Determination of eligibility and appropriate age divisions.
All contestants must be bona fide 4-H members in New Mexico enrolled in a 4-H horse project for the
current year and in good standing. Each contestant must enter their appropriate age group as follows:
 Novice- Ages 9 to 11. A 4-H member must have passed his/her 9th birthday or be 8 years old and in
    the third grade but not have passed his/her 12th birthday prior to January 1, 2009.
 Junior- Ages 12 to 13. A 4-H member must have passed his/her 12th birthday but not have passed
    his/her 14th birthday prior to January 1, 2009.
 Senior- Ages 14 to 19. A 4-H member must have passed his/her 14th birthday but not have passed
    his/her 20th birthday by January 1, 2009.

A horse may be ridden in only one age division in each class, Novice, Junior, or Senior, and the horse
cannot be shown in the other two age divisions. Horses entered in the show must be a project of the 4-H
member. The 4-H member must have a horse or pony that he/she manages at least 75% of the time and
has full access to use of the horse. For project purposes, management is considered to include feeding,
grooming, exercising, training, and stall maintenance. The 4-H member is not allowed under any
circumstances to exhibit stallions at any 4-H horse event. The 4-H member must file an identification
certificate for his/her horse with the county extension office by April 15 th of the current show year.
Although horses are not required to be registered with any breed association, it is recommended that the
4-H member has documentation verifying the identity and ownership of the horse (e.g., registration
certificate, New Mexico brand inspection transport permit, etc.)

Conduct of classes and show management.
All classes offered (and associated courses, patterns, equipment requirements, arena requirements, etc.)
will be conducted and judged according to the rules printed in the most current handbook of the
American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) in Amarillo, TX. The handbook is available online at
www.aqha.com. The horse show judge is the final authority for interpreting AQHA rules as they apply to
conduct of a show. In the event of inclement weather, the horse show judge is the final authority on
determining which classes can safely be held. If a class is not conducted due to the judge’s ruling, then
no points will be awarded for that class thus not qualifying for New Mexico State Fair. Refer to rules
posted on the State 4-H Website for additional information on rules and grievances:
http://cahe.nmsu.edu/4h/.

    awarded. 1st – 6 points, 2nd – 5 points, 3rd- 4 points; 4th – 3 points; 5th – 2 points; 6th – 1 point. If
    a class has 6 or less entries then points will be given for the number of entries. EX: If novice
    showmanship at halter has only 4 entries then 1st place would receive 4 points, 2nd – 3 points,
    3rd – 2 points, 4th – 1 point.
   The winner is determined by adding the points earned by each contestant and each horse in which
    he/she has placed in the top six. Points are compiled on a one-horse, one-4-H member basis.

    events, (2) earned the most points in the riding classes, (3) greatest # of first places, (4) coin toss.
