All Title Class entries must have won one Champion or one Reserve Champion in an Open Conformation class in the section you are competing in at one of the above shows.
A Champion or Reserve Champion gained by qualifying through a Novice win or a restricted class is not acceptable.
There are exceptions to this rule - refer to the schedule for details of qualification.

There are no qualifications required for lead up classes and Rising Star classes.

No bandages or boots to be worn in the ring.

Rising Star Horses and Ponies may not compete in the open ring except for
Working Hunter Horse; Working Hunter Pony; Gee Wizz; Adult Rider classes;
Child Rider classes; Sidesaddle.
To compete in the Rising Star section, a Rising Star is classed as a horse or pony not to have won an Open Champion before HOY 2005 in any section excluding Leading Rein and First Ridden.
If a horse wins an Open Championship in the 2005 - 2006 season it is eligible.

Classes may be run simultaneously.

You may only compete in the section that you nominated to compete in at the beginning of the season, i.e. first show you compete in after 1/10/05.
Once a horse/pony has achieved 6 wins in conformation classes, this horse/pony is not eligible to return to "Novice" status should it change sections at the beginning of a new show season.
