Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show

Qualifying Requirements

Adult Amateur and Junior Exhibitor Hackney/Harness Pony Pleasure Driving Divisions

1. All ponies must qualify to compete in the Adult Amateur and Junior Exhibitor Hackney Show
Pleasure Driving Divisions of the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show.

1. Ponies will be entered in these Divisions only if they have been shown in a minimum of six (6)
classes, in three (3) or more different competitions, in the Hackney Show Pleasure Driving or
Hackney Country Pleasure Divisions, beginning July 1, of the year before the Kentucky State Fair,
through June 30, of the year of the Kentucky State Fair. The same pony may qualify and enter
and/or compete in both the Junior Exhibitor and the Adult Amateur Show Pleasure Driving
Classes at the Kentucky State Fair. Qualification will not be required for ponies four years old or
under competing in the Adult Amateur Junior Hackney Show Pleasure Driving classes.

1. Ponies that are to be shown in the Adult Amateur and/or Junior Exhibitor Hackney Show Pleasure
Driving Division at the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show will be required
to qualify by showing in a minimum of six (6) classes at three (3) or more shows. A pony may
show in junior exhibitor, adult, novice, local, or limit classes in the Hackney Show Pleasure or
Country Pleasure Driving Divisions, with all classes to count toward qualification. Pleasure pony
under saddle, park pleasure driving, and open breed pleasure driving classes will not be considered
as qualifying classes. The pony may qualify by showing in any combination of Adult Amateur
and/or Junior Exhibitor Hackney Show Pleasure Driving or Hackney Country Pleasure driving
classes, as long as the pony is shown in a minimum of six (6) classes, at three (3) or more different
competitions. Classes at the Kentucky State Fair will not count as qualifying classes for the next
Kentucky State Fair.

1. Any class added to a qualifying show’s schedule after the prize list, class sheet or class schedule
has been printed and/or posted on the show’s web site, Facebook page, etc., will be allowed to
count as a qualifying class for Kentucky State Fair’s World’s Championship Horse Show as long
as notification is made at least 2 weeks in advance to KSF show management, the American
Hackney Horse Society Executive Secretary, and exhibitors. Classes denoted as “buy a class” or
“TBA” are considered added classes and therefore will not be counted unless the prior notification
process is followed. Classes that are added during the week a horse show is scheduled to be held
will not count for qualifying.

1. Qualifying information for the Adult Amateur and Junior Exhibitor Hackney Show Pleasure
Driving Divisions will be contained in the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse
Show Premium Book.

1. All Hackney ponies competing in any competition, regardless of whether such competition is a
USEF licensed competition, will be eligible for consideration. In order for a competition to be
considered, a representative of that competition must notify the American Hackney Horse Society
as to the dates, location, and contact person of the competition at least two weeks before the
competition is to be held. The secretary or the manager of said competition is responsible for
sending in the results to the American Hackney Horse Society within ten (10) days after the
competition and by the closing date of the qualifying period. Results will not be accepted
(regardless of the postmark or meter date) by the American Hackney Horse Society that are
received in the office after the closing date of the qualifying period. Any exhibitor wishing to
check their qualifying status may do so by contacting the Executive Secretary of the AHHS.

1. Only classes and shows accumulated during the qualifying period in the Hackney Show Pleasure
Driving Division or the Hackney Country Pleasure Driving Division will count toward qualifying
for the Kentucky State Fair. Classes and shows accumulated during the qualifying period remain
with a pony, regardless of any change(s) of ownership.

1. The exhibitor will be required to submit a list of the six (6) classes and three (3) competitions with
their entries for the Kentucky State Fair.

1. The Executive Secretary of the AHHS and the AHHS Registry Committee will verify the
eligibility of each pony entered in the Adult Amateur and Junior Exhibitor Hackney Show
Pleasure Driving Divisions as soon as possible after the close of entries for the Kentucky State
Fair World’s Championship Horse Show.

1. The Kentucky State Fair reserves the right to resolve any dispute as to the accuracy of eligibility
to determine which ponies are deemed eligible to compete.

1. The Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show is a member of the USEF, and
therefore, subject to all USEF rules and regulations.

1. The Kentucky State Fair reserves the right to make a determination to exclude a class from
inclusion that does not qualify as a Hackney Show Pleasure Driving Division qualifying class,
such as any of the following: “open pleasure driving”; “park pleasure driving”; “open to all breeds
pleasure driving”; “pleasure pony under saddle”; opportunity classes, or any class other than
Hackney Show Pleasure Driving or Hackney Country Pleasure Driving.

1. The Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show reserves to itself, without limitation,
the sole and unconditional right to interpret any questions or dispute with regard to the
interpretation of the above, including any ancillary questions, without further recourse, and its
decision shall be final.
