Arrive at the Vanity Fair grounds early and wait for instructions.

In the Arena-Class
When the announcer calls your class simply ride your horse into the arena and stand on your assigned number in a big white square on the ground and wait for the judge’s instructions.
An objective score based on traits, rarities and other factors will be calculated the morning of the Vanity Fair and will display on the score board automatically as each class competes.
Trait Score – Automatically calculated based on rarity distributions. Up to 20 points total.
Coat Score – Automatically calculated based on rarity distributions. Up to 20 points total.
Judges Score – A subjective score determined by our judge(s) on the day of the event. Up to 60 points total.
The judge’s score plus the objective score will be totaled and posted to the score board. The winner of Best in Class will be announced along with 2nd and 3rd place winners.
When the announcer asks you to exit the arena, exit the opposite side from where you entered.

In the Arena-Best in Show
The Best in Class winners will compete for Best in Show at the end of the Vanity Fair. All Best in Class winners will enter the arena and find the numbered square that matches the class number they won and follow the judge’s instructions. One Best in Show winner will be chosen from the Best in Class winners!

Tell me more about costumes
Create your costume, as well as your horse’s, showing off your creativity based on the monthly theme of the show! You might want to start with a pre-made costume from SL Marketplace, but you can also just make your own in your own personal style instead. Costumes do NOT have to be elaborate. A costume can be as simple as using the bridle and saddle that come with the ABC horse and then adding a flower, a hat, a unicorn horn or anything that you believe is in line with the theme of the show or elaborate and fancy. It’s up to you!
