DOGS: As much as we love dogs, we would prefer you leave them at home. If however you must bring them along, the USEF rule GR1301.6 will be STRICHTLY ENFORCED. There will be a $75 fine for any dog not on a leash at any time during the weekend and the owner may be asked to leave the grounds. Due to an unfortunate incident we must enforce this policy… and besides, it IS the rule at a recognized USEF competition!
GR 1301.6. Dogs are not permitted to be loose on competition grounds and must be on a leash or otherwise contained. Individuals must not lead dogs on a leash while mounted. Dog owners are solely responsible for any damages, claims, losses or actions resulting from their dogs’ behaviors. Dog owners failing to comply with this rule may be subject to penalty under Chapters 6 and 7, as well as issuance of warning cards.
