USA Equestrian Announces Dressage Rule Change Proposal Allowing Option Of Double Bridle At Third Level

Corresponding with the release of the new 2003 USA Equestrian Dressage Tests for Training through Fourth Levels, the USA Equestrian Dressage Committee is
recommending rule changes allowing the use of a double bridle as option at Third Level. The Dressage Committee anticipates that these rule changes will be approved by the USA Equestrian Executive Committee at their next scheduled meeting on December 3, effective immediately. Beginning December 4, riders competing at Third Level would have the option of using a double bridle.

Please note that according to Article 301.7.2 of the Federation Rule Book, any competition, which begins before December 1, is governed by the rules in effect December 1st of the previous year. Therefore, competitions that are run on the dates of November 30-December 1, 2002 are governed by 2002 rules, including the use of the 1999 AHSA Dressage Tests.

USA Equestrian Inc., 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 Federation has over 80,000 members and recognizes more than 2,800 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.
The vision of USA Equestrian is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America, promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grass roots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its horses, and embracing this vision, to be the best national equestrian federation in the world.
