[PDF] ANCCE CUP ENTRIES
For the online entries: Go to the Private Zone for breeders on the PRE Stud Book web site, using your user code and password. In the section Competitions you will see the option SICAB 2019 Entry Forms. There, your stud farm information will appears, invoices, a list of all horses registered in the PRE Stud Book with their corresponding data so that with a simple click, you may select those horses participating in SICAB and the option to reserve a tack room stall or shed. There is space in observations, to indicate any other relevant information; for example, if you are still not the actual owner of a given horse but what to present it, etc.
Breeders may select whether they want their mares participating in the Conformation or Exhibition Competition to have a stall or a pen. The number of stalls is limited; thus, if you are interested, please check the corresponding box on the entry form. Requests will be attended on a first-come-first-serve basis, with Full-fledged members having preference until all stalls/pens are occupied.
Entries are considered final once they have been paid in full. Once paid, said payment will not be returned, under any circumstance, as the organizers foresee contracting needs with suppliers and use the number of horses entered as reference.
Should you be interested in reserving a stall as a tack-room, the fee is €200 for Full-fledged members and €300 for all other participants. Occupancy is subject to availability. The organizers are not responsible for theft. To safeguard against incidents, fully closed and locked tack-rooms are available (construction sheds) which may be shared by more than one stud farm. The rental fee is €400 for Full-fledged members and €500 for all other participants. As was the case last year, and given the damage to sheds at previous editions, a €150 security deposit will be charged, which is not included in the contracting fee. This amount will be returned once the keys are returned and the shed is in the same condition as when it was initially turned over. Nevertheless, should damages exceed the €150 deposit, these will be invoiced by the firm providing the service.
Remember that 21% VAT will be added to all fees indicated, whether entry forms or the reservation of stalls or shed.
The organizers do not have life insurance for horses. Please take note for this fact to take the necessary measures.
By law, all participants must have liability insurance for each and every horse entering SICAB 2019. Horses participating in the various ANCCE Cups, and being they are members of Spain’s Equestrian Federation, are covered by Federation insurance. No additional coverage is necessary. Horses participating in the Conformation Competition, Exhibition and Working at Liberty will have to purchase Liability Insurance through the actual entry process. The fee will appear included in the final amount due on the online entry form. Should you use the conventional (paper) entry form, you will need to add an additional ten euros (€10) for each horse entered.
Likewise, please be informed that any fees derived from travel costs and veterinarian care for horses to clinics pre-arranged by the Organizers—such as an emergency—said cost shall be paid for by the owner of that horse.
► EXHIBITION & HORSES FOR SALE
This year, the novelty is that there will be a specific area for those horses entered as exhibition horses and that are for sale. There are sixteen (16) spaces for stallions and another sixteen (16) for mares. These will be distributed in a preferential area in the marquee for mares and the first triangle for stallions. The deadline concludes on Monday, the 21st of October.
To enter one of these horses, the requirements include:
- Be a Full-fledged member of ANCCE.
- The horse must be registered in the PRE Stud Book in your own name at the time of the entry.
- Only one (1) entry is accepted per stud farm (stallion/mare).

[PDF] Enter a Horse for Exhibition and Sales
These horses will have an exclusive location that is independent of all other horses entered in the various disciplines, even when they are from your own stud farm. Once the entry deadline has been reached, and if all spaces are not full, then the organizers reserve the right to implement other measures.
The entry fee is:
- Full-fledged Members: €150 + 21% VAT.
ANCCE, by no means, shall be held responsible for theft in stands, breeder boxes, stalls, tack rooms, etc. As of Sunday, the 24th of November, when SICAB closes its gates, you are recommended to keep all belongings secured.
To enter a horse, contract a stand, receive stud farm documentation or participate in any way at SICAB 2019, the breeder/participant must be in good standing regarding all economic obligations with ANCCE.
