USEF Presidential Modification

 July 20, 2018

 Dear Mr. Nicoll:

Thank you for submitting a Request for a Presidential Modification to the application of DC922.4 on behalf of the USEF Driving Sport Committee. A Presidential Modification is granted in cases of substantial, extraordinary circumstances. When measured against that criterion, it has been determined that your Request meets the standard for a Presidential Modification and is, therefore, approved.

As a result of this Presidential Modification, driving carriages at the Preliminary and Intermediate levels will not be subject to the minimum weight requirements outlined in DC922.4 for the remainder of the 2018 competition year.

In reviewing the Request, it was noted that the Driving Sport Committee has approved a rule change which removes the minimum weight requirement of a driving carriage at the Preliminary and Intermediate level. It was also noted that 2018 is the first year in which driving competitions are offering Preliminary and Intermediate levels. This Presidential Modification is effective immediately and will continue through the effective date of the approved rule change – December 1, 2018.
For more information

Sincerely,
William J. Moroney
USEF Chief Executive Officer
