Judging Criteria:  
Each Perf class has title theme to inspire the entries for it. Do your best to demonstrate what that name means to you! There are no wrong answers, there are many ways to interpret the theme names. These are not strictly “performance classes”, they can be just fun or scenes as well. Just have a blast with tack/props/ dolls etc. Bring your sense of humor! Judges will be looking for interpretation of the theme, imagination and quality of execution. 

Halter classes will be judged on workmanship/condition criteria even OF plastic and china 
All plastic show together, all sizes show together 
Classes will be split on a case by case basis if warranted 
A horse can show in one division, one class per division 
Youth is 12 and under, all OF Plastic any make
Halter classes are color themed classes with a twist. All classes are named for sweet things and flavors that point to a color. You are to place your horse in the class that best represents its coat color. Forget genetics, forget the normal bay/black/ gray workmanship class list structure and look at your horse, does he/she look like chocolate or honey? Below are suggestions for placements in the classiest but are by no means gospel. Obviously in the case of patterns and unrealistic, those colors/classes are more narrowly scoped, so they don’t have as many choices. 
• Black Licorice (black, black chestnut, sunburned black) 
• Ganache (bay, dark bay, seal bay, dark brown chestnut) 
• Red Velvet (blood bay, red chestnut, red silver) 
• Caramel (golden chestnut, dark palomino) 
• Honey (palomino, blonde chestnut, buckskin, dun) 
• Cheesecake (cremello, perlino) 
• Marshmallow (white, light gray) 
• The Grey Stuff (dapple gray, dark gray, rose gray) 
• Turkish Delight (red roan, strawberry roan, rose gray?) 
• Blueberry (Blue roan, grulla) 
• Spotted Dick (blanket appaloosa) 
• Chocolate Chip (leopard and semi leopard appaloosa) 
• Rocky Road (tobiano, other) 
• S’mores (overo, sabino) 
• Gelato (other realistic) 
• Jelly Beans (decorator) 
• Gumdrops (fantasy)
