EquestrianHeavy HorsesClass HG651: Best Shod Heavy Horse Award
The competition, sponsored by The Worshipful Company of Farriers, will run concurrently with judging of the Shire Classes and Any Other Heavy Horse Breed classes.
The judge will examine each horse before or during the line-up for preliminary judging, taking into consideration:-
a) The condition of the feet
b) The making (or preparation) and fitting of the shoes
c) The nailing and position of clips
Normal shoes and showing plates are equally acceptable, provided they are suitable for the horse. The best shod heavy horse in each class will go forward to the Heavy Horse Parade for final judging and presentations.
