Faq_logo_5Q. I am curious, do trainer’s have to be present at a show.  Say if a trainer can’t make it, but the child needs the points and shouldn’t miss a show can they still attend without their trainer?

A. There is no rule that says a trainer has to be present in order for a rider to compete in a show.  Most shows, on their  entry forms ask for signatures of the competitor or parent (if under 18), owner and trainer to be sure that these folks have read the ‘hold harmless’ agreement (small print) regarding the show’s liability.  But it isn’t necessary for at trainer to be present.
