ANY show (from 1st August 2017) holding a Foreign Breed class, or a breed specific class (Morgan, Lusitano etc.) is eligible to be a qualifier for our 2018 FBS Championship Show. Shows do NOT currently have to be affiliated in order for competitors to qualify for the FBS Championship Show.
If you wish to affiliate your show, please complete the form below (also found on the left hand side of every page). Shows must have a minimum of 3 Foreign Breed classes (or breed specific classes, e.g. Lusitano) to be eligible to be FBS affiliated and included on our list of shows on our website.
There is NO affiliation FEE and NO lengthy wording to include in your schedule - all you need to do is say "This class (or classes X to Y) is/are a qualifier for the 2018 FBS Championship Show and will be judged under FBS American Rules (or English, as appropriate) - details from:www.foreignbreeds.org Please ensure that your judges are familiar with the FBS Rules.
That's it. Qualifying Cards are downloaded (see below and to the left) by competitors and brought to the show - the onus is on the competitor to bring the card with them, although we can provide cards if required. FBS Membership & Qualification (of the horse) IS required to compete in FBS Championship Classes (these classes are all preceeded by "championship or FBS Championship Class" in our schedule) BUT NO membership OR horse qualification is required to take part in any of the "Open" or "Miniature" classes in the FBS Championship Show.
The top 3 horses/ponies qualify and cards may be passed down the line if horses have already qualified. It is the horse that qualifies and only one qualification is needed per horse to take part in the FBS Championship Show, NOT one qualification card per class. Once qualified, horses may enter any class at the FBS Championship Show that they are eligible for.
FBS members may qualify in ANY Foreign Breed, or Breed Specific class, whether the show is affiliated or not (e.g. In a Ridden Arab class or an In Hand Foreign Breed class). You do NOT have to be a FBS member at the time of qualifying, but you need to be a FBS member if you wish to compete in our "Finals" classes at the FBS Championships in September (we have plenty of classes for non-members / non-qualified horses too).
