The next line starts with elements that the horse was judged on, Characteristics, group, numbers and then characteristic.
The numbers scale the horse’s element from 5-45 where 25 is average. The characteristic on the left and right describe the element. So for Head it can rage from Plain (5) to Noble (45) and where the judge feels the horse is compared to all the other horses in the breed is where he puts the score this score was 30 so the head is a little more noble than average (25). The Breed ideal is in the shaded areas (35,40, 45). The group that the head belongs in is Racial. That score will help calculate the racial score at the bottom of the page.
The characteristics on the linear score sheet change from time to time but not very much. The desired score for each element can also change depending on what the judging committee decides is important for the breed to be it’s strongest. The characteristics listed here are the ones for 2009’s keuring. If we notice changes we will try to post them once we have our score sheets available.
As you can see that there are a several elements in a group. The Racial will add up to the score for Racial Type. The frame will add up for a Frame score, The Beenw will add up for the Feet and Legs score. The Walk for Walk and Trot for Trot.
Below you will see how the judge used the scores above to create a score from 1-10 (½ points are also given ex. 6.5) for the Race Type, Frame, Feet & Legs, Walk and Trot.
