The Showing Register Training Classes

Classes 35 - 37 & Classes 47A, B & C

In a handful of our shows we will be holding The Showing Register Training Classes. Classes will be run on the following format: Exhibitors enter the ring and go round as a class, line up in any order. In working hunter classes, each horse/pony jumps individually and then all riders return to the ring and go round as a class, as per other showing classes. The trainer/judge will watch and give feed back on individual shows and then cover presentation, in hand technique etc.  Within these classes the judge will be talent spotting for the TSR Training Pathway which could lead to riders being selected for the TSR/HOYS Showing Master Class.
The Training Classes are open to everyone but to be eligible for talent spotting you need to be an Amateur (as per TSR definition) and have not competed at HOYS in 2012,2013,2014. You will be notified if you have been selected for the Pathway in the ring. Go to for full details and the TSR Amateur definition.
