The 2017 competition year is fast approaching, and with it comes new rules going into effect that are designed to enhance the Young and Green horse pipeline in the Hunter ring.
These rules change the Green Hunter nomenclature of Pre-Green, First Year and Second Year Green Hunter to a simpler, more descriptive naming structure: Green Hunter 3'0", 3'3", 3'6" and 3'9". Each section will be A-rated by the USEF. Similarly, the Green Conformation Hunter will now be Green Conformation 3'6", and the Regular Conformation Hunter will be the High Performance Conformation Hunter.
At the same time, these changes add Young Hunter sections offered at 3'0", 3'3" and 3'6". In order to compete in these sections, horses will have to have their age verified with USEF.
To make sure you're up to date on these changes before you or your clients begin showing in the new competition year,
