In the past days some questions arose around the presence of foals at the ECAHO shows. Although the rules are described in the Blue Book (page 4 – Foal Classes), there were some questions concerning presence of foals without the dams.
Foals in the foal classes under the age of 6 months may NOT be shown without their mothers.
The rule from the Blue Book is being repeated due to queries about foals under six months who are orphaned or rejected by their dams. There is no exception from the Blue Book rules to be made in such cases.
