Type descriptions

The type descriptions, as established in article 14 of the Studbook and Registration Regulations, at the general meeting on January 24, 2009 and April 18, 2009. Published March 11, 2020, the modified descriptions as these will be presented in the next GMM (October 2020)

All Tinkers presented for inspection are, since 2004, classified by type and assessed on "standing in type" prior to the assessment by the jury. This refers to how well the animal approaches the ideal type image.

Tinkers who are awarded 70 points or more for type have a chance of a star predicate if at least 210 points are obtained during the inspection. Tinkers who achieve a minimum of 75 points on type can be offered for promotion to a model statement.
