    If it is to be moved, organizers and competitors need to be able to find the definition.

    The obvious place for definitions of terms is Article 2. The definition should move there, not to Article 32.

    Article 32 can still include marathon vehicle classes as a type.

    Our pleasure show isn’t recognized but we do allow marathon vehicles. For most of our members, that is what they have.

    I already have a problem with this current rule. I think making a marathon style vehicle an “option” for inclusion in Pleasure Driving competitions should be entirely eliminated. With the ability to determine divisions amongst the vehicles and equines already in place, excluding an entire category of vehicles is inappropriate….and can be handled through “divisions”….no exclusion.
    Some marathon type vehicles have “dress up” packages…they would be excluded according to this definition. There are other pipe styled vehicles that are not considered traditional marathon vehicles, but are consistent with the construction of marathon vehicles….where do they fit into the divisions, or are they to be allowed for exclusion, as well?
    Definitions are always appropriate in the appropriate places….which is what this rule change proposal is all about, actually.
