37C.  Plymouth County 4-H Open Command Classic

 Open to ALL exhibitors (WT & WTC riders ARE allowed in this class).  To be judged as a command class based upon the "NOW" system.  Riders will be given a command to execute - rider must not do the command until the command 'NOW' is given.  In the event that multiple commands are given at once (i.e: Walk, Trot, Halt), the rider must wait until NOW command is given and the rider is required to complete the last command stated (in our example the HALT should be performed).  Riders will be considered 'out' if:  they complete a maneuver before NOW command is given, movement of horse during a halt, incorrect diagonals, incorrect leads, or completing the incorrect maneuver.  The last exhibitor standing is considered the winner of the class.  Pinning’s will be based on when the exhibitor was called 'out' and pulled into the center of the ring.
