    Agreements reached at the ANCCE board meeting held on January 22


    The most important agreements reached at the ANCCE Board of Directors’ Meeting held in Sevilla on the 22nd of January 2010 include:

    • Approval of the election calendar: The members of the Board considered two proposed dates: 10th of April and 22nd of May, the latter being voted by the majority of those present at the meeting. Subsequently, members were informed that the chosen date coincided with the Pilgrimage to Rocío, therefore, with the knowledge and approval of the majority it was determined that the definitive date for the elections will be Saturday, the 15th of May.

    • Electoral Board: It was agreed that Mr. José María Rojas Palatín be proposed as President of the Electoral Board. The said Board will be constituted on the 15th of March, as of which date, the candidatures will be presented. The time period during which candidatures may be presented will conclude 30 days following the constitution of the Electoral Board, as is laid out in Association by-laws.

    • There were important modifications in the Rules and Regulations for Conformation Competitions. All the agreements in this regard were unanimous:

    - Elimination of the knock-out round from all competitions.

    - Elimination of sections 1 and 2 in all category “A” and “B”, competitions, continuing only for this year in category “C” competitions.

    - Category “A” competitions must have a video copy of all sections recorded by the Organizing Committee.

    - Establishment of the competition categories for the 2010 season (See appendix 1 included herein).

    - Classification of judges (see appendix 2 included herein). The category of unauthorized judges has been created for this season, for those judges who have not passed the tests established by the Competition Follow-up and Control Commission. The aforementioned judges will not lose their category as judges, but to be authorized once again for next season, they must pass the established tests as well as judge at two competitions as practical experience.

    - Horses belonging to breeders who participate under their own name at any competition that is part of the Spanish National Championships and subsequently sell the said horse to another owner, may recuperate the ownership from the person who the horse was sold to, but that horse may not participate in competitions included in the Spanish National Conformation-Functional Championship for a period of twelve (12) months.

    - Judges will be assigned to competitions by means of a public draw held before a notary. The system followed will be: 

    Organizing Committees must inform ANCCE within no more than ten (10) days, the number of judges need at their competitions. Should they fail to inform, the number of judges used in the preceding season will be taken as a reference. 

    There will be two (2) draws per year. One in February, for those competitions being held up to the 30th of June, and the other in May for those competitions planned between July and November. 

    Category “A” judges are authorized to judge at all competitions.  Category “B” judges are authorized to judge category “B” and  “C” competitions while the category “C” judges are authorized to judge category “C”, competitions only.  

    All competitions held abroad will be judged solely by category “A” judges. 

    The draw will comply with the following:
    • Competitions with a single judge: two (2) judges will enter the draw and the Organizing Committee will publish the result with the name of the judge chosen fifteen (15) days before the competition takes place. The judge not selected will be considered the substitute should a problem arise (illness, incompatibility, etc.)

    • Competitions with two judges: Three (3) judges will be chosen at the draw. The Organizing Committee shall publish the names of the two main judges at least fifteen (15) days prior to the competition, while the third judge will be considered the substitute should any problems arise.

    • Competitions with three judges: Four (4) judges will be chosen at the draw. The Organizing Committee shall publish the names of the three main judges at least fifteen (15) days before the competition is to be held. The fourth judge shall be retained as the substitute should a problem arise.

    • To avoid any contingency and from among the judges that have not been chosen in any one month, two extra judges will also be chosen per month, whose mission will be to cover any vacancy that could arise.

            - Hoof grease/oil is permitted when presenting a horse.
            - A handler may be eliminated from of a competition, should he/she disrupts the smooth running of a section. 
            - New competitions will be categorized after the event, since the Commission will not know to what degree the regulations will be adhered to until the last reports from the judges, commissaries and Organizing Committees has been received.

    • It has been decided to accept the accusation the Committee has received and the proof presented, countersigned by the Council, against Mr. Alfonso del Casttillo, so that within the period of ten (10) calendar days, he must present his rightful allegations.  It has been decided that the final decision for the case presented before the Committee will take place at the beginning of February. Therefore, he is temporarily suspended from his duties. PROPOSAL FOR  JUDGE CATEGORIES IN  2010
