The US Equestrian Federation has changed its Rules under Chapter 10 that moves the process for licensing officials into a separate Policies and Procedures document and transfers responsibility for drafting these policies and procedures to the Affiliates. Accordingly, the Licensed Officials committee is responsible for organizing and conducting the Licensed Officials Clinic and supporting activities to train and develop licensed officials. Members of this committee are appointed by the President of the Board and are accountable to the Board of Directors of the American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association (ASHBA). This is a standing committee.
Following are the primary responsibilities of the committee:
1. Develop training materials; conduct Licensed Officials Clinics.
2. Liaise with the Rules committee to ensure that all training materials reflect the most current rules.
3. Conduct interviews per the “Hackney, Roadster, Saddlebred and Saddle Seat Equitation Licensing Handbook” to support the application and maintenance for “r” and “R” candidates.
