Welcome to the first annual Angelus Estate Summer Show, hosted by mapal
's Firelight Stables and amour-interdit
's Somesmera Stables. AESS is a huge show designed to provide a wide variety of opportunities for horses of all levels. Please read the rules carefully before entering and have a great time
If you would like to donate any prizes please let us know. It might look sparse at the minute but trust me we will make it worthwhile placing in this show
- Registration is required.
- Fantasy breeds are allowed but flying horses or horses with flying abilities are not permitted in Show Jumping and Cross Country
- Horses should be over 5 years old
- Stables may enter a maximum of two horses per class. That does not mean divisions, but classes. So for example you may enter a horse in dressage intermediate and advanced, and show jumping elite and intermediate, but you cannot enter horses in more than two divisions per class.
- A horse may only enter one division in a class. So horse A cannot enter dressage intermediate and advanced.
- Horses may only enter in one discipline. If you think your horse is an all-rounder, then consider the Three Day Event.
- There is a cap on extra images. Please read the judging section for more information.
- The cap on how many horses can enter each class and how many classes a horse can enter is to prevent people from bombarding the event with entries to increase their chance of winning. You have two shots per class to win, so you need to put in the effort to make it good. We want quality, not quantity.
- Divisions: You will notice three divisions in the Dressage, SJ, and XC classes. This is to give a chance for more inexperienced horses to do well and for experienced horses to go up against others of their own skill level. To enter Intermediate, your horse needs no prior show entries but some training is recommended. To enter Advanced, your horse must have entered two shows in that discipline before, placing doesn't matter. To enter Elite, your horse must have entered three shows in that discipline and have placed 3rd or higher in at least one. To enter the Three Day Event, your horse should have competed in one of the included disciplines or at least have a training image available.
- Required Images:You must draw one image per horse per division entered, except for TDE where you must draw your horse three times, once for each discipline. You may create a collage of images for your TDE entry as long as the full body of the horse is included three times.
Eventing:Spurs are not permitted at Intermediate level. Correct attire should be worn for all classes. Double bits are NOT required, please use whatever tack your horse is most comfortable with. Bitless is permitted. Horses must wear both a saddle and a bridle.
See the show jumping and cross country obstacles here
. Where a jump isn't provided for the cross country, you may create one. Feel free to take creative license on the show jumping courses!
Held on Angelus Estate's 212 acre land, with two Olympic sized show jumping rings and two dressage rings. Training rings are also available as well as a vet center with aqua-therapy and a treadmill. Stabling is available for all show horses.
The show is held at the beginning of August and the weather will be a warm 21-26 Celsius, so please ensure that all horses are kept cool and hydrated.
The show jumping arena can be seen here

There is a cap
on extra images. This is to prevent sketchy images from boosting points beyond competition. Please read the following carefully:
- You may produce three extra images from around the grounds which are worth 2 score points each. These images must be fully shaded and with a hand drawn background to count.
- You may produce three training images for your horse's discipline that are worth 4 score points each. These images, again, must be fully shaded and with a hand drawn background to count. The rider should also be in view somewhere.
- Extra images of your staff at the opening dinner party or the award's ceremony will earn all your entered horses points. You may produce three images that are worth 3 score points each. The images should be fully shaded with a hand drawn background.
- You may produce three extra and three training images per horse. Drawing more than one horse in one picture will give points to all horses in the picture. Including horses belonging to other owners will give all your horses up to three 2 point boosts and will give the other horses from other owners that are included a 2 point boost also. You may only receive up to five point boosts in total from other people drawing your horses.
