Conformation shows are automatically generated by the system for each breed on each continent every 3 hours.
Requirements to enter a horse in a conformation show
To enter a horse in a conformation show, you need to have at least 25 HRC on your bank account. And the horse needs to be in the same location as the owner. Since you cannot travel with your horses yet, this means that you can only enter a horse in a conformation show when you are currently in the same continent as your estate.
- Horse needs to be below 3 years old;
- Horse needs to be at least 3 years old;
Category: Stallions (and geldings)
- Horse needs to be at least 3 years old.
A real equestrian would always groom his horse before going to any kind of horse event, which means we've included the grooming of the horse in all scores. We've also included a show factor, which is kind of a random number that affects the total score of the horse. This is to make sure you won't have the same scores each time. And displays the horse's flair of that day. He can be grumpy and lazy one day, while the next day he might strut his stuff and show that he's the prettiest of all.
The score for the exterior of your horse is determined by checking the stats of the horse's body. These stats cannot be affected, however knowing the result can help you to breed better build horses.
While entering a conformation show, your horse is able to earn premiums and predicates.
- 1st premium: score of 80+ points
- 2nd premium: score between 70 and 79.99 points
- 3rd premium: score between 60 and 69.99 points
Since a most countries have their own set of rules within the horse registries, we decided to create our own predicate system within Horse Reality. The predicates are mostly based on the predicates that are earned by Friesians and Dutch Warmbloods in The Netherlands.
The game is still in beta phase and we're testing if thinks work out or not. Depending on the outcome we might change (some of the) requirements.
There are 6 different types of predicates to be earned:
- Sport (not integrated yet)
- Performance (not integrated yet)
- Clinical Approved
- Approved Stud (not integrated yet)
Requirements: Star predicate
The horse or foal needs to have earned 3 1st premiums.
Requirements: Proven predicate
In order to earn a proven predicate the horse needs to be at least 3 years old. The requirements are different based on the sex of the horse. Stallions can produce offspring more easily than a mare, which would give them an advantage if it would be the same.
- At least 8 descendants with 1st premiums in her offspring
- Or at least 1 Approved stud in her offspring
- At least 20 descendants with 1st premiums in his offspring
- Or at least 3 Approved studs in his offspring
Requirements: Clinical Approved predicate
The Clinical Approved predicate is for stallions only. In order to become an Approved Stud (not integrated yet), he needs to have this predicate. To earn this predicate the stallion needs to have good health and good quality sperm, which means that his health stats should be 75+ points.
You can only check this by sending the stallion to the veterinarian, starting at the age of 7.
