  1. There is a limit of TWO horses per exhibitor per class. Each horse may be shown in ONE class only. Choose the class that best represents the breed of your horse. If you are not sure what breed your horse is, ask the judge BEFORE the show begins. Customs are limited to ONE horse per entrant. Prepare your model before the class, place it and step away from the table.

    4. Models are encouraged to have a 1” hang tag attached to one rear leg with your name for identification purposes. This helps prevent someone else picking up your horse by mistake. Place the leg tag on the table blank side up.
