Age of Horse:
-Practice runs and training are allowed at the track prior to the race. However the track will be closed five minutes prior to the race starting in order to ready the gate.
-Any rideable horse is permitted with the exception of Amaretto Breedable Horses. I would prefer all horses look as real as possible for this event. Permissible horses include ABC Breedables, AKK Ranch, Hoof It!, Dragonsfyre, Lone Star Ranch and others. A rezzer will be provided for those who do not have any horses. If you are unsure, please bring your horse for an early inspection.
-All horses must be inspected prior to the race. This will happen one hour before the event. A horse that does not meet the above requirements can be disqualified. (Ie: Amarettos)
-Racing silks, historical horseback riding clothing (habits) and other period clothing are acceptable to wear for the race, please, no modern clothes other than racing silks will be allowed.
-Horses that fly will be disqualified if they fly during the race. Most horses that have that option can be set to no fly and should be done so prior to the start of the race. We want to make this fair and fun for everyone.
-Drop all entries into the blue mailbox on the front of the Pottery Shed building. LM: Pottery Shed No entries will be accepted via inventory drop as my ims occasionally cap.
-Entries are due by Friday, August 1st to be eligible for the August 2nd Race. No entries will be accepted the day of the race.
