A factual book for small communities where non-professionals want to put on a horse show -- but a book informed on professional bases. The preliminaries are surveyed- the selection of committees, of show manager, of judges- and the duties and responsibilities of such. procedure is then analyzed, with the break-down of the classes, requirements for each, and notes on how to arrive at right decisions in scoring and judging. There is discussion, too, of the necessary data on the participants:- the horses, the riders. Show executives, judges, exhibitors, spectators- and that all-pervading governing body which sets up standards of procedure and rules. A glossary of terms is a useful adjunct.
