    Default Green Pony Height Restrictions

    Can a junior show a green pony and in classes exceeding 3'6" at a AA show in Zone 10? Thank you.

    Green pony riders in any zone need to be under 18.

    They can show in classes that exceed 3'6" in Childrens Jumpers, Pony Jumpers, Junior Hunter Classics and USHJA Hunter Derby classes.

    Because Green Pony Hunters is not a Zone division USEF rules apply.
    But there CAN be cross entry restrictions at the Childrens Hunter ( Horse or Pony division) level.

    3. Ponies who have not broken their Green Status must jump less than their regulation height in open classes or their Green Status will be broken.

    A junior can show a Green Pony over 3'6" but as per rule HU 104 #3 that pony would lose it's green status.

    I don't think they mean that they're going to show the green pony higher than 3'6". I think they mean that the rider is/wants to show a green pony and show another mount in classes higher than 3'6".

    And if the pony is showing the green pony hunters already, then it's green status is already "broken" so it wouldn't matter if the pony showed higher than their regulation height.

    From HU110.10: "10. Junior riders showing ponies cannot compete in any class where fences may be set higher than 3’6” at the same competition (Exception Children’s Jumpers, Green Pony Hunters, USHJA International Hunter Derby, Junior Hunter Classics, and Pony Jumpers)"

    Link to HU part of rulebook:http://www.usef.org/documents/ruleBook/2012/16-HU.pdf

    Which is interesting--I knew about the cross entry restriction WRT ponies and hunter/jumper classes, but this would also keep a junior from showing a pony and doing the USET (AKA Talent Search, or whatever they call it now)
