2017 Inspection Application and Site Calendar
The owners of all horses entered in the 2017 inspections will need a 2017-2018 FHANA membership.
The form Includes applicable inspection fees and payment information, application and waiver. If you have more than seven (7) horses to be inspected, use multiple copies of page two of this form. Please make sure to include the signed waiver with your inspection application.
KFPS/FHANA does require a minimum of 25 horse entries per site. If a site has less than 25 entires it may be in jeopardy of being cancelled. If a site is cancelled for this reason a decision will be made by Aug. 15th, 2017 at which point all entries will have the option of attending another site, or they will receive a full refund.
Please remember to check with your site host for any additional facility forms or fees.
This handbook will assist you with all of your planning for the upcoming inspections. This will answer questions about grooming, what to bring, when to be there, who to contact, and everything else we could think of to assist you.
All Horses will be judged in the triangle. Here are the proper dimensions of the triangle.
Linear Score Explanation
Have you received a linear score sheet for your horse? Here is a line by line explanation. Please remember that Linear Score Sheets are only done once in the lifetime of a Friesian - usually at three years of age.
When horses (other than foals) are inspected, the FPS requires that the height of the horse be measured. If there is no height measurement, the registration document will not be issued. Occasionally, members will leave the inspection site without having the height of their horse measured. This form provides a means for documenting the height of a horse as measured by a veterinarian. The FPS has agreed to accept this certification of height.
