2016 Annual Show Program

Thank you to Laurie Monroe (GrafX by Laurie) for the lovely program.

NEW for the 2016 Annual Show and Inspections

In 2016, the Certificate of Pedigree was launched to certify horses of Irish Draught lineage that can't be registered due toi unapproved sires and dams. For the COP, a horse must be able to be DNA tested to a registered ID or IDSH to qualify. We are hoping to provide a *home* for ID and IDSH horses that aren't able to be registered but are active and valluable equines.

COP horses are being invited to compete at the Annual Show in the performance classes alongside the registered ID and IDSH horses, and will be awarded their own placings and ribbons, including a COP CHampionship. CLasses 1-7, 20-25, 77, 82, 85, 88, 89, 73-87, and 45-70, are the performance classes. Please mark COP on the entry form. COP horses are eligible for IDHSNA Year End Awards!

Horses must have received their certification from the Office of the IDHSNA by the time of the show. Please go to the Society website (www.irishdraught.com). Look under support in the top ribon, go to "Forms" and find the Certificate of Pedigree in the box and follow the instructions on the forms.

The steps are the same as registering an IDSH and if the sire and/or dam of the COP horse are inspected and approved at some point, the COP horse will be able to be registered as an ID or IDSH.
