Paper/Homemade ribbons through 6th place in all classes. In OPEN division, first and second place horses will receive NAN cards. For time (and sanity) reasons, post show results will only reflect 1st and 2nd place finishers in each NAN qualifying class. However, on show day, all judging sheets will be made available for anyone needing to update their personal records on their horse’s performance, should they need them. OF Collectability 1st & 2nd place finishers will receive NAN cards and ribbons.

Classes may be split according to judge’s discretion or if entries warrant, per judge’s decision. Don’t worry...we will make certain that classes are divided when necessary. After all, we don’t want any judges pulling their hair out! When classes are split, PLEASE do NOT add more horses to the table.

OF Plastic Division:  Open to ALL  original finish types, to include Breyer, Stones, Collecta, etc. Types *will* be split if entries warrant.

YOU MUST HAVE COLLECTABILITY DOCUMENTATION. IF THERE IS NO DOCUMENTATION BY YOUR HORSE, IT WILL NOT BE JUDGED FOR COLLECTABILITY. Collectability can be anything from very limited runs, OOAK horses or even “old” style Breyer’s from the 60’s, for example.

AR Division: All artist resins, original sculptures and Animal Artistry resins show in this division
CM Division: All customized horses (any maker), to include cold painted chinas, will show in this division.

OF China/Resin: All original finish chinas (HR, Beswick, Lakeshore, etc.) and mass produced resins (such as Breyer resin horses)

CM Glazed China: This division includes custom horses from Horsing Around, AA/Alchemy, Pour Horse, etc. or individual pieces custom glazed by a single artist or any one-of-a kind china horses.
General Info:
No horse may show in more than one breed class. Foals may show with adults if you so choose. Artist resins and customs show together. Likewise, in breed classes, OF Peter Stones and OF Breyers show together.

Limit of 4 horses per class per shower in any halter class. If you wish to show more horses than the limit allows, please place $1 beside your entry on the show table. Limit 2 entries per performance class (no additional entries allowed). There is a strict limit of 4 horses in the Peter Stone & Breyer Collectibility section. There will be 3-4 judging rings going simultaneously, but don’t stress...we are laid back! We cannot, however, hold classes because you are trying to cross enter breed or performance entries in Workmanship and Collectibility classes. Feel free to bring "extras" for those classes in case your horse cannot make it in time.

Grands/Reserves in each breed division will be named and an Overall Judge’s Choice (1 per judge) will be determined under each judge. The “Judge’s Choice” is selected based on the judge’s preference - a horse that they would love to take home and add to their collection, so to speak. We promise we won’t let the judge’s run away with your beloved horses :)

There are NO additional fees to enter fun classes!  Raffle items will be available & tickets are 1 for $1; 6 for $5; 30 for $20. Your support of the raffle helps make Palmetto State the great show that it is!

Youth entrants do not earn NAN cards. Youth may show in their division only, with the exception of Fun Classes. In the Youth Performance Division - only Breyer tack or tack made by the youth entrant is allowed. Youth may only show regular run mass produced plastic horses (Breyer, Stone, CollectA, etc) or regular run china/resin horses (HR, Breyer porcelains). Breyerfest and similar limited run horses are allowed to be shown by youth entrants as long as the run exceeds 2500 or more. Youth are required to bring their own table. If this presents a problem, please contact show hostess and we will see what arrangements can be made. Show hall has plenty of chairs!

We will break for lunch at approximately noon for 1 hour. Show is typically over around 5-6pm.

Tags: String tags or Index cards with the following: Horse’s name, breed, gender & your full initials all on one side (preferred). Don’t go out and re-do all your tags if this isn’t exactly how you have yours...just LMK and we’ll see what we can work out.
