placement, but under no circumstances will it be responsible for any loss, injury or damage done to or caused
by any animal or article on exhibition. It is the responsibility of the competitive exhibitor to obtain appropriate
insurance for any damages due to or caused by the exhibit and to indemnify and hold the Society harmless
against any claim arising out of incidents involving the exhibit. Removal or pickup of exhibits at established
times as stated in individual department premium books, entry blanks or entry receipts, shall be the responsibility
of the competitive exhibitor. The Society shall not be responsible for any exhibit not removed or picked up at
established time and the secretary or delegate will dispose of all exhibits not removed or picked up within one
year of such established time.

3.03 Board of Animal Health
The exhibition of livestock on the State Fairgrounds shall be under the supervision of the Minnesota Board of
Animal Health and its applicable rules and regulations will be complied with in full. Health requirements for
individual departments will be set forth in their respective premium books.

3.04 General competitive entry requirements
Competitive exhibitors must file proper entry blanks with any applicable fees prior to the designated closing date
for entries. The Society reserves the right to refuse entries or prohibit the exhibition of animals or articles
entered if the showing of such animals or articles is contrary to law, or violative of the Society's interest in
providing for the health, safety and protection of its patrons. Exhibits entered in the wrong lot or category may
be transferred prior to judging at the discretion of the department superintendent to the proper lot or category
of competition. Deception of any type by an exhibitor, as determined by the department superintendent will ban
the exhibitor from any further competition and result in the forfeiture of all premiums. Mechanical or artistic
articles must be entered in the name of the artist, inventor, manufacturer or maker. No Society employee or
department superintendent, or member of their family, shall be permitted, directly or indirectly, to make a
competitive entry in any department over which that person has supervisory responsibility or in which that
person is employed. No society officer or member of the Board of Managers, or member of their family, shall
be permitted to make a competitive entry of any type in any department.

3.05 Animal competitive entry requirements
When animals are entered for State Fair competition by an entity other than an individual, that entity (whether
a corporation, partnership, breeding establishment or other) must have been in existence as of the closing
date of entries. Appropriate documentation showing the status of the entity must be available for inspection by
the department superintendent. All animals entered under a breed classification must be recorded in a breeding
association recognized as representative of the particular breed. The competitive exhibitor must produce a
certificate of registry at the request of the department superintendent. All animals shown must be owned by
the competitive exhibitor from the time of making entry, except as otherwise provided in special rules of the
department.

3.06 Judges
Competent and qualified persons will be employed as judges by the Society to evaluate all competitive exhibits.
Judges shall be responsible for reading and understanding the general rules and all special rules applicable to
the department or class in which they are to serve. No person who is a competitive exhibitor may act as judge
in a class in which they are competing.

3.07 Interference with judging
Judges shall report to the department superintendent any competitive exhibitor who in any way, whether in
person or by agent or employee, interferes with them or shows any disrespect to them during the judging. The
department superintendent may exclude any such competitive exhibitor from further competition. The secretary
may withhold from such competitive exhibitor any or all premiums that have been awarded and may also
exclude such competitive exhibitor from further competition at the State Fair.

Judges and persons acting as clerks to the judges must use special care to record the proper names in the
award books after awards have been made. The judge, competitive department superintendent in charge and
clerk recording the awards of the department must sign the award book at the close of each class immediately
after all awards in such class have been made.
                                                               ENGLISH HORSE - General Rules                     15
3.09 Qualification of entries
If there is any question as to the regularity of an entry or the right of any animal or article to compete in any lot
or category, the judge or judges shall report same to the competitive department superintendent in charge for
adjustment. Judges shall place a reserve award in each lot. Should any animal or article awarded a prize be
disqualified, the animal or article awarded the next lower prize shall graduate into the next higher position, if in
the opinion of the judge, it is worthy of such prize. Judges must not award a prize to an unworthy exhibit. No
premium or distinction of any kind shall be given to any animal or article that is not deserving.

