INFORMATION

 

UPDATES TO OWNER RIDER CLASSES:

Owner Rider/Home Produced

The aim of these classes is to provide events for competitors who own and care for their own horse/s on a daily basis and produce their horse/s for showing without the external assistance of a “professional” stable or business or individual.  Education is encouraged but assistance in caring and producing the horse/s for showing by individuals associated with a professional stable or business is not in keeping with the intention of these classes.

  • Horses must be owned & registered with EA in the name of the rider or the rider’s immediate family (wife, husband, mother, father, brother, sister within the State of residence).   Horses must be ridden by the registered owner or registered member of their immediate family.
  • Horses must be registered in the state in which it is competing, and in the care of, and being produced for showing, solely by the owner/rider (or immediate family) at least 6 months prior to close of entries.
  • If the horse is stabled or agisted in a professional stable the horse may be cared for but not ridden by a professional or any employee, or close contact of a profession stable/business in the six months prior to close of entry.
