RC#: 19-048
Status: Posted 15 Jun18, Recommended by PDC 19July18

Name: Jeff Morse for PDC
ADS #: 4667
Subject: Organizers May Tailor Events
Rule #: PD-202
Current Wording: 202 Name of Class

If show management wishes to offer a class described in the ADS Rulebook, the class must be conducted as stated. If management wishes to alter a class to fit “house rules” they must change the name of the class to avoid confusing it with ADS Rulebook class specifications. Such classes should be clearly explained in the ADS Omnibus and must include the “house rules” and judging criteria. In any case these conditions should conform to the spirit and intent of the ADS general rules for safety, conduct and cruelty.

202.1 Organizers wishing to present both pleasure driving and combined driving at the same event may do so only if the disciplines are run as two separate competitions. Horses may not compete in both a Pleasure Driving Show and a Combined Driving Event conducted concurrently at the same venue.

202.2 Driven Dressage, Arena Driving and Two-Phase competitions may be presented concurrently with pleasure driving. Horses may compete in both competitions at management’s discretion

New Wording: Classes described in the ADS Rulebook must be conducted as stated. If the Organizer wishes to alter a class to fit “house rules”, the name of the class must be different than the name in the rulebook to avoid confusion with ADS Rulebook class specifications. Such classes should be clearly explained in the ADS Omnibus and must include the “house rules” and judging criteria. House Rule classes must be approved by the Technical Delegate. These conditions should conform to the spirit and intent of the ADS general rules for safety, conduct and cruelty.

202.1 Pleasure driving and combined driving competitions may be offered at the same event.

202.2 (DELETE)

Reason for Change: To provide organizers greater flexibility in tailoring their events to help grow the driving sport. 202.2 is deleted because it is not necessary to say what is *permitted*, only what is not allowed
