Documentation help is here. This is probably more up to date than what you will see in the actual show packet links, as we ran into issues with storing documentation on PonyBytes.

Don't Use Real Name:The BBC shows forbid users from using their real names as their usernames. You can change yours here.

Enable PM to Email: We are actively sending PMs to entrants who have issues with their entries, to try to help them. Please make sure you have your options set so that you get emails when we send you a new PM. It will save you so much time! Smile

EVENT Info for Advanced Users: The following information is missing from Breyer's site, and it is intended only for experienced users of PonyBytes who are seeking points. Those users add special info to their photos' Description fields, including ID and EVENT info, and that is explained in Formatting Text Fields: Advanced. If you are a new user or a Youth/Novice entrant, stick with the Simple method which does not use this info.

Hello Boot Campers! We've started this post to keep a list of questions and answers so far regarding the show. This post will continue to be updated as questions come in. 

Q: Can Youth/Novice show Classics/Stablemates as well as Traditionals?
A: Yes, all scales of Breyer models are allowed.

Q: How do I add a documentation link to my photo?
A: See the instructions here. Here are a few examples of how this might look:

Quote:NAME*Secretariat|OTHER* TB Stallion, documentation: 

Q: I signed up for one of the BBC shows but I don't see the shows as an option to copy my photos to, can you help?
A: Yes! There is a slight lag between when you enter and when we get the information about your entry, so we may not have given you access to the shows yet. Please send an email to and we will investigate.

Q: Can I show my overall champ or reserves from an in-person BreyerWest at this show?
A: No. But next year you can show any horse that overall champs or reserves in the photo show this year.

Q: Do Youth/Novice entrants need to put run information/collectibility information in photo descriptions?
A: No, documentation is not required and collectibility is not a factor in Youth/Novice judging. You may put it if you wish to get practice entering that information, but it will not affect placings.

Q: Do Youth/Novice entrants need to put breed information/documentation in photo descriptions?
A: Y/N entrants must have a named breed in the photo description, however breed documentation is optional. If you desire, you may link to documentation you have put together yourself or a site that lists the breed info.
