AP riders allowed to wear spurs in dressage & showing

Advanced Primary riders are now permitted to wear spurs in pure dressage and showing competitions.

This does not apply to any jumping class such as performance or working hunter, show jumping or cross-country.

Under existing rules, only blunt spurs of plain metal may be used and the tip must contain metal. Spurs that have a smooth rotating rubber or plastic ball on the shank may also be used.

The spur, however, may not exceed 2 cms when worn by Advanced Primary riders.

Advanced Primary riders may also wear spurs in showing classes but this not include performance or working hunter competitions.

The rule changes will be available in the 2018 rule book which will be published shortly.
