    Default How To File A Complaint Against A Horse Show Management?

    Is there a way to file a complaint with USEF regarding a horse show management after the show is over? It was only this past weekend, not months ago if that makes a difference.

    Heck yes.
    I know you can fill out competition evaluations. If it was a "show-wide" problem, get your fellow competitors to fill them out also.

    You can fill out a competition evaluation form within 30 days after the show has ended -- BTW, if your issue is with footing or competition officials, there are specific evaluation forms for those --

    Do you want to file a negative evaluation? Or do you want to protest that rules were violated?

    If the latter
    GR603 Protests.
    1. Any rider, driver, handler, vaulter, longeur, exhibitor, owner, agent, trainer or the parent
    of a junior exhibitor, or any Life, Senior, or Junior member present at the competition may
    file a protest
    with the Show Committee of a Licensed Competition or The Federation
    Hearing Committee alleging violation of any Federation rule(s)
    . The protest must contain all
    information as specified in GR602.1 and must be:
    a. in writing,
    b. signed by the protester,
    c. addressed to the Show Committee of the competition at which the alleged violation
    occurred, or to the Hearing Committee,
    d. accompanied by a deposit of $200 if made by a Federation member or the parent of
    a junior exhibitor member or $300 if made by a non-member (if check, payable to the
    competition or to the Federation); said deposit will be refunded in the event the protest
    is upheld, and
    e. received by the steward, technical delegate, a member of the Show Committee, the
    competition manager or the competition secretary within 48 hours of the alleged
    violation. If made directly to the Hearing Committee, the protest must be received at the
    Federation office by the tenth business day following the last recognized day of the
    or by the tenth business day following the date on which the alleged
    violation occurred if it occurred other than at a Licensed Competition.
