Safety Guidance:

  • Helmet Guidance: Use of an ASTM/SEI-approved helmet is recommended at all times while mounted. An ASTM/SEI-approved helmet is required for participation in the USHJA Outreach Competition as well as any USEF horse shows. For a complete list of approved helmets, visit the SEI website.
  • Safety Cups: At all USEF approved events, FEI approved safety mechanisms must be used in conjunction with a safety cup that is at least 1 ½ inches deep and at least 3 inches wide for the back rail of oxers. For USHJA International Hunter Derby classes, caps on walls and gates with a separate plank style top element that can be knocked down are permitted. Learn more about safety caps from the USEF web site.
  • Sharps Containers: Sharps containers are recommended for the safety of all competition participants. Use of sharps containers at a USHJA Outreach Competition is not required, but are highly encouraged. Competitions interested in complying with USEF rules and regulations should have sharps containers. USEF Rule GR1210.4 requires that a minimum of one sharps container be provided per competition. Additionally, one sharps container per 50 occupied stalls must be available in facilities housing competition horses.
