The American Horse Shows Association (AHSA) today issued the following reminder regarding deadlines for rule changes according to Article 342 of the AHSA rules. Standard or normal rule change proposals submitted by the general membership of the AHSA must be received by June 1, 2001. Article 342 reads, in part, as follows:

All proposals for rule changes from the general membership must be submitted to the office of the AHSA in writing on the official form for proposed rule changes provided by the AHSA (the "official form") by June 1, 2001 for forwarding to the Rules Reference Committee. Rule changes from individuals must be submitted by a proponent named on the proposal regardless of any committee positions held.

Rule Change Proposal forms are available at, including a new on-line form. Additionally, an instructional brochure for the preparation of proposals is now located at the same web site address. Alternatively, members may contact Marie Murphy (859) 225-6922 for a printed copy of the Rule Change Proposal form.

Standard rule change proposals must be received from AHSA staff and AHSA committees and councils by September 15, 2001, the latter accompanied by minutes or certification with appropriate signatures.

There are 64 standard rule change proposals going forward for consideration thus far in 2001. Those, and all subsequent proposals, will be posted shortly on the AHSA web site.

The American Horse Shows Association, as the National Equestrian Federation of the U.S., is the regulatory body for the Olympic and World Championship sports of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, reining, show jumping, and vaulting, as well as 19 other breeds and disciplines of equestrian competition. As the country's largest multi-breed organization, the AHSA has over 70,000 members and recognizes more than 2,600 competitions nationwide each year. It governs all aspects of competition, including educating and licensing all judges, stewards, and technical delegates who officiate at these shows.
