The Novice Classes are a great way to introduce a person who is wanting to get a taste of how a WCB event goes and see
that this is a doable thing. We set you up with a WCB team member (past or present) or any other salty WCB competitor
or choose one of your own – they just have to be a WCB member. “Novice” means you are new in the competition field
and do not serve in an instructional role. You cannot be a CJF or have competed in the novice class in previous seasons.
There is a very low entry fee – $162. ($150.00 + NM tax), making this one of the most inexpensive and educational one
hour hands on clinics you will ever compete in! And you win cool prizes! The shoes are usually pretty basic and straight
forward, they are designed to make you interact with a striker though. The winner of the class will get a paid entry to the
next WCB competition and a buckle. The entry fee for the novice class is $162. (non-refundable) and you need to register
by the entry deadline.

Both Novice Classes are 1 hour long. The fronts are made from 13 ½” x 3/8” x 1” and the hinds are made from 13” x 3/8” x 1”. E5 Nail. Bob punched toe clip. Novice competitors are allowed a striker.


Novice competitors will compete in their own Mach Play Double Elimination tournament. The process will be same as the Category Match Play. Novice competitors will receive 1 point for each win, which will go towards their overall total.
Blurton Barshoe Novice Match Play will consist of altering a Jim Blurton Product to meet the qualifications and fit of the selected foot. You will have 12 minutes to start and the time will get shorter!.


  • 2 Person
    3/8” x 1” plain stamp
    Appropriate nail
    10 minutes to start.  The time will decrease as we go along.

Match Play is worth 2 points per win in the top part of the bracket and 1 point per win in the bottom and areas of the bracket shaded in gray.

Novices are not eligible for the Categories Match Play.

You will get a 10 second look at a foot, you can measure with a ruler but no calipers may be used. This is a head to head, double elimination tournament.

1) You and your opponent’s shoes will be numbered with your competitor number and taken to the judges table.
2) In order for your shoe to be judged on the specimen foot your shoe must meet all the specifications listed below. If your opponents shoe makes the criteria and your shoe does not, your opponents shoe automatically wins without being judged on the foot (and vice versa).

  • Do the nails go in the holes?
  • Is the nail placement not detrimental to the hoof capsule?
  • Is the shoe reasonably flat with no sole pressure?
  • Does the shoe have the requirements that the judges have set?

3) If both competitor’s shoes make criteria then the fit on the foot is the ultimate decider.
4) If neither of the competitor’s shoes make criteria, then the judge will make a decision based on forging without the foot present.
5) Please don’t harass or attempt to persuade the judge one way or another. Doing so will result in disqualification.
