New Patterns and Entries will be open May 23 at 8 a.m. CDT and close June 8 at 5 p.m. CDT

E-Show Judges: TBD

When you enter an APHA E-Show:

  1. Pay $25 dollars to enter each class and the optional $25 for a judge’s critique of your performance.
  2. NEW: Don’t want to compete? You can now choose to have your video critiqued ONLY. If you enter for just a critique, you don’t need to be in show legal tack and attire and can try classes you would not be able to normally cross enter into. Example: An exhibitor can enter to compete in Ranch Reining and submit a critique only entry for Reining, but can’t submit a competition entry for both Ranch Reining and Reining at the same E-Show.
  3. NEW: Select Big Money classes with $75 entry fee, choice of critique for $25, and chance at 80% payout!
  4. NEW: Select 18 & Under classes!
  5. Critiques include private, constructive, detailed feedback from an APHA-approved judge, no matter how you place — a great learning tool!
  6. Every class features a jackpotted payout to top-placing exhibitors, depending on total entries in the class
  7. All breeds of horses are welcome.
  8. All classes are judged according to the current APHA Rule Book unless otherwise stated. All equipment and attire must be legal, but silver and sequins will not count over a good working outfit. 
  9. No crossover in entry from any Walk-Trot class to any loping classes during the same E-Show. Also no crossover from Walk-Only Showmanship to Showmanship. Walk-Trot exhibitors may enter any non-loping class they choose. Walk-Only Showmanship may enter any riding classes they choose.
  10. No crossover in entry from any Ranch class into its corresponding Western Performance or English class  during the same E-Show (i.e. Ranch Cutting and Cutting, Ranch Trail and Trail, Ranch Riding/Ranch Rail Pleasure and Western Pleasure/Hunter Under Saddle, Ranch Reining and Reining).
  11. To compete in Performance Halter, exhibitors must compete in at least one performance class, excluding showmanship, at the same E-Show to be eligible. No crossover between Performance Halter and regular Halter classes during the same E-Show.

To get started, take a look at our classes below. Download the pattern or video specifications, practice and videotape your go, then return here to submit your entry form and videos. After judging is complete, you can receive an email with detailed feedback on your performance if you so choose, and a check if you place in the payout!

APHA E-Show Rules

1. All classes are judged according to the current APHA Rule Book (PDF).

2. Tack and attire must meet requirements outlined in the APHA Rule Book; illegal equipment is grounds for disqualification. Neat and clean presentation takes precedence over “bling.”

In all Western classes, exhibitor should wear western hat and cowboy boots, a long sleeve collared shirt and pants, ankle length or longer (slacks, trousers, jeans, etc.); shirt, blouse or showmanship type jacket with long sleeves and a collar (band, standup, tuxedo, etc.). A vest accompanied with a long-sleeve shirt or blouse with a collar, and/or a jacket with a shirt that has a collar, is acceptable.  Exhibitors wearing attire that has been deemed inappropriate by the judge will be given no score and their entry will be rolled over to the next E-show.

Optional Western Attire: The use of spurs, chaps, belts, and hard hats are optional.

In all English classes, rider should wear a long sleeved collared shirt and breeches. Breeches are to be of traditional shades of buff, khaki, canary, light grey, or rust (or jodhpurs), with high English boots or paddock (jodhpur) boots of black or brown. Black, navy blue or brown hard hat (with harness if jumping fences at any time on the grounds) is mandatory. Exhibitors wearing attire that has been deemed inappropriate by the judge will be given no score and their entry will be rolled over to the next E-show.

Optional English Attire: Hunt coats of traditional colors such as navy, dark green, grey, black or brown. Maroon and red are improper. A tie or choker. Gloves, half chaps, spurs of the un-rowelled type that are no longer than one inch and crops and bats are optional. Hair must be neat and contained (as in net or braid).

(Please see SC-195: English Attire, SC-200: English Tack, SC-235: Western Attire, and SC-240: Western Tack. )

3. Follow the class’ posted pattern/format and class filming guidelines; failure to do so is grounds for disqualification.

4. Videos must show a continuous shot, and clips may not be edited together.

5. Each video should only include one “entry” for a single class.

6. Video entries must be taped during the posted show dates and submitted by the posted deadline. Failure to do so is grounds for disqualification.

7. The judge’s decision is final.

Payout

All entry fees are jackpotted. $10 from each entry fee will go to the purse. Example: 50 entries in a class= $500 purse.