3.10 Finality of decisions
In judging livestock, the decision of the official State Fair veterinarian and judge as to soundness shall be final.
The decision of the judge shall be final in all cases, except when mistake, fraud, misrepresentation or collusion,
not known at the time of the award, is discovered. In such cases, the secretary shall take appropriate action or
refer the matter to the board of managers.

3.11 Interpretation of rules
A faithful observance of all rules governing the exhibit will be required, and when in doubt as to the application
or meaning of a rule, the competitive department superintendent in charge shall interpret such a rule. This
interpretation when requested by either a competitive exhibitor or judge must be reduced to writing and returned
to the secretary or delegate with the award books.

3.12 Protests
A protest from the decision of a judge will only be accepted from a competitive exhibitor named in the official
judge's sheet for competition in the lot or class under protest, and must be filed with the secretary within five
hours after the award has been made. An award is deemed to have been made when the notation of the
decision of the judge is entered into the department award book. All protests must be made in writing and
must be accompanied by a deposit of one hundred dollars. The protest must state plainly and specifically the
facts upon which the complaint or appeal is based. The right to appeal will lie only when it is charged that the
award has been made in violation of the rules governing the exhibit, or when it is charged that the decision of
the judge has been influenced or interfered with by another person. No protest or appeal based upon the
statement that the judge or judges are incompetent or have overlooked an animal or article will be considered.
The one hundred dollar deposit will be returned only if the protest or appeal is upheld. In protest and appeal
instances where rules established by a breed association or other competitive organization with which the
Society has an agreement differ from this rule, rules of the association or organization shall govern.

3.13 Late showing of exhibit
No animal or exhibit will be judged or awarded a prize if it is not ready for judging and promptly brought into
the show ring when the lot is called.

3.14 Premium money
Cash premiums awarded will be paid by check made out to the competitive exhibitor and mailed to the post
office address as stated on the entry blank. Competitive exhibitors may forfeit all premium money if exhibits are
removed from the grounds prior to the official time of release. The board of managers reserves the right to
make reductions in premiums if the financial conditions of the Society make such reductions necessary.

The USHJA requires that all horses and ponies be registered with a permanent registration number. This reg-
istration requirement is in addition to the USEF recording or identification number. The registration number will
be the same number as the USEF recording number. The cost for the registration is $30 per horse/pony.
Those horses/ponies with USEF life recording numbers prior to December 1, 2008 are not charged for the reg-
istration. This will pop-up when you renew your USEF and USHJA membership for those horses/ponies you
have already recorded. Otherwise, you will be required to complete the registration and pay the fee before you
exhibit your horse/pony at a USEF rated show.
Go to www.USHJA.org/membership/faqs. html for more information.

All horses competing in the Hunter Division must be properly identified and must obtain a registration number
from USHJA. The registration number must be entered on the entry form.
The courses shall be ones that management deems a fair test of a hunter. Fences shall simulate obstacles
found in the field, such as: natural post and rail, brush, wall, white fence or gate, coop, aiken, hedge, oxer, etc.
Judged on performance (even hunting pace, manners, style of jumping, faults and way of moving over the
course) as well as being jogged for soundness.
Cross entry between the Hunter and Jumper division is permitted.
All classes are Full Championship Point classes unless otherwise noted. Hunter Championships are award-
ed to the top two of the four horses in the section.
UNDER SADDLE classes shown at walk, trot and canter both ways of the ring; light contact with horse's
mouth required. Horses to be obedient, alert, responsible, move freely and not be eliminated for slight errors.
Horses may be asked to hand gallop collectively one way of the ring, but never more than eight will be asked
to hand gallop at one time.

         NEW for 2011!
 We are replacing our yearly featured
act with educational demonstrations to
        entertain our audience!
These demonstrations will take place
during the afternoon and evening per-
formances in the Lee & Rose Warner
               Coliseum.
 We hope to expand the knowledge
  of the fair guests and get them
   more involved in the exciting
  classes that you, as exhibitors
             compete in.
    If you would like to volunteer,
everyone is welcome to help or partici-
      pate in this new endeavor!
  Please contact the Competition
 Department at (651) 288-4417 with
   any inquires or suggestions.
