Change to: If entries warrant- minimum 16, management may split and if 32 entries management may split again. California split is recommended.

NEHC Hunter Seat Medals
Please note that the Adult and Junior Hunt Seat Medal qualifying fence heights were changed a few
years ago. We have found that some shows are still using the old specs.
It previously stated for Adult “fences not to exceed 3’; for Juniors “fences not to exceed 3’3”.
New Rule Book states:
Adult Fences are to be set at a height of 2’9” to 3’
Junior Fences are to be set at a height of 3’ to 3’3”
NEHC wants to make sure riders don’t qualify below the height they will see at the finals.
