How to Submit a Proposed Change and New Rules/Wording

The mission of Horse Management is to encourage safe environments; promote individual knowledge; teach the principles of safe, sensible and responsible horse care; and enable regional and local leaders to assess their HM instructional programs. Maintaining the integrity of the rules that govern Horse Management at rallies is an important part of this mission.

When making your proposal remember that a well-researched and carefully prepared proposal (with objective & specific examples) will have a better chance of being approved and will have a more meaningful impact on the fairness of competition and the welfare of the horse.

Please note Rules may not be added, modified or deleted that change stated USEF, USPC, or Code of Conduct policies or permit illegal activities. A member of the Horse Management Committee may contact you regarding your proposal and you may be asked to consider certain amendments. The Horse Management has the authority to amend or decline any proposed rule change.

How to write a proposed rule or rule change:

1. State what the problem is. How would adding, deleting or changing a rule solve this problem?

2. Determine the scope of the problem. Is this a club, region or national problem? Just certain rallies? Just Championships?

3. Develop as many possible solutions as you can. Ask others for their input.

4. Choose one possible solution that appears to be the most appropriate and that fits the stated mission and goals of USPC. The solution to the problem may be something that can be accomplished without a rule change. A rule change is not always the best solution.
