Including a green horse class at competitions is primarily the decision of the organising committee however, the following recommendations have been made: 

  • A class called Horse Development to be implemented in its place that is open to all horses and incurs a fee.

  • A maximum of 3 minutes to be allocated to each horse. This time starts after the completion of the trot circle.
  • Gaits can be shown with or without a vaulter.
  • Judged with scores and or comments but no placings
  • 1 horse point allocated
