Definition

Predicates are a system used in the horse world to judge the quality of stallions and mares, and determine their eligibility for registries. These qualities include their conformation, their performance in their sport discipline, and the qualities they pass down to their offspring. A predicate system based mostly off the predicates that are earned by Friesians and Dutch Warmbloods in The Netherlands is used in Horse Reality, with some of the predicate categories pending implementation.

Types of predicates

There are 6 different types of predicates to be earned:

  1. Star
  2. Proven
  3. Sport (not integrated yet)
  4. Performance (not integrated yet)
  5. Clinical approved
  6. Approved stud (not integrated yet)

Requirements

StarPredicate

Star predicate

The horse or foal needs to have earned three 1st premiums or 2 first premiums and a day champion award at conformation shows.

Once horses have earned this predicate, it appears in the game as the word "Star" in the Predicate line on the horse's main profile.

Proven predicate

In order to earn a proven predicate the horse needs to be at least 3 years old. The requirements are different based on the sex of the horse. Stallions can produce offspring more easily than a mare, which would give them an advantage if it would be the same.

Mare:

  • At least 8 descendants with star predicates
  • Or at least 1 approved stud in her offspring
  • Entered into a conformation show after achieving one of the above.

Stallion:

  • At least 20 descendants with star predicates
  • Or at least 3 approved studs in his offspring
  • Entered into a conformation show after achieving one of the above.

Once horses have earned this predicate, it appears in the game as the word "Proven" in the Predicate line on the horse's main profile.

Clinical approved predicate

The Clinical approved predicate is for stallions only in order to become an approved stud (not integrated yet), he needs to have this predicate. To earn this predicate the stallion needs to have good health and good quality sperm, which means that his health stats should be 75+ points.

You can only check this by getting the stallion a Clinical Check at the veterinarian, which becomes available at the age of 7 years or older. The check may only be done once, as the stallion's health stats do not change over time and are not affected by anything the player does (such as care, exercise, vaccination, hoof trimming, etc).

Once horses have earned this predicate, it appears in the game as the word "Clinical Approved" in the Predicate line on the horse's main profile.

Sport

This predicate is not yet implemented in the game, and cannot be earned. The Royal Dutch Sport Horse society defines this as: "A jumper must be M-jumping (1.20m) or M-eventing (cross 1.00m, Jumping Course 1.05m) and have five winning points. Dressage mares must be Z1-dressage with one winning point or M-eventing with five winning points." Based on this information, a sport predicate horse would be expected to not only perform well in the discipline, but also have reached a high level in their discipline.

Performance

This predicate is not yet implemented in the game, and cannot be earned. The Royal Dutch Sport Horse society indicates this may be earned by the horse achieving a high score in a performance test.

Approved stud

This predicate is not yet implemented in the game, and cannot yet be earned.
