Current Wording – Article CD937.1.1 (partial)

At ADS-recognized events, drivers may use a two- or four-wheeled vehicle for single horse/pony/VSE classes. For divisions other than ADS Advanced, a groom is optional for single horse and pony drivers in Dressage and Cones Competitions only and also in Marathon for all single equine turnouts less than 120 cm.
