    There were quite a few scratchings in the purebreds. There were only 4 younger stallions I think. And the order they were called is not necessarily the order they were placed in although often was with the first finalist called being 3rd place. In some classes where everyone was sashed (ie trot and head) the finalists were definitely in no particular order :)
  3. You've only listed results from 25 classes there :p :)

    6 were entered with one scratched, so 5 in the class. there were two finalist places given.

    Hey manocaaron,
    Can someone kindly explain to mum and I how the whole 'finalist' thing works? We are way out of date with the arab shows haha

    So do they award to 3rd place and then the rest are given finalist placings or...?

    from what I saw...Champ and res and then x amount of finalists depending on how many entries. Their is no 3rd and finalists are not in order of preference. Not sure on how many entries to how many finalists though. I know not all entries in quality head /trot were awarded as finalists on saturday

    Thank Elanda!

    I see how it works now!

    We weren't actually there, we are just going off what we heard from the owner about him placing third. Haha

    Even so, it doesnt really matter to us, as you can probably tell, we breed for endurance not show ;) :p our big bulky crabbets would look funny against all the Egyptians in the ring! :p

    There is a formula for the number of finalist ribbons given. It is based on the Australian Champs formula, but a little bit more generous to account for our 'regional' status - and it depends on the number of entries, not on the number that show up in the class.

    We also made sure that all of our youth competitors got at least one finalist ribbon, so all the competitors in the youth handler class and the rider classes - (where the handler or rider were being judged, not the horse) regardless of the number of competitors.

    Thanks to one of our wonderful sponsors - our Junior Judges and Young adult judges got a gorgeous chocolate bouquet of Chuppachups, with enough left over to give the youth that hung in there til the very end (even though the ponies were just about asleep) a lollipop or two.

    Mirawee, not all the competitors were sashed in Head and Trot on the Saturday :) I've been thinking about that for the last two days...because I was wondering how a horse gets State Champion in it's class (large class btw) and then not even get sashed Finalist in trot AND head ';' I'm never going to understand Judges, am I? :eek:

    Damn missed some *#) have updated them now... also could not count was 38 classes we entered horses in.

    In the end our horses placed in 29 of the 31 classes that they contested. We withdrew from 7 classes as we felt the horses had had enough by that stage (so had the riders)

    Wattle, I specifically said purebreds ;) I was stewarding so know what was given out. There were a lot of scratchings in quite a few classes. I can only remember 3 or 4 stallions in the younger senior class but it was a long day LOL
