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.

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.

Please note that the list of divisions below are typical of most of our shows. Some shows may or may not have ALL of the divisions listed.

OF Plastic Division:  Open to ALL  original finish types, to include Breyer, Stones, Collecta, etc. Types *will* be split if entries warrant. For 2019, this INCLUDES Breyer resins or other Manufacture OF mass-produced resins (resin is a type of plastic, basically).

OF Collectibility Division: 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.
General Info:
No horse may show in more than one breed class. Foals may show with adults, if you so choose, when there is no separate foal division. Artist resins and customs show together, unless otherwise specified.

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). Please be sure to note any other class limits when reviewing the classlist.  There will be 4-6 judging rings going simultaneously, but don’t stress...we are laid back! We cannot, however, hold classes if you are trying to show a horse in performance and a breed class. Feel free to bring "extras" for those classes in case your horse cannot make it in time.

Multiple Grands/Reserves in each breed division will be named. There is no "overall" grand/reserve - we want our judges to maintain their sanity!

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.

Other Info:

There are hotels in the area if you Google the location.

There are various restaurants within a few miles of the show hall...Chick-Fil-A, Sonic, McDonalds, Popeyes, Taco Bell, Little Ceasars, Freddies, Highway 55, San Jose, etc. PLEASE HELP KEEP YOUR AREA TIDY IN THE SHOW HALL! If we do not keep the hall spotless, we will not be allowed to use it in the future. Thank you SO much!

Each show in the series will offer something slightly different than the previous show, so ALWAYS be sure to closely review each updated show packet as it comes out!
