Side Saddle Concours D'Elegance

Judge: Paula Keeley, Surrey 

The Surrey Union Perpetual Challenge Cup (2) will be awarded to the winner of this class.

The sole criterion for this class is the elegance of the picture presented by horse/pony and rider. Attention may be paid to the rider’s personal appearance, but detailed inspection of rider or tack is not required. Fancy dress or period costume is not permitted. Competitors are required to walk, trot and canter. No individual show is required, but the judge may ask groups of three or four riders to give short displays.

Four special rosettes will be awarded to the highest placed adult competitors wearing a silk hat, bowler hat, safety hat and the highest placed junior member of the Side Saddle Association carrying their current Championship Points Card.

NB. Silk hats are permitted to be worn by adults in this class at any time of the day. Juniors must wear hats to current British Safety standards or above for this class. Adult riders not wearing such hats do so at their own risk.
