If you put your horse in the wrong class, the judge may either 1) judge the horse anyway, 2) ask you to put the horse in the appropriate class, if that class has not yet been judged, or 3) disqualify your horse if the appropriate class has already been judged - it is the judge's discretion and the judge's decision is final!
OF BREYER: Horses that are molded in styrene, tenite, hard plastic, rubber, etc., and mass produced from a factory. The model may be touched up as long as it is not noticeable, but may not be altered in any other way. This division includes Breyer and any other OF Plastic model that is not a Stone Horse. This division is for Traditional, Classic, and Little Bit sized models.
OF STONE: Horses produced by the Stone Horse factory. The model may be touched up as long as it is not noticeable, but may not be altered in any other way. Stone Design A Horse (DAH) models show in this division, except for the DAH models created on one of a kind (OOAK) bodies. Those are considered OOAK and show in the Collectability Division. This division includes all Traditional scale models as well as Pebbles.
OF COLLECTABILITY: First and second place models in these classes will receive a yellow NAN card, which will qualify them for collectability classes at NAN. OF Collectability classes are judged solely on collectability/rarity; these will now be counted as NAN qualifiers. Note that no ANIMALS classes will count as NAN qualifiers. You must choose to enter a model in the OF Halter or OF Collectability, but not both.
COLLECTABILITY BREYER: For OF Breyer/ Other Plastic models classes are judged solely on collectability/rarity; this will include all OF Plastic Connoisseur models, BreyerFest Raffle/Volunteer models, and one-of-a-kinds (OOAK). Please see the collectability description above.
COLLECTABILITY STONE*: For OF Stone models classes are judged solely on collectability/rarity; including one of a kinds (OOAK). Please see the collectability description above.
*Please note, in this division custom refers to factory custom, not customs created by yourself or someone else.
**IMPORTANT** For all collectability classes, an information card is required, specifying name of model, maker, years of production, rarity, and/or anything that makes this model special. ANY MODEL ENTERED IN A COLLECTIBILITY CLASS WITHOUT AN INFORMATION CARD WILL NOT BE JUDGED!
MINI DIVISIONS: For SM/Chips and Micro Mini scaled models only! Any other scale must be shown in the regular division. If you have a SM (or smaller) scale OF Plastic model that is neither a Breyer nor a Stone, you can show it with the OF Breyer minis – but make sure it is SM scale! The judging ring for this division will be split into four or five quadrants, and the four or five classes in each group will be brought up at once. That way, the judge can judge an entire group and name Champ and Reserve without anyone walking back and forth.
** Exception #1 – Schleich and Safari models will be allowed to show in the OF Breyer Mini Division, so long as they are under 4” tall at the ears**
CUSTOM: Anything that was once produced in a factory and has been altered by someone outside of the factory. This includes all modifications done to OF mass produced bodies like Breyer, Stone (plastic and resin), HR, Hartland, BHR, Starlite, etc., from a simple repaint to an extreme custom. Cold-painted mass produced Chinas show here. This division is for Traditional, Classic, and Little Bit sized models.
OF CHINA: This division includes any model horse which was mass produced in a factory and is made of china, porcelain, earthenware, stoneware, cold cast porcelain, or any other china-like or resin-like material. As long as it was mass-produced in a factory and has not been repainted or altered in any way, it belongs here.
CG CHINA: Chinas that have been customized by glazing and firing --NOT cold-painting. This includes models that were custom ordered from a factory (like Horsing Around) or custom glazed by individual artists. Classes will be split as needed.
*** Note: Cold-Cast Porcelain is actually a resin, where porcelain dust is added to the resin. It is NOT fired, which is why it is called "cold cast." So, any OF model made of cold-cast porcelain is actually an OF Resin. Breyer has made cold-cast porcelain pieces as well as true, fired porcelain pieces. ***
ARTIST RESIN: This division includes all Artist Resins and Original Sculptures. Customized Artist Resins also go in this division. This division is for Traditional, Classic, and Little Bit/ Curio sized models.
PERFORMANCE: OF Performance classes include any OF models - plastic, china, or resin. CM/AR Performance includes Artist Resin and any other customized or custom glazed model (plastic, china, or resin). For Harness classes, vehicle not required. Obstacle required in over fences classes, and animal required in Stockwork classes.
***NOTE: All OF Plastic Unrealistic color models will show in the Collectibility Division.***
