Now available for 3 year old horses!
Based on several member requests the board has decided to expand the NSBA Scandinavia Young Horse Cup (previously available for 1&2 year old horses) with 3 year olds.
At every show offering the NSBA Scandinavia Young Horse Cup show management will have to offer 3 classes with combined age divisions:
1-2 & 3 year Old Shwomanship
1-2 & 3 year Old In Hand Trail
1-2 & 3 year Old Longe Line
These classes will be held in a ”class in class” system, where the judges will deliver their placings of the class and show management will separate the placings into age groups and announce placings for Yearlings, 2 year olds and 3 year olds respectively.
This means that you’re only competing against horses of the same age.
The intention is to have big classes, include everyone and create fair competition without taking up precious time from the show by holding several young horse classes.
3 year old horses competing in the Young Horse Cup aren’t allowed to enter any riding classes at the same show. No matter it is a paid warm up, allbreed, NSBA or breed class.
3 yr old horses competing in the Young Horse Cup are not allowed to be ridden at the show grounds.
The NSBA Scandinavia Young Horse Cup results will be combined (1-2 &3 year olds together) where the highest point earning horse will be the winner independent of their age. This applies to the NSBA Scandinavia Year End Awards as well.
The cup contains the following classes:
- Showmanship at Halter
Alike a ordinary Showmanship; but open for all exhibitors, including open riders. It is designed to judge the showmanship skills of the exhibitors. Judges evaluate the grooming and fitting of the horse, and expertise of the exhibitor in presenting the horse. Each exhibitor is required to perform a pattern designed by the Judge with emphasis on preciseness of pattern and degree of confidence exhibited by the showman.https://taselvfoto.zenfolio.com/ – John Jensen
The purpose of showing a young horse in longeline is to show its movement, attitude and confirmations to become a showhorse later in life. In Longeline horse is judges based on weather it is a pleasure- or huntertyp of horse. The class is divided into to parts; first part is inspection were horses confirmation is judged, second part is longeing were horse is being lunged in 90 seconds. It is the handlers responsibility to show the horse in both directions and all three gaits.
