Initial Posting: 01Jun13

Current Wording – Appendix E.Quick Reference

People on Vehicle/ADS Advanced and USEF Advanced:

Single: Groom required

Suggested Wording – Appendix E.Quick Reference

Under ADS Advanced

Small column at the bottom under four headings: T,P,I,AA:

Groom optional for all single turnouts at all times except for equines 120cm or taller competing in Competition B. (See 914.2.2)

Under USEF Advanced


Reason for change

To clarify that VSE singles do not require grooms/navigators at any ADS level, including ADS Advanced – for welfare of the horse. This does not apply at USEF Advanced, for they don’t have a division for VSEs.
