Judging

  1. To be judged on the driver’s skill: use of aids, control of the horse(s), accuracy, quality of transitions and gaits, with additional consideration of impressions of the turnout and driver.
  2. Tests -All the entries will complete a number of prescribed movements in order
  3. Entries must follow the designated track without deviation.
  4. Tests must be posted at least 1 hour before the start of the class.
  5. The judging for all Super Reinsmanship tests begins when the entry enters the ring/test area.
  6. Position and Aids -The driver should be seated comfortably on the box so as to be relaxed and effective. Either the one-or two-handed method of driving is acceptable. Common to both methods, the contact with the horse’s mouth should be maintained with an elastic, supportive hand.
  7. Drivers should not be penalized or rewarded for using one style over another. The use of the whip and the voice are important aids in driving and should be used effectively and discreetly.

Penalties

a) Failure of the turnout (all horses and entire vehicle) to pass on the correct side of a marked gate marker or dislodging any parts of a marked gate: 5 points subtracted from total score.
