SHOW Rule Book Clarification



The following clarification will be added to the SHOW Rule book. This clarification will be made to the Flat Shod Section & Standards. The SHOW board is still receiving comments to the proposed rules changes and recommendations.

The following wording is added:

A loose or relaxed rein is a rein with motion. A tight rein is a rein held with no slack and held tautly with no motion in the rein drawing the corners of the horse's mouth back.

The original article regarding this matter was published in the February 22, 2016 issue of The Walking Horse Report. The rule changes were recommended by the Judges' Committee.
