Georgie Green, Chair of the USEF Morgan rules committee, announced today that based on feedback from the 2011 Rules Forum, the committee has withdrawn proposed rule changes MO106 and MO173 requiring protective headgear for all walk-trot riders. The committee felt further evaluation was needed.
“The committee wishes to thank all those that attended and participated in the 2011 Rules Forums,” she said. “We recognize this is a complex issue to warrants greater research. The committee strongly encourages walk-trot riders to wear protective headgear and emphasizes that protective headgear may be worn without penalty.”
