Each year the USEA opens up the opportunity for membership to weigh in on rule change proposals applicable to the sport of eventing and now is the time for our membership to weigh in on rule change proposals for the 2025 competition year.
The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) has made five rule changes which will go into effect October 1, 2023. Familiarize yourself with these rule changes below to make sure you are in compliance before heading out for your next event.
During the first USEF eventing competition held after the implementation of the rule, a significant number of the bits measured (commonly used bits) were out of compliance with this rule. Subsequently, we’ve been advised that the FEI will discuss the rule further and it is possible they will make amendments.
