As of the 1st of January 2019 a $50 priority administration fee will apply to ALL NSH applications (registrations, transfers, leases, name changes, corrections & replacement papers) lodged within fourteen (14) days of the closing date of entries if the transaction is required to enter the event. (As approved by the council on 15/12/2018.)
PLEASE NOTE: Change to HOTY Rules. If ANY Horse has competed in another State’s Horse Of The Year Show held in a calendar year, it is ineligible to compete in any Grand National Qualifying Class at that State’s Horse of The Year Show in that same calendar year.
From 1st October 2017, payment of a priority administration fee of $50 is to be added to each NSH Registration application lodged a minimum of 7 days prior to & up to the closing date of a GN Qualifier at which they wish to compete.
There appears to be some confusion on State Event rules due to not all being covered under SHC Competition Rules, reason is rules for State events can vary from State to State.
A State Title is looked upon as a prestige Event & should be treated as such. All rules are to be read in conjunction with other rules of the Show.
If in doubt please direct your inquiry to SHC Administrative Officer 02.4588 5005 or email@example.com
Some specific Rules are required to apply to all State Events including but not limited to:
All horses shall be currently registered with the Show Horse Council of Australasia Inc. NATIONAL SADDLE HORSE REGISTER and shall be resident of & be owned by a resident of that State for a period of not less than three (3) calendar months prior to closing date of Entries.
Current Residency Rule is
. *Members residing within 100km of the border would be able to remain a member of the current affiliate club and with provision of a Stat. Dec. be able to
compete at the adjoining state’s “Horse Of The Year Show”. Proof of distance to be provided annually.
The States will need to monitor those HOTY Entries that are acceptable under this Rule to ensure compliance”.
Note: Entries not meeting the criteria will be considered ineligible.
If ANY Horse has competed in another State’s Horse Of The Year Show held in a calendar year, it is ineligible to compete in EITHER the OPEN HORSE Section or the OPEN SHOW HUNTER Section in that States Horse of The Year Show.
If a Rider has competed in another State’s Horse of the Year Show held in a calendar year, he/she is ineligible to compete in the RIDER Section of that States Horse of The Year Show.
