If there is a tie, the following rule counts:

The bigger stock counts more than the smaller. If there is still a tie, the shorter time counts.

For example: You won the prize HIT Started or Open on June 6, 2021. End of time frame to win the HIT Started or Open is December, 12, 2022.

**High Combined calculation**

At a trial weekend with 2 judges, at least one of altogether 5 scores / 3 scores (see below) needs to come from the second judge. That means, should the 5 / 3 highest scores come from only one judge, the lowest score from this judge will be replaced with the highest score from the other judge.

Prizes are also given out when there is only one contestant in the class.

No Combined prize is given out, when there is only one class of stock.

According to ASCA rules they are counted as Other Breed if not registered with ASCA.
