ECAHO is organizing Judges Course Level I that will be held on 5.-6. April 2014 in Brussels (near Brussels Airport).
Eligible for this course are National Judges who have already gathered some experience as national judge or probationer. All applicants need to have the approval / recommendation of their National Arab horse organisation (member of ECAHO) to participate in this course. Only participants with sufficient experience will be accepted.
Judges Course Level I is the first step to become an ECAHO B list judge. It includes lectures, exams and interviews to assess the basic knowledge in horsemanship, conformation, type and language skills; it is a „hotel course“ without any judging practices.
Teaching language: English
Instructors: Marianne Tengstedt, Renata Schibler and Ferdinand Huemer
The course is full! No more participants will be accepted!!
Mario Matt, very well known to all Arabian horse lovers showed in Sochi that he is not only successful breeder but - among all - excellent skier. In the breathtaking final he won the gold medal in Slalom!
We wish him further successes on ski slopes as well as in the show ring!

Dear ECAHO Officials,
the Executive Committee members decided not to support certain show(s) which are in conflict with the rules and regulations of ECAHO.
Currently the following shows are not recommended, some other shows are under discussion and may be published on this place later on:
- Bruges Arabian International Horse Event (7.-8.6.2014, Bruges, Belgium)
- Portorosa Cavalli (10.-13.4.2014, Sicily, Italy)
These shows are organized in ECAHO member countries without acceptance by the National organization and it is not possible to ensure that all the BB rules are kept.
Officials who will officiate at the above mentioned show may be suspended from the ECAHO lists.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact Executive Secretary.
Show concerned: Jordan Nationals, Royal Stable Al Hummar, Amman, Jordan, 16.-17. May 2013
Gold winners of the above mentioned show were automatically selected for dope testing. The analysis found presence of OXYPHEBUTAZONE and PHENYLBUTAZONE at samples of all 4 tested gold winners. Oxyphebutazone and Phenylbutazone are classified as "controlled substances" under the FEI equine prohibited substance list. No medicamentation form had been supplied for the substances.
Horses were all tested positive, but due to a severe formal fault from organizer in the testing procedure the horses could not be sanctioned as such ones, disqualified, but only given sanctions.

The Show organizer can fill in all the information about the show and publish it in few minutes on the website. Once the horses are entered, the show organizer can adjust the classes, combine or split them, the project offers automatic champion selection, various ranking systems to fill the points and many other features than can make the life of Show organizer easier. It is also in offline version for show not having internet access on the show ground. After the show, it is possible to export the results in the format required by ECAHO (or the results can be directly download by ECAHO Office).
