In the Canadian breed, you need to come to the CHARMD breed show in June and compete in specific classes in the show. The outcome of these classes determines who and what horses are on the Canadian Horse battle team. Before you can compete on the team, you have to come to the Masters (Battle of the Breeds) and do the breed demos for at least one year.
There are also horses that come to do the demos just to get acustom to the place and the goings on, but the horse needs to be fairly bomb proof before coming to do demos as we don't want any accidents or blow ups at the venue. This is a showcase of the breed. We, as owners and breeders, want and need the breed to be represented well as this is an international event.
