    With regards to acquiring a USEF registration number:
    Perhaps the USEF should add some small boxes to check before a signature is written on the form:
    1. Was this horse recently purchased?
    ...

    Yes, My kids lesson with a trainer that only does the bigger 'A' shows...which is not in our budget. I trailer them to about 1 local show a month, of our choice and they meet with a different trainer...

    Thank you FrenchFry for inquiring to the USEF about this matter. I am not a member of this organization, as my kids do the local shows. However, I feel as you do- that something is just not right....

    I think most of us are just waiting for an answer from the USEF. This is not something that should just be brushed under the rug. The breaking of rules affects everyone.

    I'm just mystified about all the events that have happened. It makes me glad that my kids can only do the local stuff. Seems like some people just do what they want, that rules don't apply to them....

    Only local schooling shows for my kids....The fees have killed any dream of ever going to an "A" show.

    I was wondering if anyone that was actually at pony finals when this occurred...was able to "get a feeling" of how this incident was perceived by the other kid riders? Were most of the kids upset...

    This may be a dumb question...I'm not sure how this works at pony finals... But with all the ponies MD rode at the show, couldn't she have picked another pony to ride for the medal class? Or do you...

    As I stated before-We can only afford our local shows. We saved and treated our 8 yr old to an "A" show this year. (The one and only "A" show for a long, long while). My 8 yr old had to join the...

    I have 2 kids that ride mostly in the local shows, as thats what we can afford. We saved up enough money a few months ago for my 8 yr old to go to a rated show and do the short stirrup. I had to join...

    I guess "Sport of Kings" is a reference to horse racing...but I think it now applies to all horse sports. It seems that back in the 80's the middle class could still manage to stay in this sport....

    I just dropped off a brand new pair of tall boots with zippers to be taken in about one inch. I had to really call around, the first cobbler took one look and said it couldn't be done on his machine....
