Showing &Judging Criteria

New and inexperienced showers may find this information useful and the experienced will find it a helpful for answering most questions.

Where does this horse go? Rare or unusual breeds and crosses can be hard to find the right class for. 

Download the NAN Breed Cross Reference list from  

Breed documentation is encouraged for rare breeds and unusual colors, coat patterns & crosses. Feel free to also identify any special variation to mold or original finish you feel would be of importance, in a corner of your 3x5 index card. COA’s and other identifying paperwork are not required, as no collectability cards will be offered for this particular show.  Please keep documentation and pocket horse breed books to no more than one 8.5” x 11” sheet size space.

Horses that tend to lean or are tipsy are suggested to be laid down with padding that is not excessive to the models outline. Judges may wish to see the other side and pick up your model. If you wish not to have your model handled, please make a note next to your model. Please place these models in the center of the table if you can. (Ex- Hanoverian, Weather Girl, SB Pacer, Huck)

OF Plastic Halter judging criteria:

Horses will be judged first upon the representation of the Breed, in regards to the breeds build type, and acceptable colors. Conformation is an important factor, but there will also be due credit given for breed-correct vintage models who have managed to maintain their condition, even though they may not possess the conformation & detail of more modern sculptures. Models will be judged for finishing details (Eyes, Masking, Shading, Seams, Straight legs, ect) and most importantly, Condition. Rubs, scratches, visible restoration work, poor factory flaws, staining, badly yellowed and seam splitting will not be considered.

We ask that models be clean, with no dust, hair or water spots.

Horses supported by bases or any other stands are not required to have the factory original. Only the model is being judged, display and present your model in the way best to present its qualities.

Minis are considered Stablemate/Little-Bits/Winners Choice/Mini Whinnies/Pebbles/Curio sizes and smaller. All other scales should show in the regular classes.

Breed-appropriate Halters and leads are acceptable, but may be requested by a judge to be quickly removed to assess the head, especially in a Callback. No handlers or other props on/with OF plastics please.

A mirror and flashlight may be used to see the back-side & under-side of your model when considering for a placement in a tough class.

Please identify your model with a white ID string leg tag. DO NOT place your leg tag showing YOUR name up. Blank, horses name, gender & breed is fine on the up facing side. It is not mandatory, but highly suggested! Leg tags are best placed on the hind off-show side of your model
