DBS Certificates will be awarded to all Champion Donkeys at the DBS AGM held in November each year and special rosettes will be awarded by the DBS at the Annual Championship Show to the qualifying donkeys in attendance.

Donkey Breed Society In Hand Champion Qualifier

The In-Hand Champion Donkey at this show automatically qualifies for the relevant Championship at the DBS Annual Supreme Championship Show, provided it is owned by a member of the DBS. A Donkey may win more than one DBS Championship at Shows but will qualify only once for the DBS Supreme Championship Show. Where the In-hand Champion Donkey has previously qualified, the Reserve In-hand Champion Donkey will be deemed the Qualifier. If the Reserve Champion has also previously qualified, the judge will select another donkey from the In Hand Championship line up as the qualifier for the DBS Annual Supreme Championship Show.
