Quick question regarding green status. I read some time ago that if a horse/pony is inactive from showing, due to what ever reason, for a set length of time that said horse/pony is eligible to gain their green status back. Is that true and if so, how long is that set length of time?

A $25 processing fee, a list of competitions with dates where the horse competed at
3’6” or higher, the horse’s name and Federation recording number must accompany the
