Durham County has a Sport Horse class, other than that it would be in-hand riding horse or hunter depending on her build/weight.
In-hand Sport horse classes are shown on the triangle - walked first, then trotted, supposed to go into the ring individually but some showing type judges don't have a clue and still ask to see them walk and trot round together :rolleyes:
There are SH breeding classes run by the British Breeding Federation. Horse needs to be UK born. The big breeding futurity is quite expensive to enter but the prize fund is very good - they do evaluations in quite a few places round the UK and premiums are awarded.
KWPN run three keurings (grading/evaluation inspections) in the UK - nearest is Myerscough for here. They need to be KWPN registered for the foal, yearling and 2yo classes. They can be put forward from 3yo on for breeding approval provided they are registered with KWPN or one of the world breeding federation stud book members (think the only UK based in the WBF are AES, Trakehner, TB and Hanoverian).
British Dressage also run a YH/breeding championship - it is July 12th at Addington EC in Bucks for the in-hand classes. Runs along the same lines as the BBF. I didn't take Belle and Peri last year as it was only a week before the KWPN keuring. Will be going this year - Belle is doing the in-hand yearling and Peri will do the broodmare class as she will be going to keep B company anyway (It's too far for 'Mr Nanny' George to travel - not fair to expect him to do a 4½ - 5hr journey twice in 2 days at his age).
