LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! The United States Equine Federation and the United States Hunter Jumper Association have finally made the ruling that everyone has been waiting for - or not. They have ruled that in order to continue to receive points, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR HORSE MICROCHIPPED.
The rule spells out that you can continue to show after the December 1, 2018 deadline, BUT you will NOT be able to get those points unless your horse is microchipped.
The three rule change proposals (EQ 103.2 – Tracking No. 295-15; HU 101.2 – Tracking No. 347-15; JP 100.2 – Tracking No. 366-15) state that in the 2018 competition year (December 1, 2017 – November 30, 2018) “all horses competing in classes that require USHJA registration must provide a microchip number that verifies their animal’s identity in order to compete for points, money won or be eligible for Federation and/or USHJA programs and awards where horses are required to be recorded or registered.” The 2018 competition year will act as a transitional year, where in order to collect points horses must provide a microchip number. Beginning with the 2019 competition year, all horses competing at a USEF licensed competition will be required to provide a microchip number or they will not be permitted to compete.
