FAQ - What is the deciding factor for the classes to be added and/or dropped from the Time Schedule/Prize list? Answer: Classes Add: AHA, USEF, and USDF requirements are standard. Trend within the industry is monitored and evaluated in order to validate whether the classes will work in our environment.  We welcome requests suggestions, and recommendations.  Hudson Valley Manager and Show committee reviews and considers everything submitted, then decides whether or not to add these classes to the schedule.  We give these additions three years to develop, if after three years we see they did not have a valid number of entries that would warrant them being in the schedule - we will then either remove them or add them to the TBA list.  Where they can be purchased - and then shown in. *TBA Fees - are refunded to the exhibitor who purchased the TBA class - if there are at least three entries shown in said class - we encourage participation in the TBA’s as they are purchased. If prior to the starts of show, by Eblast, if purchased at the show announcing them throughout the day, and distributing and posting a list of these TBA’s daily      Dropped Classes: AHA, USEF, and USDF requirements are standard - These classes will always be available. If not in the time schedule, then they are available in the TBA list. With the exception of any class requiring a cow. Each year after the show is complete, the entries in each class are logged and compared to the previous two years. If after three years we see they did not have a valid number of entries that would warrant them remaining in the schedule - we will then either remove them or add them to the TBA list (complying with AHA, USEF, and USDF requirements), where they can be purchased - and then shown in. New AHA Classes AOTS- (Amateur Owned, Trained, and Shown).  Classes may be offered in any section and specifications are to be the same as the amateur class within that section.

In addition, horses are not to be exhibited, prepared,  groomed or schooled with the aid of or by a professional while on or off the competitions grounds immediately  before or during the competition.

Performance Halter - Link RESOLUTION # 10-15 SUBJECT: Performance Halter Requirements (USEF/EC) SUBMITTED BY: Competition Advisory Committee TYPE: Standard Whereas, Many breeders of Arabian and Half-Arabian /Anglo-Arabian horses breed specifically for performance abilities, and Whereas, In the opinion of the proponent, evaluation and rewarding of excellence in conformation and structure can improve both the capability and durability of our performance horses, and Whereas, In the opinion of the proponent, there is a need for in-hand classes, open to all divisions, and judged by approved Arabian judges, with the goal of evaluating the breed character and athletic potential of the horses shown.

Western Dressage 
Western Dressage is trained and shown in specific levels which build on each other and which reflect the development of the skills and abilities of both the horse and rider.

The collective marks are based on:     Gaits: the freedom and regularity of the horse’s movement     Impulsion: the horse’s desire to move forward, elasticity of steps, roundness     Submission: the horse’s attention and confidence, harmony with rider, lightness of                   movements, and acceptance of the bit     Rider’s position and seat: correctness and effect of the aids
