SHOWS with Pinto classes/sections
At the bottom of the page is a list of shows in your area that have Pinto sections/classes
and which are Horse of the Year Qualifying Shows.
The horses owner/leasee must be a current financial member
(check on the members list if you are unsure)
And the horse must be registered (check on the registered horses list if you are unsure) to compete at all A&P shows and RAS affiliated shows in the Pinto section
Horse of the Year qualification and attendance information is under
Horse of the Year on the menu
This season there will be some shows who have the Saddle Hunter and Show Horses classes replaced. To try and include more types of Pinto's.
Saddle Hunter will be replaced with Heavyweight e.g. any heavy type horse, hunter, cob etc
Middleweight is for horses that are inbetween heavyweight and lightweight, Riding Horse types
Show Horse has been replace with Lightweight.
Most shows will have Lightweight and Middleweight combined
Youngstock will stay the same judged on age not type
Hopefully this will be more inclusive to all the different shapes and sizes we have in the Pinto ring. Like everything we will assess after the season and make any changes required.
TRIMMING of whiskers and ear hair
RAS have implemented the rule NO trimming of horses whiskers and inner ear hair this season. The Pinto Society is fully supporting this.
