PRUEBA FUNCIONAL: A prueba funcional will be required for all bitted horses competing in the Champion and Champion of Champions classes.

EXCEPTION: Horses that have competed, in this show, in at least three (3) classes, under saddle will be exempt. It is the responsibility of the owner to assure that his/her horses have completed either the prueba or this requirement.

This prueba will be held in the main arena, starting 15 minutes after the last class of the morning on Sunday and will last for 30 minutes. Horses must be ridden in gait and within the marked boundaries.

The purpose of the prueba is to prove the soundness and condition of the Peruvian Horse, a working horse, by requiring this "moderate" workout before their Champion level classes. Horses will not be excused from the prueba for " suspected" lameness. They may be excused for humanitarian reasons only, by the show vet. Actual dismissal of unsound horses, except as noted above, will be only in the actual class by the Judge, with or without consultation with the show vet. Riders whose horses are not sound may excuse themselves. Neither the Judge nor the ring steward is to be present at the prueba. No person shall discuss the prueba with the Judge or show steward during the show. Spectators, however, are encouraged to attend. 

Everything is being done to conduct this show at the highest level and for the pleasure of exhibitors and spectators. The best adjudication officials to be found have been selected and they will award placement to the horses as they see them presented in the ring without regard for previous records or performances. The CRPHC is desirous of fair treatment for all exhibitors and in return asks for the cooperation of all in helping make this show a successful and enjoyable event. Every person who participates in this show is responsible for a knowledge of and is subject to the current rules and regulations of:
1. The PPHRNA by-laws
2. The PPHRNA Book of Peruvian Horse Showing
3. The PPHRNA Peruvian Horse Breed Standard
4. The PPHRNA Code of Ethics
All showing procedures and judging percentages as well as definitions, class descriptions, descriptions of gear and attire, rules and regulations, conduct and ethics and conditions for this show are described in the above named publications.
All Exhibitors, Handlers, Riders and other persons participating in the show are responsible for a through knowledge of all rules and regulations. Copies of the above publications can be obtained from the PPHRNA.

RESPONSIBILITY: All entries will accepted with the understanding that the CRPHC, PPRHNA and the Angelina County Exposition Center will not be held responsible for any loss, personal damage or injury to horses exhibited, or for any article of any kind or nature that may be lost or destroyed or in any way damaged. All horses shall be under the control and direction of the Show Committee but solely at the risk of the exhibitor who will be responsible for any injury that may be occasioned to any person or animal or damage to any property while on the grounds by any horse owned or exhibited by him and shall indemnify the management against all claims and damages of any kind or nature, including attorney fees and court costs that may arise out of any injury occasioned by any horse owned or exhibited by him or arising from any cause whatever including the negligence of himself or any other person in charge of any such horse.

JUDGE'S AUTHORITY: The Judge shall have the authority to place any horse in whatever position in a class that he thinks the merit of the horse justifies. The Judge has the right to make favorable comments over the public address system about the horses shown before him but shall make no negative comments.

SUBSTITUTION OF JUDGES AND OTHER OFFICALS: In the event that the Judge (or other official designed herein) is unable to perform his duties due to circumstances beyond his control or for any other reason, the CRPHC reserves the right to substitute another approved official in his place. 

NOVICE: For the purposes of this show, a Novice has won no more than a total of two (2) blue ribbons in any approved, pointed shows. 

MAIDEN: For the purposes of this show, a Maiden is a horse that has never won a first place ribbon at any approved, pointed show. 

JUNIOR CLASSES: Junior Classes will have two divisions for judging purposes. The two divisions will be 6 years to12 years and 13 years to 18 years. Age is determined as of January 1, 2003. Depending on the number of entries, the two age groups may be in the arena simultaneously but will be judged and presented awards separately for each age group. 

The exhibitor's potluck supper is a favorite at our show. The supper will be held in the foyer between the barn area and the arena on Saturday Night. The club will arrange for the main dish of meat. Please bring side dishes (chips, dips, salads, breads, vegetables, desserts, etc.). You may prepare the item or buy your contribution at a local grocery/store/restaurant. The Camino Real Club will provide plates, silverware and some drinks. Please sign up on your entry form (so that we can plan for enough food!) and join us for a relaxed informal meal, fun, and camaraderie.
