USEF Rule Changes
Beginning in 2019, USEF changed the process for submitting rule change proposals and feedback. USDF will be actively seeking member feedback on rule change proposals already in the USEF “system” as well as rule change proposals that are in “draft” form, allowing members the opportunity to provide feedback at the very early stages of the process.
As part of our ongoing effort to educate members, USDF is dedicated to making this rule change page a resource for information on new rules, the rule change proposal process, approval process, and other helpful information regarding rules affecting dressage.
You can view rule changes that are approved by the US Equestrian Board of Directors during their meetings. Click here for a summary of approved rule changes that are DR specific. The complete USEF Rulebook can be found here.
There are a number of rule change proposals that are in “draft” form and still in the discussion phase. These were discussed during the USEF/USDF Open Forum at the USDF Annual Convention. Click here for a complete list of rule change proposals that are in "draft" form. You may provide feedback directly to USDF on these here.
In addition, the attached “draft” rule change proposals were presented to the USDF Executive Board for consideration. You may provide feedback on these “draft” rule change proposals, before they are submitted to USEF. Click here to provide your feedback.
Below are active rule change proposals already in the USEF system. Feedback may be provided to USDF by clicking “Feedback” on each specific rule change.
The complete list of all approved and current active proposed USEF rules changes can be viewed on the USEF website through the link below. Questions regarding USEF rules can be directed here.
