The United States Equestrian Federation takes seriously its role as a governing body for equestrian sport and implements programs and policies to protect human and equestrian athletes.[...]
The USEF Rulebook is designed to delineate boundaries that create an environment for fair and honest competition within which equestrians can enjoy competing safely, with integrity and respect.
USEF Rules are intended:
- To promote integrity, honesty, equal opportunity, fair play, responsibility, respect and enjoyment in equestrian sport.
- To keep competition in the perspective of the USEF stated mission.
- To encourage and reward performance excellence and initiative at every level.
- To protect the health, safety, and well-being of participants.
