UKPHA Performance Rules 2019 - revised
2019 UKPHA Walk / Jog Rule Amendment: Click here for the revised rules
After a trial run of the Walk/Jog rule as previously stated in the UKPHA 2019 Performance Rules at the Oakridge Easter show and the feedback from the members who were there, UKPHA committee have amended the rule at this time, to exclude all classes from the rule except for paint classes, i.e. APHA & UKPHA .
The rule is now worded as follows :
"Entering any APHA or UKPHA Open or Amateur (including Novice Amateur where available) categories will exclude that exhibitor from entering UKPHA Walk / Jog classes for the duration of that show on the same horse. In other words, if you enter a UKPHA walk/jog class you cannot enter any APHA / UKPHA classes outside of walk/jog for that show."
The rule is effective immediately.
As you can understand this rule is not to discourage exhibitors from entering APHA Amateur or Open classes (i.e. loping classes) but is designed to make the UKPHA walk/jog classes as level a playing field as possible. Walk/Jog is becoming a serious category in its own right within APHA and UKPHA would like to support and encourage people who for whatever reason are not comfortable loping, to enter the ring and have fun and challenge themselves.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this decision and with the members help, UKPHA committee will continue to drive UKPHA forward.
