CHAPS(UK) run a Grading scheme for stallions and mares. Ungraded stallions 4 years old and over may not compete in CHAPS classes; are not recognised as breeding stock and will not be issued with covering certificates.
CHAPSUK run a series of Youngstock Evaluations throughout the year and at various venues around the country. (see Youngstock Evaluations page).
Colts (3 years old and under) that do not fulfil the pedigree requirements as laid out in the Grading Rules and Guidelines booklet may be put forward for Grading if, in the opinion of the CHAPS UK Grading Committee, they have demonstrated they are worthy of consideration by:
- Their own exceptional performance
- Progeny performance or
- Attaining a First Premium in Youngstock Evaluations – at least one of these must include a BREEDING evaluation as a 3 yr old
