Equine Influenza and Tetanus vaccinations are a compulsory requirement for all horses attending Stanhope Showground. The requirement for the first 3 vaccinations is as follows: the first 2 vaccinations 21 – 92 days apart, a third booster between 150-215 days, and an annual booster vaccination within 365 days thereafter. No horse should enter competitions within 7 days of an EI vaccination. Foals should commence vaccinations at 6 months old. This Rule may be subject to change from guidance from the FEI/BEF and any changes will be notified via the Showing Council and ASAO websites. The current FEI ruling is for a six monthly booster as opposed to annual; therefore it is recommended that you check with shows that fall under FEI regulation before entering e.g. Windsor, Hickstead, HOYS etc.

 All prize winners including 1st, 2nd, 3rd will be expected to take part in the Grand Parade.

No prize money will be paid until after the Grand Parade – to be collected from the secretary’s office.

 Winners of Trophies are solely responsible for their safekeeping & engraving. All trophies to be returned no later than 9.30am on Show day cleaned & polished.
