An invitation to Friesian Owners:

Following the success of the 2016 Friesian Festival we would like to invite anyone with a Friesian to enter their horse for a weekend of Friesian indulgence. The only thing we ask is that your Friesian is registered with the KFPS and the passport is in your name. Members and non-members of FHAGBI are welcome

As lucky Friesian owners ourselves, we understand how loyal, unique and versatile our horses are. Slowly, between us we are spreading the word about the virtues of the Friesian and its popularity has increased year on year. But, there are always more people to reach, those who want to learn more about them and those that may never own one but want to be around them and see them in action. So please do bring your horses along and lets put even more people under their magical spell!

The official inspections will always be a fundamental part of what FHAGBI do and it will go ahead this year on Friday 25th August along with the IBOP Performance testing

ACTIVITIES

Drill Riding

Pamela Rigby MBE returns to Myerscough to offer some fun and informal training sessions to Friesian owners in the art of Drill riding. Pam has herself ridden Drill and runs a very successful equestrian clinic and training facility in Cheshire. She has a particular talent for getting riders enjoying their schooling and improving their riding while having a ball at the same time! Maybe by the end you will want to join the Friesian Drill Team GB formed after last years event?

For further information on the Drill training please contact Kim Begley kim.begley@hotmail.com

Mounted Games

So who says mounted games are only for kids on ponies? Let's face it, we know Friesians love to show off and they come alive with a bit of adrenalin running through their systems!

There will be an opportunity to have a go at a variety of mounted games, none of which you would need to remount for! Make up your own team of four or we will put you into teams once entries have closed

Displays

Friesian Dressage Stallions from the Netherlands

The highlight of last years show was the appearance of the extremely gorgeous Approved Breeding Stallion WALT 487. Don't miss this unique opportunity to see him, along with three of his stable companions, put on another spectacular display to music.

Friesian Film Stars

Friesian owners will be wowing the audience as they recreate characters from some of the films / dramas or even adverts where friesians have appeared over the years

KFPS Inspection Regulations - Download Here

Horses will be entered in one of the following classes - which class they are in is determined by the KFPS - in brackets are the awards that can be achieved:

*Premie judging of Colt Foals (1st, 2nd or 3rd Premie)

*Premie judging of Filly Foals (1st, 2nd or 3rd Premie)

*Judging for inclusion in the mare Studbook - mares 4yo plus

(mares may be accepted into the main studbook with 1st, 2nd, 3rd or No Premie.  Those gaining 1st or 2nd will also receive the STER status.  Mares with conformation defects, non permitted white markings or below the minimum height will not be accepted into the studbook).

*Judging for inclusion in the mare Studbook - mares from 3yo

As above

*Judging for the Ster designation for mares already in the studbook - 4yo plus

As above - this class is for mares already in the studbook - they may not have achieved Ster when originally graded but may have grown and matured so the owner thinks it may be possible to upgrade.  Please note it is also possible for a horse to be 'downgraded'

*Premie judging of Ster mares

This is for mares already holding Ster status.  A mare may be upgraded from a 2nd Premie Ster to a 1st Premie Ster.  A 1st Premie Ster mare can be judged for the Kroon predicate or Model predicate if she is over the age of 7 and has reared at least one foal.  The Kroon and Model predicates would be 'provisional' until the mare was able to achieve scores above 77 in a performance test (IBOP).

*Judging for inclusion in the Gelding Studbook

Geldings can be awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd or No Premie when being given entry to the Gelding Studbook.  1st & 2nd Premie geldings will also receive the Ster status

*Judging for the Ster designation for geldings already registered in the Gelding studbook

As above

*Watching of Yearling Foalbook Stallions

No Premies are awarded but judges will give their comments on the yearling

*Watching of 2yo Foalbook Stallions

As above

*Judging of 3yo plus Foalbook Stallions to become Ster

Stallions will not be awarded Premie's, they will either receive the Ster status or nothing.

IBOP Rules & Regulations

Responsibility
The IBOP is conducted by the Koninklijke Vereniging "Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek" (KFPS).

Purpose
The purpose of this examination is to establish a horse's suitability for various uses and to do so with the greatest degree of objectivity. Every horse aged four or older can be presented for this examination (riding test, driving test or show driving test). Participation in more than one test on the same day is possible. Horses can be entered for the examination via the KFPS. The results of an IBOP test can be used for obtaining the star, crown or model titles (see the KFPS registration regulations).

Location
The KFPS selects a location for conducting the testing and will arrange for any necessary equipment. The IBOP can be held indoors or outdoors as determined by the KFPS.

Countries other than the Netherlands
In some cases, deviations from the rules in regard to how the examination is to be administered shall be permitted for IBOP tests conducted in countries other than the Netherlands. Exactly what these are and whether they will be permitted shall be decided upon by the KFPS. Jury members must be qualified by the KFPS.

Participation
Regardless of discipline, a horse may participate in an IBOP no more than twice a year. This examination may be administered on the same day or on two different days. If the maximum number of two IBOP tests are being conducted on the same day, these will have to be in two different disciplines.

Presentation method
All tests will be ridden/driven individually. After the completion of the IBOP riding test, the participants will return to the ring in groups of two or three. At the request of the jury, the participants can be asked to repeat one or more of the components.
The tests as well as an explanation of the assessment criteria can be found in the most recent edition of the KFPS test booklet.

Training/basic condition
The horse being presented can be excluded for reasons to be determined by the jury committee (illness, lameness, etc.). The examinations can also be terminated by the jury committee if, in its opinion, the horse is not being presented or ridden in an acceptable manner.
The owner of the horse can determine whether he/she will present the horse him/herself or whether this task will be conducted by a third party.
Changing riders for various tests is also permitted.

Vaccination
Vaccinations should be listed in the passport. A vaccination certificate shall be considered valid only when it can be confirmed that it applies to the horse participating in the IBOP and when it shows that this horse has received the following influenza vaccinations:
A.   A basic vaccination series consisting of 2 vaccinations in which the second was given at least 3 and no more than 6 weeks after the first.
B. This is to have been followed by an annual vaccination that was administered no more than 12 months after the previous vaccination.
C. The last vaccination must have been administered at least 1 week prior to the IBOP.
Confirmation of vaccinations must be supplied in the form of a certificate signed/initialed and stamped by the veterinarian who administered the vaccination. The proof of vaccination (passport) must be sent for confirmation to the KFPS secretariat prior to the IBOP. Any horses that have not been properly vaccinated shall not be admitted to the testing site and shall not be assessed.

Members of the jury
The jury consists of two qualified jury members who have been appointed by the KFPS.

Results of the examinations
The jury will record its findings on a certificate. In addition to the scores, the committee shall also provide a brief explanation and any other significant information if necessary. To authenticate the certificate, the chairperson of the jury or another officer designated by the KFPS dates and signs it. The chairperson of the jury will notify the interested parties of the findings at the conclusion of the examinations. The interested parties will be sent the certificate after the test has been conducted.

The findings will also be published in Phryso and on the KFPS website.

KEYS TO SCORES
The dressage testing under the saddle will be evaluated in accordance with the regulations and dressage testing book of the KNHS, but the various figures (0-10) used for scoring the various components listed under the evaluation headings can be described as follows:
0 not performed
1 very poor
2 poor
3 fairly poor
4 less than satisfactory
5 unsatisfactory
6 satisfactory
7 more than satisfactory
8 good
9 very good
10 exemplary
The scores for each component shall be given in half and whole points.
