The Amateur Rider Association of America (ARAA) has committed to standardize the height and the width in the Low, Medium and High Amateur Owner Jumper divisions across the country. With the USEF new rule and sub-categories of 1.20m/125m, 1.30m/1.35m and 1.40m/1.45m this year, it is now easier for shows across the country to offer the correct heights in the A/O jumper divisions. David Burton, WEFÕs show manager, is working hard this year to have consistent courses in the three levels of A/O jumpers, and the 2017 season will set a standard for all of the shows across the country to offer these three new heights in the jumper ring. Bill Moroney, President of the USEF, believes that as time goes on, the U.S. will be able to offer these three divisions a year-end qualifying competition.
