Foal to 2 Years Inspection

Registered SWB foals, yearlings, and two-year-olds may be presented for inspection during a SWANA Inspection Tour.  The ASVH judges will evaluate sucklings at the dam’s side, with the suckling free, and the dam in hand.  Sucklings will be shown in hand with halter and lead for evaluation of conformation, walk and trot.  Weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds show their gaits free and in hand. Two-year-olds are required to be shown in a bridle. They can be shown on the same track as the 3-4-year-olds.

The horse will be judged in six areas with a maximum score of ten possible in each area:

  • Type
  • Head/neck/body
  • Legs
  • Walk (in hand)
  • Trot (in hand)
  • Free Canter

Foals, yearlings, and two-year-olds will be divided into four classes:
Class I 45 points and above with no score lower than five
Class II 42-44 points with no score lower than five
Class III 40-41 points with no score lower than five
Class IV <40 points or any single score lower than five

Class III and above registered SWB horses only are eligible for branding.

See the Fee Schedule for inspection fees. (The current fee is US $ 75)
