At the previous allluallllcetillg it was agreed, after much discussion, that all horses of five years old and upwards must on entry have a certificate sent from M.H. stating that the same has been regularly hunted and fairly ridden to hounds according to his views." On the motion of Captain Webley Parry- Pryse, Noyadd Trefawr, this rule was now- rescinded, it being also resolved, on his initiative, That no horse or mare having won £.10 or over in prizes the same year as the show, bo eligible to compete in the 12st and 13st classes." This resolution was adopted in order that the professional horse owner should not swamp other breeders of this type of hunter.—On the motion of Lieut.-CoI. Lewes, it was agreed (1) that the three year olds be led and not ridden inside the ring (2) all objections will be decided by the committee, and their decision will not be subject to any appeal and (3) any exhibitor wilfully attempting to deceive the society by a wrong entry will forfeit his entrance fees as well as all prizes won by him at this show, even prizes won by horses ¡ correctly entered by him, and will not be allowed to exhibit at any future show of the society.—Major J. V. Colby's proposal to hold the show in future years a week before the Dublin Show was carried as was also a vote of thanks to the chairman, which concluded the meeting.
