USEF Morgan Rules & Forums

AMHA will again be hosting USEF Rule Change Forums at all the 2022 Regional Horse Shows.  There are some very intriguing proposals being presented to the membership this year.  Please take the time to participate in the Regional Rule Forums at any regional show you’re attending.   

Some of the proposals include allowing the use of supplemental hair, allowing any type of pad in Classic Pleasure (leaving the length requirement as is), allowing all Western horses to show in a snaffle bit, and clarifications to several class specifications.  Be sure to attend and have your voice heard and recorded. 

Whether these rule changes will be officially submitted and move forward in the USEF process (with possible effective dates of 12/1/2023) will depend on the input received from the AMHA membership base.

We look forward to seeing you at the rule forums and recording your thoughts on these proposals. Thank you in advance for participating in this important endeavor.
