60 day comment period for potential SHOW rulebook change



The SHOW Board of Directors has requested the following recommendation from the Rules Committee be put out for a sixty (60) day comment period. It would be a change in the “Changing Divisions” Rule.

Currently the rule is as follows:
(j) Changing Divisions.  There are three divisions, 1.) Flat shod, 2.) Park Performance and Show Pleasure, 3.) Performance.   Within a calendar year, a horse may change from one division to a new division one time and may not change back to the previous division, unless there is a bona-fide and recorded change of ownership.  Once competing in a division at a show, the horse must stay in the same division the entire show regardless of change of ownership. *Amateur Owned & Trained: A horse entered in a show in the Amateur Owned & Trained division cannot be shown at the same show by a professional in an open class unless the horse changed ownership during the show.

The Rules’ Committee is proposing the following:

(j) Changing Divisions.  There are three divisions, 1.) Flat shod, 2.) Park Performance and Show Pleasure, 3.) Performance.   Within a calendar year, a horse may change from one division to another division multiple times without penalty.”, Once competing in a division at a show, the horse must stay in the same division the entire show regardless of change of ownership. *Amateur Owned & Trained: A horse entered in a show in the Amateur Owned & Trained division cannot be shown at the same show by a professional in an open class unless the horse changed ownership during the show.

Anyone can comment curing the comment period which will end August 7, 2020. Comments may be sent by email to rreed@showhio.com or by US mail to SHOW – P.O. Box 167 – Shelbyville, TN  37162

If approved, this rule will go into effect January 1, 2021.
