    OK here are some of the rules out of the show horse council handbook, and yes I have just copied them, I am not retyping them all hehe.

    4.0 – COMPETITOR/EXHIBITOR PROTOCOL.​
    4.1 a) It is the Competitor’s/Exhibitor’s responsibility to ensure eligibility for a class.
    b) Where any ineligibility to compete may occur, the Competitor/Exhibitor (not the
    Judge) should withdraw from the class/event.
    4.2 A Competitor/Exhibitor/Owner, should not compete under any Judge where a breach of
    these Rules may occur. It is the responsibility of the Competitor/Exhibitor to ascertain
    who is the Judge of any class/event he/she intends to compete in. Where a conflict may
    occur, the onus, in the first instance, is on the Competitor/Exhibitor to abide by the Rules
    and withdraw from competition. In the second instance, a Judge should not knowingly
    judge an ineligible entrant. Ignorance will not be accepted as a defence for breach of the​
    Rule.

    5.00 – COMPETITOR/EXHIBITOR/EXHIBIT ELIGIBILITY.​
    5.1 The Competitor/Exhibitor/Exhibit is INELIGIBLE to compete if:
    a) 1. The Competitor/Exhibitor is a family member of the Judge officiating in any event
    in which he/she intends to compete.
    2. The Competitor/Exhibitor is an immediate family member of the Judge officiating
    in hack and/or riding classes at the show where he/she intends to compete, in any
    Hack and or riding class (regardless of who may be judging).

    or his employer or employee, or business partner/partner within the last 12 months.
    c) The Competitor/Exhibitor/Owner or his family has provided accommodation for the
    Judge immediately prior to or during the Show or vice versa . This Rule extends to
    cover a current Landlord/Tenant relationship.

    or a member of his family or business partner/partner within the last 6 months.
    e) The Competitor/Exhibitor has given the Judge or a member of his family tuition
    within the last 6 months.

    shall not be considered as tutoring. Individual or Group lesson/s given in a school
    situation, where schools are conducted on a regular basis (within a 3 month period)
    with the same instructor, will be considered tutoring.​

    Judges

    I never mention on Stockyard when and if I am judging, like to stay unknown. In Dressage you cannot judge anyone who is staying with you, you have had a lesson in the last six months or they have purchased a horse off you. I know a lot of judges cannot judge certain classes due to having a pupil in the event. I do get a little toey when someone I know reports to me for a test and they say hello and call me by name. not good to do.:eek: .......
