Clydesdale Shoe Navigation




  • A horse must place at a qualifying show.
  • Shows are ranked AA, A, B, and C levels. 
  • To qualify, the horse must place in the top 4 places at an AA show, top 3 at an A show, top 2 at a B show, and win the class at a C show.
  • This includes all classes regardless of which breeds and sex compete.  For instance a Clydesdale placing 2nd in a Clyde/Percheron class does not qualify for 1st place Clydesdale.
  • Once a horse is qualified, the owner fills out and submits the entry with an un-retouched photo.
