    Default Am I considered an Amateur now?

    I'm renewing my USEA membership, and I'm trying to figure out if I should check the "Amateur Status Eligibility with the USEA" box. I turn 19 in July so I know I am no longer a Junior, and I don't make any kind of living or money through horses. I can't find a hard copy of the rule book, and I'm having a hard time finding the GR 306, 307, and 308 rules that apparently apply to this.

    Also, sorry if this is a stupid question, but if I declare myself as an Amatuer can I no longer compete in Junior/Young Rider divisions (Ex. JYOT or JYOP)?

    Thanks!

    ETA: Am I correct in thinking YR divisions are 21 and under?

    You are correct that YR is 21 and under. It does not matter whether you are amateur or professional- just your age.
