The Arabian Horse Society is pleased to utilize the Ridden Scorecard for some Purebred Arabian & Arabian Derivative Ridden National Championships since 2016. Used to assess the Championship according to the class specifications of Type & Conformation (60%) and Performance (40%), the Ridden Scorecard will assess all exhibits on a scale of one (1) to ten (10) in the following categories:

Type & Conformation (60%)

  • Arabian Breed (purebreds) or Saddle (Arabian Derivative) Type & Quality (20%)
  • Conformation & Balance (10%)
  • Presentation (10%)
  • Soundness & Quality of Movement (20%)

Performance (40%)

  • Paces | Walk-Trot-Canter (10%)
  • Manners (10%)
  • Education (10%)
  • Execution of Workout (10%)

The Ridden Scorecard may be used to assess some purebred Arabian & Arabian Derivative Ridden Arabian Mares, Geldings & Stallions across all breeds, utilising up to three judges on the Performance Panel. All qualified exhibits will compete collectively on the circle and in an individual workout in the Championship Final, receiving a score from each judge using the Ridden Scorecard. These scores will be totaled to determine the Winners.

The Ridden Scorecard may also be used to adjudicate some Arabian, Arabian Derivative & API Ridden Championships in the Non-Pro division.
