WELLINGTON, Fla., Dec. 26--Equestrian Sport Productions has issued guidelines for entries in the 2009 FTI Winter Equestrian Festival to save exhibitors time.
The aim of the guidelines is to alert exhibitors to rule changes and to shorten time spent making entries in the show office or online at http://www.showgroundslive.com
"It will be much easier for those planning to show at WEF to enter online the first time they plan to show," said Jenn Glossen, WEF show secretary. "When they check in at the show office they can declare their weeks and we can roll their entry forward. This will save a lot of time for the exhibitor. Instead of having to do the same work for each show they can just do it once. This will also insure that we have correct information."
Every horse must be properly recorded with the USEF/USHJA and fees paid. Horses with lifetime recording prior to Dec. 1, 2008 are exempt from the fee. ESP recommends horse owners do this in advance. It can be done online at http://www.usef.org
. A printed copy of the horse registration should be brought to the office.
For exhibitors to be issued a back number, the office requires the following:
1. Form of payment--check or credit/debit card. If paying by check, the office needs a check for each week the exhibitor plans to show;
2. Proof of USEF and USHJA membership for the rider, trainer, and owner. If proof is not provided, a non-member fee of $60 is automatically assessed for each person without current USEF and USHJA membership. If proof of current membership is provided before the end of the show, the non-member fees will be removed;
3. Complete addresses for every owner, rider, and trainer associated with the entry. New USEF rules do not allow incomplete information;
4. Social Security number or Federal Tax ID Number for all prize money recipients. Prize money can not be awarded without this information. Foreign riders not resident in the U.S. are exempt from this provision.
5. Prize money can be paid in full and not have it applied against entries and other charges so long as horse show charges are paid.
6. Only one number per horse will be issued in 2009. It is the responsibility of the rider or trainer to inform the horse show office how the show bill should be divided if the horse is ridden by more than one person. If the information is not provided, the owner will be billed automatically.
