The CHSA Board of Directors met on Tuesday, September 12, 2006, and It has come to our attention that some shows are running into the evening hours due to the popularity of some classes and divisions. Therefore, in consideration of the safety of our CHSA membership (horses and riders) the following rule regarding outdoor shows that extend into the evening hours is as follows:
As of September 15, 2006, CHSA requires that no later than one half hour past the official hour of sunset all performance classes must be concluded unless there is artificial lighting that assures full and complete visibility comparable to daylight clarity.
No show may hold classes for more than 12 hours unless proper lighting is available for show rings and schooling areas. This mean that horses may not be exhibited in the show ring or schooled in the designated warm-up areas unless lighting is provided that assures full and complete visibility comparable to daylight clarity.
Non-compliance will result in the following:
No CHSA recognition of any classes after 1/2 hour past sundown
A fine of $250.00
Further violations will result in additional penalties.
