Click HERE to download and print the Rulebook that has been approved and will be in affect for the 2022/2023 show season.
The RIHA board has voted to allow any out-of-state horse show within 12 miles of the Rhode Island Board to run RI Medal Classes at their horse show! Please see the Rules page for additional information.
Division not listed in rulebook: RI Training Hunter: Open to all horses or ponies. No age limitations and no rider restrictions. No restriction of horse/pony/rider into other divisions if otherwise eligible. To be judged on performance, soundness, suitability and manners. Simple lead changes and/or trotting in corners are permitted. To be shown over a hunter type course. Combinations are optional. Fence height not less than 18" and not to exceed 2'6". The same horse/rider combination may not compete in more than one fence height section at the same show. RIHA points will accrue at all heights for one combined year end award.
Continuing for 2022: Claymaker Memorial Thoroughbred Versatility Award To be awarded to the Jockey Club registered Thoroughbred with the most overall points throughout the season in all classes/divisions except Equitation. The goal of this award is to recognize the most versatile Thoroughbred who can do everything from Pleasure to Jumpers. It might be a lesson horse who earns points in multiple divisions even if not Champion in any, as the goal is to highlight the overall athlete and teacher that the Thoroughbred can be. As an example, a horse may have 500 points and be Champion of the TB Hunter division with no points elsewhere, while another horse may have 600 points in a multiple number of divisions, but have only a few Reserves or Thirds. The second horse would receive the award. It is not about being a superstar in one area - but about being talented in many areas.To sign your horse up for the award, please email Robin Muksian Grimm at email@example.com, by January 31st 2022, and provide your horse's current show name and his/her registered Jockey Club name. Any horses sent to Robin after that will have points accrue from the date she receives an email forward only. This trophy will be awarded annually. 2021 points can be found on the RI Points Page.
