Headstudy

This class gets it's origin from the Arabian Classic Head class but since it is model horse's all breeds, sexes and colors are allowed.

This class is to show off your model's photogenic qualities of the head, throat latch and neck. The desired photo should show a close up of the horse's head and neck and "not" extend into the horse's shoulder. The top of withers should not be visable, nor the topline of the back or any part of the horse's chest. The eye should be clearly visionable with no shadow cast upon it or the horse's face.

IMEHA has a very strict rule for headstudy class:
Headstudy classes are open to subject with or without headstall or bridle. Subject shall show head, throat latch and neck only. No chest, shoulder, topline or other body parts shall show within the photo frame. The neck shall stop at the top and bottom of base of the neck and no shoulder muscling or wither hair shall be visible. This ruling is strictly enforced and your entry will not be approved by the Ring Steward if it does not comply.

If after two shows the entry is still listed as "Not Approved" the entry will be removed by show management without consent of the entrant.
