51.2 It is preferred at AQHA approved shows that no Show Manager, Show Secretary, Arena Director or Ring Steward exhibit horses
where he/she is officiating.
51.15 A competent Ring Steward will be required for each Judge at all AQHA approved shows. Any reputable person or persons may

AQHA Rules and Regulations.
51.16 A competent Ring Steward will be able to control the conduct of the horses and exhibitors in the ring, and keep the class progressing.
51.17 Ring Stewards may not hold the position of Show Manager or Show Secretary at a show at which they serve as Ring Steward.
51.18 The Ring Steward will notify the Judge when all horses are present for each class, and call his/her attention to those horses

51.19 The Ring Steward must have in his/her mind that he/she has “been selected to help the Judge - not advise him”. He/she shall

exhibitor. The Judge should request the Ring Steward to move and place horses as he/she advises. When the ring or arena size is
