 Please Note:



  • Showing classes are standardised throughout New Zealand. The Standard Qualifying Section Schedule is therefore the basis for all Show/Event Schedules.
  •  A Standard Qualifying Section Schedule (see MSS 2) is to be offered, so competitors and horses/ponies can qualify for Royal A&P Shows/Events, Showing Championships endorsed by the RAS or NZ Horse of the Year (HOY). Shows/Events are not obliged to run all the sections, they can choose the sections they have the ability to run or suit their region, however the sections they choose must be run as a complete unit as stated. (i.e classes cannot be substituted, changed or deleted)
  •  Shows unable to offer any of the sections in total of the standard qualifying section schedule may construct their own programme; however it must state clearly in their schedule that their show does not qualify competitors or horses/ponies for any Royal A&P Shows/Events, Showing Championships or HOY. A sample non qualifying schedule is available from RAS Head Office.

Please ensure you check with the Show if they are running the Standard Qualifying Section Schedule for qualification status.
