NHSC Sets New Fee Structure for Affiliated Shows



SHELBYVILLE, TENN. -- The National Horse Show Commission (NHSC) has announced a change in affiliation fees for the 2006 show season. For regular affiliated shows, the new structure reflects a $2 reduction in the inspection fee for each entry, with the show now be responsible for paying the DQP their fee and expenses.  This fee structure was used for many years at the NHSC, but for the past several years the inspection fee has been $6 per entry with the NHSC paying the DQP expenses.
     Recognizing the difference in shows across the country, the NHSC offers four levels of affiliation:
Regular Affiliated Shows (shows that give prize money):  The affiliation fee is $50 per day, Show Management pays the DQP their fee and expenses (the NHSC will pick up mileage exceeding 200 miles), Show Management pays an inspection fee of $4 per entry to the NHSC.
Special Affiliated (trophies & ribbons only):  The affiliation fee is $10, Show Management pays the DQP their fee and expenses, Show Management pays an inspection fee of $4 per horse per day to the NHSC.
Special “B” Affiliated (trophies & ribbons only): The affiliation fee is $10, Show Management pays an inspection fee of $6 per entry inspected with a cap after the same horse has been inspected the sixth time, the NHSC pays the DQP.
Sales: No affiliation fee, Sale management pays the DQP their fee and expenses (the NHSC will pick up any mileage exceeding 200 miles), Show Management pays an inspection fee of $4 per entry to the NHSC.
