KY HIO Develops A Penalty Structure



At the South Central Kentucky banquet, Duane Rector announced that the Ky-HIO would not be signing a operating plan at this time and that the Ky-HIO oversight committee has developed a penalty structure which will be in use at all Ky-HIO affiliated horse shows in 2007. The 2007 penalty structure is as follows:

2007 KY-HIO PENALTY STRUCTURE


I.          Pressure Shoeing - Lifetime suspension for the trainer from showing.

II.         Bi-lateral Sensitivity - 8 months suspension for Trainer

III.       Uni-lateral Sensitivity- 2 weeks suspension

IV.       Scar Rule- Horse does not show (If a trainer is found to be in violation of the Scar Rule three times, any subsequent violation will result in a two-week suspension for each violation incurred.) Post-show scar rule violation will result in a 2 - week suspension.

V.        Technical Violation - May show if violation is corrected to the satisfaction of the Designated Qualified Person.  If violations are not corrected to the satisfaction of the Designated Qualified Person, the horse may not show.


The penalty structure will begin January 1 of each year and run through December 31 of the same year with all suspensions from previous year to be served in their entirety.  While serving a suspension, a person may not present a horse to the DQP, show, exhibit or be presented through the ring at a public auction.
