   JUDGES: Capt. Con Power & Mrs Clare Oakes, Co Meath.
Eligibility: - Open to Mares likely to produce performance horses,
with an athletic foal at foot. Mares should be registered with an
approved studbook or with Wetherby's General Studbook or
Wetherby's Non Thoroughbred Register and have recorded
breeding. Foal must be by a registered stallion. Mares must be free
from all obvious clinical or hereditary unsoundness. In case of
doubt, veterinary advice will be sought.
Qualifiers: - Six qualifying venues have been selected from which
the first, second and third placed mare and foal combinations from
each of the qualifiers may enter the final competition at the Fáilte
Ireland Dublin Horse Show.
Rules: - Passports of all competing mares must be brought to the
qualifying shows and to the RDS for scrutiny by the judges. If
correct passports are not available for inspection at the time of
judging, the mare and foal will not be eligible to compete.
Presentation for the Breeders’ Championship:
All mare and foal combinations at both the qualifiers and Final will
be shown in-hand using the triangle format (25m x 40m x 25m). The
triangle format allows the judges to assess natural paces from

                                20
behind, side profile and in front – allowing them to easily determine
freedom of shoulder, use of back, engagement of hock, tracking up
and straightness in their basic paces.
Mares and foals competing in the qualifiers and Final should be
familiar with the triangle format. Guidelines on showing on the
triangle are available from the RDS Website.
Exhibitors should ensure that the foals in particular are handled and
prepared well in advance to perform walk and trot in a balanced and
calm manner around the triangle.
Judging Criteria:
Judging will be based on adjudicating the mare as a progenitor of
athletic type foals with obvious performance potential. The mares
score will count for 40% of the overall mark given to the
combination, with the foals score making up the additional 60%.
All mare and foal combinations will be judged against judging
criteria.
Points will be allocated as follows:
            Mare (total 40 points)
            Overall type / Structure / Power - 10 points

           may be used. Entire colts are not allowed. Judging of this

           ring by the young handler. Rosettes will be provided to
           all entrants by the Clydesdale Horse Society but no prize
           money will be issued for this class.

                            day of the affiliated show.
