Dear Mare/Foal Owner, Spectator:

Thank you for your inquiry about our 2010 Oldenburg & RPSI inspections. We are pleased to be hosting our 17th Inspection for Old/ISR, our 8th Oldenburg Horse Breeders Society inspection.. We are happy to say that our past inspections were quite successful and we had a lovely turn out of both horses and people and we hope to have you join us for this years inspections, either as a participant or a spectator.


back to top/menu
Our tentative schedule is:

Mares without foals for inspection

Mares with foals for inspection

Foals of 2010 for inspection that are with those mares

(we generally have two foal "classes" because of the number of entries every year.)

Foals of 2010 for inspection who’s dams are already approved.

Candidate premium foal call back-Please bear in mind that only a few premium candidates will actually be awarded premium foal. Being a premium candidate in itself does not necessarily mean your foal will be awarded premium status. Every year we have people get upset because their foals are candidates, but do not go premium. A 7.5 is an excellent score and its great if a foal is a candidate-the call back helps the judges pick the best of the best so again remember if your foal goes premium Congratulations, if not you still have a very good score!

Yearling and older foals for inspection

Branding and Paperwork

Its always a lot of work, really really hot, a long day and exhausting, but lots of fun, we meet great people, see good horses and learn a few things too.

Presentation of Mares and/or Foals
back to top/menu

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) Handlers should enter when the jury indicates, and bring the horse to stand in front of the jury with the left side toward the jury. The handler should stand in front of the horse and position the horse in an open stance which allows the jury to see all four legs. The handler should, of course, be aware of the safety of the jury.

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) When the jury indicates, the handler should lead the horse at the walk straight away from the jury and from the end of the triangle, return to the jury. Both horse and handler should "stride out", the goal being to show good length of stride and correct rhythm. The reins should be carried in the right hand. Horses should be turned to the right with the handler staying on the outside of the horse.

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) When the jury indicates, the handler should lead the horse at the trot in clockwise direction around the triangle. The handler should be able to run with enough speed to match the natural stride of the horse. The goal of the handler is to present the horse to its best advantage - there are no penalties for breaking gait, not staying on the triangle, stopping or not stopping at the end of each side.

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) Mares with weanlings on side should be brought to stand in front of the jury first. The weanling should be on a halter and have its own handler. When the jury indicates, the handler may turn the weanling loose. The handler of the mare should lead the mare at the trot in clockwise direction around the triangle. The weanling should stay inside and trot loose on the mare's side. It is the goal to show the weanling to its best advantage at the trot. The mare will not influence the judgment of the weanling. There are no penalties for breaking gait, stopping, turning around etc. of the weanling during presentation.

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) In general handlers should not be overly sensitive to advise from the jury which is aimed to the best possible presentation of the horses. Owners should consider to hire a professional handler (available at most inspection sites) if they are not experienced and comfortable in showing horses.

wNail.jpg (2641 bytes) As a courtesy to the jury and the spectators, handlers and anyone who will be entering the ring should wear a green ISR shirt or red OLDENBURG shirt or your 'all one color' farm shirt and white pants or alternatively white (ISR) shirt and dark blue pants. (to order ISR or OLDENBURG shirts). We suggest comfortable running shoes. All horses should be properly groomed and braided (weanlings optional).
