  • Before commencing the entry process please ensure that you have read the Competition Schedule, and the class details and rules relating to the class(es) you wish to enter.  Please ensure that you also read the general rules and regulations section of the Competition Schedule, as it is a condition of entry that you agree to adhere to them.

     2. Under the “Animal Details” section you must enter your horse’s name, registration details, colour, breed code, age, and you will also be given the opportunity to indicate if your horse is for sale or not.  [If entering a class which is linked to the Pembroke Cup or Traditional Irish Championship a prompt will appear for you to denote your horse’s eligibility.  This prompt will appear only for the applicable classes and you should read the specific rules to determine if your horse is actually eligible.  Please note final confirmation of eligibility will be confirmed by the Equestrian Department].

     3. You must then proceed to enter the “Breeding Details” section for your entry. You will be required to provide the breeder’s name and address (if bred by the owner an option to tick “bred by exhibitor” is available); the name of sire, dam and dam sire and the breed codes for each will also be required under this section.
