Rules & Regulations

REGULATIONS – for Exhibitors

The Council will not be responsible for any error, which may appear in the catalogue, or for any entry being made in the wrong class.  It is the responsibility of each exhibitor to read these rules and abide by them.

The Show Society takes the health and welfare of animals seriously and has signed up to the ASAO Animal Welfare Plan.  This Plan relates to animals paraded, exhibited, ridden and/or for display purposes.  The Show Society will take whatever appropriate measures it deems necessary to ensure the best welfare conditions exist for all animals.  All exhibitors are required to ensure their animals are fit and healthy upon arrival and throughout their time at the Show.  More details relating to health and welfare matters can be found elsewhere in these Regulations.

  1. The printed entry forms and certificates to be filled in by exhibitors for prizes at the Annual Show shall be kept by the Secretary and every person intending to exhibit shall obtain the forms and send them duly filled in to the Secretary together with the appropriate entry fee and by the date advertised in the Schedule. No prize shall be awarded unless the exhibitor shall have first complied with this rule. Any entry received after the date above referred to shall be accepted only at the discretion of the Secretary and any such late entry that may be so accepted shall be liable to an entry double the normal entry fee [no exceptions].
  2. Any exhibitor or other person deceiving or attempting to deceive the Council by entering animals in the wrong classes, ownership or name contrary to these Rules, Classes and Regulations will forfeit the whole of the entrance fee, or any other prizes won by him/her at the Show except prizes won by exhibits correctly entered by him/her and will not be allowed in future to exhibit at the Romsey Agricultural and Horse Show Society’s exhibitions. The responsibility for correctness of all entries will rest with the owner or his/her agent and not with the Secretary of the Society for accepting such entry.
  3. Any exhibitor, or other person, deceiving the Council by entering animals which have been administered any medicament or drug thereby hiding their true mental or physical condition, will forfeit their entrance fees and any prizes won and will not be allowed to exhibit in the future. The Society reserves the right to test any horse or livestock exhibits for the presence of hormones or illegal substances, which may affect the behaviour, or performance of the animal in the ring. Refusal to submit a sample will be dealt with by the Society at their discretion.
  4. The Society vet will have the right to treat an animal if urgent attention is required and the owner cannot be found.
  5. Unless otherwise stated, exhibitors may enter an unlimited number of animals in each class, subject to the special conditions of the respective classes. However, cattle wishing to be considered for the Cattle Champion of Champions Award can only be awarded qualifying points in one ‘section’ of cattle (ie Open Dairy OR Native/Rare Breed, not through both)
  6. Every exhibitor of livestock who shall send for exhibition any animal which, to his/her knowledge is not safe to handle, or is suffering from, or has been in contact with any animal suffering from any contagious or infectious disease, shall forfeit and pay to the Secretary the sum of £1000 as and for liquidated damages for each and every animal sent, and in the event of the Society’s Veterinary Inspector certifying that any animal sent for exhibition is, in his/her opinion, a source of danger, such animal shall be removed with due speed by the exhibitor or his servant from the Showground, or be otherwise dealt with as the Veterinary Inspector may direct with a view to averting danger or the spread of contagion.
  7. ALL prize-winning cattle and sheep must take part in the Grand Parade, held at 3pm in the Presidents (main) Ring or risk forfeiture of prizes. The committee would appreciate it if exhibitors would also parade non-prize winners. In the case of sheep, a decision will be made on Show day as to whether it will be Non-MV Accredited sheep or MV Accredited sheep participating in the Grand Parade (due to enforceable accreditation regulations for the Show). Stewards reserve the right to remove any animal deemed unsafe from the Grand Parade. Cattle must not be loaded for removal until 4pm or prizes will be forfeited. Cattle will parade in order of breeds and classes as shown in the schedule.

No cattle exhibits are to be removed before 4.00pm. The Secretary has no authority to give any written or verbal permission for an exhibit to be removed. The Council reserves the right to reject any exhibit or exhibits not complying with this regulation.

  1. In cases where the prizes are offered or awarded conditionally, and in the classes for novices, they will be withheld until the exhibitor shall have proved to the satisfaction of the Council that the conditions have been complied with, and it is incumbent that the exhibitors prove the correctness of their certificates if required to do so. Should any exhibitor fail to do so to the satisfaction of the Council, the entry in question will be disqualified and awards made to it will be cancelled.
  2. In cases of any prize animals being disqualified, the winner of the next succeeding prize in that class shall take the prize that has been awarded to such disqualified animal. The lowest prize in the class shall go to the reserve number provided a reserve ticket has been awarded.
  3. Any exhibitor or his/her servant who shall refuse to obey an order from the stewards or who shall be guilty of improper behaviour shall not be allowed to compete, and the Council shall have the power to order the offender to leave the Show and to refuse that person’s entry for future Shows. The Council reserve the right to reject or cancel the entry or entries made by any person, if they deem it fit to do so.

No exhibits to enter the rings with any distinguishing mark save as allowed by the Regulations.
  10. In cattle classes, second and third prizes will always be awarded unless the judge considers the entries of insufficient merit. Should there be any recommendations not recorded in the schedule such recommendations will be decided upon at Council subsequent to the Show, but the recommendation shall not in any way bind the Council to award the prize.
  11. No prize shall be awarded when, in the opinion of the judges, there is not sufficient merit, and neither shall any premium be given to the exhibitor who shall not have complied with the Regulations of the Society.

  24. The term exhibitor will include persons taking part in any competition or display arranged by the Society, and the owner of any animal, plant, machinery, or other thing involved in such competition or displayer otherwise exhibited in the Showground. Save for death or personal injury caused by negligence of the Society, its servants or agents, the Society will not be responsible for death, injury, disease, damage or loss caused to an exhibit or to their servant or agent or to any animal, article, plant, machinery, or thing of whatever nature brought to the Showground by said exhibitor from whatever cause such as death, injury, disease damage or loss arises.

  30. POSTPONEMENT/CANCELLATION OR ABANDONMENT. Exhibitors shall not have any claim against the Society or any member of the Society in respect of any loss or damage whatsoever consequent upon the show or any part of it failing to be held or having to be abandoned (for whatever reason eg extreme weather, security alerts, etc).
