HEIGHT REQUIREMENTS, please refer to to heights posted on www.FHANA.com
HEIGHT CERTIFICATE: There has been allot of confusion regarding this issue.
The judges WILL BE MEASURING HORSES at the Kuering sites
YOU MUST STAY with your horses AT THE KUERING SITE UNTIL YOUR HORSE IS MEASURED.
(usually Prior to the class)
the height certificate IS ONLY for people that left a Kuering site with their horses after it has been presented without staying for measurements. WITHOUT a height.... registration papers and or Ster statues cannot be issued.
So unless you took a horse for studbook or Ster last year and there was a change to the horses papers, and you left before measuring. you do not have to fill out the height certificate.
ORDER OF GO: (MIGHT BE AS LISTED HERE, OR COULD CHANGE AND BE IN REVERSE ORDER, will be determined by the judges and annouced the morning of the show) STALLIONS and IBOP will always Stay First.
STALLIONS 2nd time
BODY CLIPPING: DO NOT body clip your horse, to read what is allowable in clipping and cutting please go under "Friesian Questions" on this website.
SHOES: you may present your horse shod or un shod but it must be all four shod or all four barefoot. No Corrective shoeing or pads. Clips are fine. Bare foot horses should, be even and presented with good condition hoofs, I suggest a recent manicure :-)STALLIONS: can be shod or un shod, above rules apply, however stallion shown with shoes will have some of there measured height removed, at the discretion of the judges to account for the shoes added height.
Want to Know about allowable Clipping, Linear Scoring or how to present your horse? Please read under the "KEURING HOW TO PAGE" and "FRIESIAN QUESTIONS"
