I have no problems with your "prep"- it seems quite reasonable. But I would not say it was "less than your average eventer".
For instance, I don't know ANY eventers who give their horse " Bute...
Not what I said.
The (Eventing) HORSE does not need a USEF number until you apply for an FEI passport.
The HORSE can compete at Prelim, Intermediate, and Advanced without a USEF number.
If you are giving bute within legal limits,you should NOT be submitting meds forms.
However, the fact that so many Eventers seem to be unaware of this indicates that "routine" use of bute is much...
Was this SJ or XC?
If SJ, the USEA SHow Jumping Resources document says a 1 stride should be 24-26 feet and a 2 stride shouuld be 34 to 36 feet.
See this USEA document
Many secretaries seem to be unaware of it.
The HORSE can run all the way through Advanced Eventing without a USEF HORSE number.
Only NEED a USEF HORSE number to get an FEI passport.
It is up to the course designer whether to number them 5A and 5B, or 5 and 6.
At BN, combinations (A and B) must satisfy this:
But there is no such requirement for "straightforward" at N and...
I just registered my2yo (lifetime USEF
I really don't think I need a notarized affidavit for a 2 yo.
I sent them copies of BOTH her ACPS and ISR registration papers, both of which include...
Competing over 3'6" in 2011 makes her not 2nd year Green in 2013.
Mokes no difference at all what height she competed in 2012.
But if you are talking about a hypothetical horse that...
Since every HT round here goes straight from SJ to XC, I have not worn a coat for SJ in YEARS.
And with all phases in one day, I rarely wear a coat for dressage. But if i do, it is a hunt coat.
I wear a bucking strap, and will sometimes use it (discreetly) during the test.
Perfectly legal, but if you are OBVIOUSLY using it a lot, I would expect it to affect the "use of aids" part of the...
There are plenty of secretaries who think Prelim and above horses need USEF numbers.
So I would not take the request form the secretary as the final word. Check with USEA and USEF.
I hate to break it to you, but-
Eventing horses DO NOT NEED USEF registration until they apply for an FEI passport.
There IS a "new" ID system, with "one lifetime number per horse".
It is in the rules.
But USEF has, apparently, been unable to make it effective. They have allowed so many "workarounds" that...
When you are not actually officiating, being a "licensed official" doesn't give you any more authorityto "pick up the phone and contact" someone than anybody else (you).
The most appropriate...
You are kidding, right?
When I sold Brain (Derby Day Dancer) the new owner promptly changed his USEA name to Beacon Point.
When my sister bought a nes horse, she promptly changed its name.
They are unlikely to cancel entirely. If the XC footing is too bad, they might turn it into a Combined Test. If they hold all phases, but you don't like the footing, they will almost certainly let...
They have FEI Stewards, not TDs.
WRT competing in the Green hunters - I again attribute it to ignorance and/or incompetence rather than malice.
Ignorance and incompetence are no excuse for breaking the rules, and I will be very...
WRT name changes .
I have heard (hearsay, but credible hearsay) that, if you want to change a horse's name with USEF, it can takes weeks, if not months, for the bureauocracyto complete the...
Thanks for the complement, but I am not THAT good.
I am an Eventing TD, so it is my job to know the Eventing rules, and especially how to look them up when I am not sure.
I am interested in...
Because it IS ineligible!
Deosn't matter if it was ignorance, laziness, or an actual intent to cheat. (And I am perfectly prepared to give the benefit of the doubt wrt to intent).
But it IS NOT...
FEI specs for a CCI* are 3'7" on Cross Country, and 3'9" in SHow Jumping. SO WELL above 3'6"
According to her US Eventing record, the horse first competed in the US in Jan 2012.
She started off with one Training, One Prelim, and one Intermediate.
Under USEF rules, a horse must have...
DEFINITELY not legal for 2nd Year green
I certainly hope COTH investigates this.
