or other adult will have to sign for the junior. That person must be a USEF member or pay the $30 USEF non-member fee. The coach is the
person being paid for lessons at the show and is responsible for the rider. That person also must be a USEF member or pay the USEF non-
member fees. An unpaid friend helping the rider does not have to sign as coach.

“NO SHOWS”: Competitions may reserve the right to fill a competitor’s subsequent ride times if that competitor fails to notify the competition
of his/her intention to scratch (i.e., is a “no show”). (DR126.3)
LONGER WHIPS: A USEF rule change now allows that one whip no longer than 47.2 inches (120 cm), including lash may be carried in all
classes, including most qualifying classes, except in USEF/USDF and or FEI championships. See DR120.5 for more complete details.
WARNING: Our riders need to be quicker getting into the arena. The next rider should be entering the arena when the preceding rider is sa-
luting to leave so that the new rider has enough time to go completely around the competition arena before the bell/whistle sounds. Right now
our riders are getting into the arena late and they are insisting on getting their ride around the competition arena after the bell rings. There is
no rule granting the rider time to ride around the arena. If you do not enter at “A” within 45 seconds of the bell or whistle sounding,
you will be eliminated. If you wish to ride around the perimeter of the arena, be sure you start going around the arena as soon as the
preceding rider has saluted to leave, so add a minute in front of your ride time for this purpose. Be forewarned: If the show is run-
ning late, you will not have time to pass the judge.
COMPETITOR NAME CHANGE: If a competitor has changed his/her name but the horse recording is still listed under the previous name, the
exhibitor must notify USEF and USDF of the name change by fax, e-mail or letter. After USEF and USDF have made the name change, the
exhibitor can print an on-line card with the correct name on the membership card and the on-line horse card. See USEF GR1105-1108.
JR./YR INFORMATION: To qualify for the Great American/USDF Regional Championships, eligible Young Riders must ride the 2009 FEI
Young Rider Team Test to qualify for the FEI Young Rider division, and the 2009 FEI Young Rider Freestyle to qualify for the Fourth level Free-

use either the 2009 FEI Pony Individual Test or the FEI Pony Team Test to qualify for the Second Level Junior/Young Rider Championship

submitted with the entry for a freestyle class. Freestyle tapes must be given to the show office at least two hours before the scheduled ride
TESTS: The FEI tests have been changed for 2009. They may be found on the FEI website: www.fei.org or in the back of the current USDF
Directory where all tests are published. This show will use the 2007 USEF tests (see USEF website: www.usef.org), the 2007 USDF
Introductory Tests A and B and the 2007 USDF Freestyle tests.
DOGS MUST BE LEASHED ON A LINE NO LONGER THAN SIX FEET.
WE DO NOT ALLOW BICYCLES ANYMORE BECAUSE OF PAST INJURIES CAUSED BY BICYCLES TO RIDERS ON HORSEBACK.
MOTORIZED VEHICLES: Minors who do not have a valid driver’s license, which allows them to operate a motorized vehicle in the state in
which they reside, will not be permitted to operate a motorized vehicle of any kind including, but not limited to, golf carts, motorcycles, scooters
or farm utility vehicles on the competition grounds of licensed competitions. Minors who have a valid temporary license may operate the above
described motorized vehicles as long as they are accompanied by an adult with a valid driver’s license. Violations of this rule will be cause for
sanctions against the parent(s), guardian(s) and/or trainer(s) who are responsible for the child committing the offense. Penalties may include
exclusion of the child, parent(s), guardian(s), and/or trainer(s) from the competition grounds for the remainder of the competition and charges
being filed against any of the above individuals in accordance with Rule 6. Wheelchairs and other mobility assistance devices for individuals
with disabilities are exempt from this rule. GR1301.7
NO LOOSE DOGS: Dogs are not permitted to be loose on competition grounds and must be on a leash or otherwise contained. Individuals
must not lead dogs on a leash while mounted. Dog owners failing to comply with this rule may be subject to penalty under Chapters 6 and 7, as
well as issuance of warning cards. GR1301.6
RIDING TIMES: The show will confirm receipt of entries and announce riding times and stall numbers on The Good Horseman Foundation’s
web site: www.goodhorseman.org. Check our web site’s Ride Times page before the closing date to see if we have received your entries. If
you do not have an internet computer, you may get on-line at Kinko’s or the Public Library’s computers, or you may be able to consult a friend.
Riding times will appear on the web site also, usually the weekend before the show, but no later than the Tuesday before the show. Please
check your times and let the show manager know if you see any difficulties.
ARENAS: The show will use the Walker Covered Arena and other surrounding arenas. The standard 20X60 arena will be used except in
USDF and some Training Level classes where the 20x40 arena may be used if necessary. The arena size, if it is short, will be declared on the
Ride Times page of our website when the times are posted. All arenas have sand footing. Riding within the sides of the dressage competition
is allowed in the Walker Covered Arena on Friday only, but at no other time. The outdoor arenas are closed except for competition to protect
them in case of rain. Riders may ride round the outside of them, however.
WARM-UP AREAS: The show will use the large PVC-fenced outside the Walker Covered Arena as the warm-up ring. It is divided by tempo-
rary fencing into three separate fenced warm-up areas, each being approximately 80x140 feet. No one on foot is allowed in the warm-up
areas—coaching must be done from the side. Cones or other objects are not allowed in the warm-up rings.
