This year there is a new format for showing cards, as the former design was becoming less user friendly and often harder to decipher because of the number of categories in which one pony may compete, especially in the mini section.
On applying for a showing card, you will be issued with a card similar to your Membership Card, giving the pony’s details: name, age, height and reg. number. This should accompany the pony to all shows and should be available for inspection when requested. You will also receive a single ‘cover’ sheet giving further details, by post or email, which will not be required at shows. There will then be a separate sheet for each category in which the pony competes. These must be downloaded from the IPS website and found in Members Area : Members Forms, file name Showing Card Category. You can either print these and fill in the results by hand after each show, or save them to a document on your computer and fill in your results there, which will make it much clearer for whoever is in charge of checking your results at the end of the season when the entire document can be emailed or printed off and posted. This format will allow less chance of mistakes occurring and will also be a computerised document of your pony’s results, should you sell the pony.
For those of you who do not use a computer, a copy of the cover sheet will be posted to you on request, but you will need to inform Siobhan of the categories in which the pony competes, or is likely to compete in before the end of the season.
You can download further sheets when required but please number these in the space given, so that if a card is returned with just one page, numbered 2 of 3, we will know that some pages are missing.
There is a separate sheet for all categories for which points are awarded, including Associate Horse classes, Young Handlers and Equitation, and Championships, so do please record results under the correct heading!
