The first change involves Green Rider Hunters. The 1st season rule will no longer apply and instead this division will have similar restrictions as Short/Long Stirrup. Riders who have competed at 2’9 or over are allowed to compete in the Hunter portions of Green Rider BUT NOT THE EQUITATION and/or GSDHJA MEDAL portion of the division.
