11.	Conflict of Interest: Within the equestrian community there may be times when conflicts occur. For guidance, it has been determined that a perceived/potential conflict of interest could arise in the event that an appointed judge has a previous or current connection to a horse entered in the competition. Examples of such connections and interests include, but not limited to, the following. The judge has; bred or previously owned the horse or acted as an agent in its sale; previously competed, trained or kept the horse at livery; previously or currently had a financial or other interest in the horse. In the event that a judge/owner/rider (or their agent) knows of, or should know of, any potential and/or perceived conflict of interest in a horse entered in the competition they must declare this to the Organiser as soon as it is known. Steps will be taken to manage it as practically as possible. Any potential conflicts will be written and displayed next to the scoreboard. Conflicts at the Final will be avoided and managed by Burghley Horse Trials. 
12.	It is a condition of entry that all riders, owners, grooms, and their connections/relatives, must conduct themselves and communicate in a respectful manner towards the public, officials, and all other parties present or entered in the competition. Such behaviour includes respect for the Judges and their decisions, which are final.  Offensive behaviour, and/or other violations of this condition, may lead to sanctions such as disqualification and future bans.

Save for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Organisers or anyone for whom they are in law responsible, neither the Organisers, Burgham Horse Trials Ltd., British Eventing, FEI, employee or representative of these bodies accepts any liability for any accident, loss, damage, injury, illness to horses, owners, riders, grooms, spectators, dogs, exhibitors, land, cars, their contents and accessories, or any other person or property whatsoever, whether caused by their negligence, breach of contract or in any other way whatsoever.

Note: fence height at Final 1.00m (4 years) and 1.10m (5 years).
(10 marks)	Gallop: immediately after the jumping the 5 year old horses will be required to gallop. The 4 year olds will only be required to lengthen the canter indicating they could learn to gallop with further development and maturity.   

(20 Marks)	Conformation (12 marks) and Quality (8 marks) 

	Note: in the event of equality of marks after all four sections, the jumping mark will take precedence.  Should this still produce equality of marks, the highest mark attained in the gallop section followed by the dressage section will be the deciding factor.
