccommended  explaining/ illistrating what the horse is said to be performing. Dolls are optional in all performances, except Showmanship set ups, which they are required.  Props are required in classes where nessessary/appropriate-i/e: arena trail, natural trail,  barrel racing, pole bending,  cattle/stock work, jumping, games, etc).
