Hi, I have a quick question about IHSA eligibility for the Walk-trot-canter division. The rulebook says this:
But I know people who have shown in recognized shows before that are in Walk-trot-canter 2B. Does it mean that you just can't have shown higher than 3' at a recognized or unrecognized competition? Or does it mean that you can't have competed in any recognized shows at all at any height/in any class?
Walk-Trot-Canter riders eligible for class 2A are those who have had more than 24 weeks of instruction and who have not competed in a mounted competition that required them to jump more than eighteen inches. Once the Beginning Walk-Trot-Canter rider has accumulated 18 points, s/he must move to Walk-Trot-Canter Hunter Seat Equitation (2B). Walk Trot Canter riders eligible for class 2B are those who have not competed in any over fences class higher than three foot (3’) in any competition, nor have those 2B riders competed in any recognized competition.
