Eventing SA Rules – 2018

SA RULES FOR EVENTING as at 1 January 2018

The South African Eventing Rules have been extensively updated. All Eventers must familiarise themselves with them. Remember that the onus is on competitors to know the Rules.

Changes to the 2013 Rules have now included rules that used to be in the General Regulations. The Welfare of the Horse, disciplinary and appeal procedures have been extensively rewritten. All Rule changes introduced since 2013 and included in the  2015 addendum are now part of the these rules. Other changes have been approved by Council. The Rules now include levels at 60cm and 70cm. Of note is the removal the 1.5 factor in dressage scoring,  and going too fast in the cross country will be penalised.
