Preparation for the inspection
All horses must be fit enough to take part in the inspection and be sufficiently prepared. They should not be over or underweight and should be well-handled. Feet should be carefully trimmed and shoes should be in good condition. Tack must fit the horse. Handlers should bring lungeing equipment and tendon boots with them. They should be neatly attired. A hard hat, stout shoes or boots and gloves are strongly recommended.

On arrival at Warwickshire College
Many people choose to arrive on the evening prior to the inspection. A stable will be booked for you unless you tell us that you do not need one.
There will be a small team on site setting up the jumping lane until about 7 p.m., together with the stable manager. If you wish to check your horse in with the administration team when you arrive, please see Heather Chaplin, Sue Benson or Carol Rudd.

Read the 'Guidance Notes' thoroughly.

Bernard Leckie Symonds, the late husband of our retired President and enthusiastic supporter of the Irish Draught, always took a keen interest in colts and stallions. When Bernard passed away in 2007, he left a generous bequest in the form of the B.L.S. Stallion Awards (GB). The B.L.S. Award (GB) comprises £200, a rosette and a card.

To be eligible for the BLS Award, colts and stallions MUST:

• have been bred in Great Britain and hold an IDHS(GB) passport;
• either on inspection day or on appeal, meet the veterinary and inspection requirements for Class 1 in the Main Studbook;
• be owned by members who are permanently domiciled in Great Britain.

The award will usually be made on the day, in the indoor arena, after the conclusion of the inspections.
