Rules 2018

 

Two classes will be offered (females and males) The top two un-qualified horses in each class will qualify.

The qualification will not pass lower than FOURTH place.

The qualifying classes will be judged on a points system with two judges (one for ride and one for conformation) using 50 marks each. The conformation judge will spit their marks 25/25 type/conformation. The judge does not ride the exhibits, instead each exhibit performs a set show which has been decided upon by the ride judge and is suitable to be performed by ridden horses of open standard. There is no initial pull-in. Exhibits stand in line in any order.

The Type/conformation judge must be on the AHS List of Ridden Judges. The ride/performance judge may be from any panel.

Points will be awarded out of a maximum of:-
​​​50 points for performance/show/way of going.
​​​25 points for conformation
​​​25 points for type

In the event of a tie of points for two horses WITHIN the TOP 8 placing, the horse with the highest RIDE followed by TYPE marks will receive the higher placing.

Marks will be displayed after the classes and marks sheets will be available online within seven days of the qualifying show.

The championship class at the Finals itself will follow the same marking system as the qualifying classes.The top five from each section will go forward to the final where full evening wear is to be worn.

Qualifying cards must be purchased from the Ridden Arabian Star Series Organising Committee at a cost of £20 per card. Please ensure you send an SAE with your entry. See 'Contact Us' page for information on how to apply for your card.

Cards must be carried in the ring and signed by the judge during the class to verify qualification. Cards must not be brought into the ring once the class has commenced.

Qualified exhibitors must return the signed card to the Ridden Arabian Star Series Committee within 10 days of qualification, as indicated on the card.

The C.A.R.E class at the British National Championships will be a RASS qualifier. The two highest placed (previously unqualified horses) placed within the top 4 at Malvern with a current RASS card, will qualify for the RASS 2015 finals. 


You do not need to be an Arab Horse Society members but horses must be registered in the Pure Bred AHS Stud Book.
To purchase qualifying cards please visit the contact us page.

The finals will be held at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre 24-26 August 2018.
