ASHA Changes to Competition Recording and WCHS Qualifying



Effective July 1, 2018: In order to comply with the Memorandum of Understanding between the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA), competitions that wish to have their results recorded must recognize and reciprocate all USEF Hearing Committee decisions regarding the suspension, or other disciplinary action taken against any USEF or Recognized Affiliate member and reciprocate all penalties issued by the U.S. Center for Safe Sport. These restrictions will also apply to persons and entities affiliated with suspended individuals as outlined in the USEF Rulebook GR704. The ASHA’s Competition Recording Form will be revised immediately to reflect these requirements and the ASHA will be reaching out to the management of competitions taking place after July 1, 2018 to confirm compliance with the terms of the MOU. Starting July 1, 2018 the World’s Championship Horse Show will take over the qualifying recording process from the ASHA for the 2019 horse show cycle. Qualifying and points recorded before July 1, 2018, which are used for the 2018 show, will not be affected.
