Advertising: Exhibitors are not permitted to display any advertising material until completion of judging. The exhibitor may then only display a maximum size of business card or similar on their show cages.

Handling: All animals must be handled with care and kindness. No rabbit is to be lifted by its ears or the scruff of the neck. The grooming of all breeds of rabbits must be completed and the exhibit penned 30 minutes prior to show commencement. The exception being long coated breeds, which are allowed to be groomed until 10 minutes prior to show commencement. No person/s other then officials of the South Australian Rabbit Association are permitted behind the barriers while judging is in progress. At the discretion of the Show Committee any animal that is unable to be handled safely will not be judged.

SHOWJUMPING REGULATIONS

Only healthy, tame, clean and friendly rabbits are eligible to compete in the Showjumping competition. Rabbits need not be registered to compete in this section, however all remaining Show rules will apply. Rabbits on any type of medication are not eligible to participate. Pregnant or Nursing Does are not eligible to compete. Rabbits should never be “pushed” or “forced” to complete a jump on the course and scooping is not allowed (scooping is determined as being a forward action of the owner’s hand behind the rabbit to encourage it to jump). Rabbits must be handled in a humane manner. Judges have the right to ask an exhibitor to step down if cruelty is suspected. Only participating rabbits will be permitted in the event area. Only rabbits competing in the class being run will be allowed to use the jumping equipment. The equipment size, height and order will remain the same type and construction for each rabbit competing in that class. Age: Competitors will be split into Junior and Adult groups depending on the age of the entrant/handler. Please take care to enter the correct classes as per your age as at 7th September. For additional rules please refer to the Showjumping regulations on page 2 of this schedule. Age groups are determined as follow. Junior group – You may be 14 years old or younger. Your rabbit will have five (5) minutes to complete each stage of the jumping course. Adult group - You must be 15 years of age or older. Your rabbit will have three (3) minutes to complete each stage of the jumping course.


RABBITS

Cleaning: It is important that each rabbit is well groomed, clean and long nails are trimmed before competition, to prevent contamination of the equipment or injury to the rabbit. Exhibitors must clean carpet and equipment thoroughly, if soiled, after the completion of the run.

PROHIBITION FROM EXHIBITING EXHIBITS NOT ELIGIBLE TO COMPETE

Any exhibitor, in whose rabbitry a case of Myxomatosis is confirmed, may not exhibit at the show unless the elapse of 28 days has occurred from the last death. Any exhibitor, in whose rabbitry a case of Calici Virus is confirmed, may not exhibit at the Show unless the elapse of 60 days has occurred from the last death. An exhibitor must not compete if they have had unexplained deaths in their rabbitry within the 14 day period before the Royal Adelaide Show. Calici Virus should be expected in any sudden death especially if more than one rabbit in the household has died. Individual rabbits will also become ineligible to compete if previously entered in a display or show in the 14 days prior to this event.

CAGES

Exhibitors must supply their own show cages. Cages must have a solid leak proof tray/base, which cannot exceed half the total height of the cage. There is no preferred colour for the bases. Wood construction of any type is not allowed. Cages should be designed and maintained in a condition as to not cause injury to stewards or the rabbits. All cages must be top opening and should be fitted with a 30 mm curtain ring on the front face of the cage to facilitate pen tag attachment. At the exhibitor’s discretion, cage curtains made of white cotton may be attached covering three sides only leaving the cage front and top clear. A cage curtain must not impede the stewards’ access. Cages are not to be marked with exhibitor name or stud prefix. Cages can be divided if the rabbits being exhibited are of the same breed and the size requirement is not compromised. The height of the cage should have sufficient clearance so that the rabbit’s ears do not contact the lid. A maximum height of 45 cm applies to all show cages. The size requirements below are a recommendation for the well being of your rabbit. Dwarf & Miniature breeds up to 2.25 kg (5 lbs) – 30 x 40 cm Medium sized breeds up to 3.65 kg (8 lbs) – 35 x 50 cm Large and Giant breeds – 40 x 60 cm The Show Committee can refuse cages of poor design and has the final say regarding the suitability of all show cages and curtains.

EXHIBIT PREVIOUSLY OWNED BY A JUDGE

No rabbit previously owned by a judge shall be eligible for exhibition under that judge until a period of three months has elapsed from the date of registration or transfer being recorded.

PENALTY FOR NON-EXHIBITION OF RABBITS

In order to prevent the non-exhibition of animals which have been entered for the Show, thus causing unnecessary preparation, expense and disarrangement of the Show area, any persons making an entry shall be liable to a fine of $5 in respect of each rabbit not exhibited, unless a certificate under the hand of the exhibitor or his authorised agent be lodged with the secretary of the Society before the day of exhibition to the effect that such non-exhibition is caused either by 1. the death of the animal or animals; or 2. contagious or infectious disease (confirmed by the explanatory certificate of a veterinary surgeon); or 3. becoming ineligible for the class in which it has been entered, or other reasonable cause. The non-payment of such will debar all persons owing from exhibiting at future exhibitions of the Society.

SAFETY

All attempts will be made to ensure the safety of the competing rabbits. Fencing will be erected to allow adequate space for both Judges and handlers, however it is the exhibitors responsibility to ensure the safety of their rabbit at all times. It is requested that handlers remain calm and that noise is kept to a minimum during competition.

LIABILITY

All rabbits are entered at the risk of the owner. The RA&HS and the SARA Inc. will take all due care but accept no responsibility for the health and well being of rabbits attending the Show.

FEED AND WATER

Owners are permitted to supply foodstuffs and attach water bottles to their cages as they see fit. The Vetting Officer, Show Convenor or other committee member may supply water to any animal if they feel it is necessary to do so. Water bottles should be attached in a manner that does not impede the steward’s ability to open the cage and remove the rabbit easily.

Your duty however, does not require disclosure of matter:•

that diminishes the risk to be undertaken by the insurer

that is of common knowledge

that your insurer knows or, in the ordinary course of his business, ought to know.


Important Conditions

Non-Disclosure If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure, the insurer may be entitled to reduce his liability under the contract in respect of a claim or may cancel the contract. If your non-disclosure is fraudulent, the insurer may also have the option of avoiding the contract from its beginning. Average Provision The insurer will pay legal expenses in addition to the sum insured, if however, the total amount of the loss (less legal expenses) ultimately paid to the claimant(s) exceeds the sum insured then insurers will only pay (in addition to the sum insured) that proportion of the legal expenses as the sum insured bears to the loss. Third Party Interests This policy will only provide cover for your interest and does not cover the interests of any third party (e.g. financiers, lessors, etc) unless the interests of the third party are noted in the policy. Waiver of Insurer's Rights You must not enter into any agreement without the written authority of the insurer whereby any of their rights to which they become entitled as your insurer after settling or agreeing to settle a claim are prejudiced or limited in any way otherwise all benefit under the policy will be forfeited.
