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. The complete USEF Rulebook can be found here.

You can view rule changes that are in their draft form here.

Below are active Extraordinary rule changes and Clarifications that will be going forward to the USEF Board of Directors in November. Feedback may be provided to USDF by clicking “Feedback” on each specific rule change.

The deadline to submit feedback for these rule change proposals is November 6, 2020.
