Poise, personality, appearance and
speaking ability are judged together at a suitable function at which the contestants are interviewed by the judges and give
a prepared speech. The topic for the speech is chosen in advance. Equitation is judged during a riding test which consists
of a compulsory pattern which is provided in advance. The written test contains questions pertaining to basic knowledge of
C.S.H.A. and general horsemanship. The questions are taken from the last published C.S.H.A. ByLaws & Rule Book, and the
C.S.H.A. Horseman’s Handbook. The test also contains appropriate etiquette questions.
