Kentucky State Fair Qualifying Changes



Changes for the Kentucky State Fair Qualifying System for the Pleasure, Park, and Western Invitations will take effect July 1, 2010 and will be applicable for the 2011 Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show. The changes are: the Western Invitation will become a regular class with the qualifying rules being the same as those for Park and Pleasure. The class will be known as Western Country Pleasure and will be limited to twenty-five (25) entries. Points will be the same for all the shows, with the exception of St. Louis, where only the Adult and Juvenile Shatner Western Pleasure Championships will receive double points.

Horses that are to be shown in Pleasure Driving will be required to qualify by showing in six classes at three shows in Pleasure Driving. If the Driving class at a show does not specify whether it is Show or Country Pleasure the class will still count, but four of the six classes for qualification must be in either Show or Country Pleasure. Park Pleasure Driving classes will not be considered as qualifying classes.

Classes and points earned in a division, such as three-gaited show pleasure cannot be applied to another division such as five-gaited show pleasure, nor can classes and points earned in western country pleasure be applied to English country pleasure. This does not affect or change the rule that a horse can show in juvenile, adult, novice, local, or limit classes in a division for the points and classes to count toward qualification.
