Guidelines for Performance

The Performance Guideline requirements have not been adjusted for the 2021 Show, so please enter all relevant performances in your online entry for the Horse Committee to assess for acceptance.
The RAS will accept all performances gained between 1 December 2018 and 25 November 2020.

Please note the following:

  • The RAS have a limited number of stables to allocate at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and stabling availability substantially determines the maximum number of Exhibits that we can accept into our Competitions.
  • The RAS has traditionally used performances gained according to its Performance Guidelines as the fairest way to select the best Exhibits and Competitors from amongst those who enter to compete at the Sydney Royal Horse Show. However, given the current circumstances, the RAS encourages all willing Exhibitors to enter for 2021 and the RAS Horse Committee will work to take all information into account in the fairest way they can when offering acceptances of entry for the 2021 Show.

For more information, please read the 2021 Guidelines for Performance document.
