~~~~~~~~~~~ 2017 RULE BOOK ~~~~~~~~~~~

RULE BOOK WAS LAST UPDATED JULY 12, 2017!!!!!   

**Please Note: Revised rules applying to the Jumper Ring Effective May 13, 2017**

1. In the jumpers, a horse may not compete in more than 5 classes per show.

2. Excessive speed that the judge feels is dangerous will be grounds for elimination after one warning. To clarify: galloping is perfectly fine in the jumper ring with well executed, properly balanced turning – but flat out running with horses slipping and stumbling through turns is unacceptable.
