2016 Rule Changes -

Recognizing the changing dynamics of the equestrian event scene and the availability of appropriate venues, an emergency rule change was voted on at the Annual Banquet of Champions on November 28, 2015. The change is on Page C1 of the NHHTA Rule Book.  Affiliated events would no longer have to be held within New Hampshire. 
Under #2, Affiliation Procedure and Fees, second paragraph will now read:
All affiliated events must be sponsored by a NH riding club, fair association or any other organization approved by the NHHTA Rules Committee.
Page D1 – add rider, handler, driver to list of those eligible for awards.  To read:  “ To be eligible for NHH&TA Annual Awards, the owner or lessee in addition to the rider, handler and driver must be a member in good standing of NHH&TA…”
