  •  Schooling Show Management shall submit the final competition score sheet with complete listing of ALL competitor names, scores (percentages to 3 decimal places) and placing for all classes by emailing to the HDS Schooling Show Chair within 2 weeks of the completion of the show for posting on the HDS website and for verification of HDS year-end schooling show award eligibility.  It is REQUIRED that you use the spreadsheet on the HDS website.
