Presentation of Mares and/or Foals

Handlers should enter when the jury indicates, and bring the horse to stand in front of the jury with the left side toward the jury. The handler should stand in front of the horse and position the horse in an open stance which allows the jury to see all four legs. The handler should, of course, be aware of the safety of the jury. 

When the jury indicates, the handler should lead the horse at the walk straight away from the jury and from the end of the triangle, return to the jury. Both horse and handler should "stride out", the goal being to show good length of stride and correct rhythm. The reins should be carried in the right hand. Horses should be turned to the right with the handler staying on the outside of the horse. 

When the jury indicates, the handler should lead the horse at the trot in clockwise direction around the triangle. The handler should be able to run with enough speed to match the natural stride of the horse. The goal of the handler is to present the horse to its best advantage - there are no penalties for breaking gait, not staying on the triangle, stopping or not stopping at the end of each side.
Mares with weanlings on side should be brought to stand in front of the jury first. The weanling should be on a halter and have its own handler. When the jury indicates, the handler may turn the weanling loose. The handler of the mare should lead the mare at the trot in clockwise direction around the triangle. The weanling should stay inside and trot loose on the mare's side. It is the goal to show the weanling to its best advantage at the trot. The mare will not influence the judgment of the weanling. There are no penalties for breaking gait, stopping, turning around etc. of the weanling during presentation. 

In general handlers should not be overly sensitive to advise from the jury which is aimed to the best possible presentation of the horses. Owners should consider to hire a professional handler (available at most inspection sites) if they are not experienced and comfortable in showing horses and/or or not able to run VERY quickly to show off a horse's trot at its best.. 

As a courtesy to the jury and the spectators, handlers and anyone who will be entering the ring should wear a solid colored shirt with collar and white or khaki pants. We suggest comfortable running shoes. All horses should be properly groomed and braided (weanlings optional).
