SCHJA Rule Changes For 2014 - Effective December 1, 2013
Points Awarded at USEF A/AA Shows
SCHJA will be using separate point charts for A and AA rated shows based on the USEF Point Chart. The SCHJA does not use the USEF increment system.
Pony Working Hunter
All ponies must be ridden by a junior exhibitor in pony working hunter, pony equitation, green pony working hunter classes. Adult exhibitors may ride ponies in classes that they are eligible to compete in and may do so at the same show that a junior exhibitor shows the pony in Pony Working Hunter, Pony Equitation, Green Pony Working Hunter. Stallions are barred from showing. Ponies must hold a current USEF or SCHJA or NCHJA measurement card or be measured prior to showing. Ponies are to be judged on performance, manners, way of going, and soundness. Extreme speed shall be penalized.
SCHJA Rule Changes For 2014 - Effective June 1, 2014
Pony Measurement Card Rule
At Palmetto rated horse shows, owners of ponies must possess a measurement card, a copy of a measurement card, or a valid measurement form issued by USEF, SCHJA, or NCHJA to show in pony restricted classes. SCHJA members without valid documentation may have their ponies measured at a Palmetto rated horse show and receive a SCHJA measurement card at no charge. Non-members may have their ponies measured for that day for a $5.00 fee.
If the measurement is disputed by the owner of the pony they have 30 days to have the pony re-measured by a different SCHJA, NCHJA and or USEF Steward.
Palmetto State Show Stewards & Measuring Clinic
All SCHJA Stewards or potential stewards to officiate at Palmetto rated horse shows must have completed a SCHJA Pony/Horse measuring clinic as of June 1 2014. Exception made for USEF or NCHJA Stewards. Also the steward has to have an USEF approved measuring stick available at the horse show.
