Region 5 June News

Summer is here, shows are in full swing for our Region, it’s great to see the fantastic support for the shows in our Region!  There are quite a few clinic opportunities as well, so if you’re not showing, or even if you are, I hope you are learning a lot too.  Remember our blessing and enjoy your time with your families and animals this summer.

The 2024 USDF Convention will be December 4th-7th in Houston, Texas. Come visit Region 9 and be a part of the governance process and attend some fabulous educational sessions.

US Equestrian Introduces Microchip Rule for Equine Health and Safety

by US Equestrian Communications Department | Sep 5, 2023, 10:11 AM EST

Lexington, Ky. – The US Equestrian Federation strives to consistently ensure the safety and welfare of both our human and equine athletes. One fundamental aspect of equine safety is microchipping. Microchips in horses allow for immediate onsite verification of horses for the purpose of safeguarding the health of each horse. This is vital, especially during times of disease outbreaks or natural disasters.

To this end, the US Equestrian Board of Directors approved a new microchipping rule during the 2023 Mid-Year Board meeting. Beginning December 1, 2025, under GR 1101.1, all horses competing in USEF-licensed or -endorsed competitions must be microchipped with a 15-digit ISO compliant 11784/11785 chip.

If you are wondering how you can  get more involved with TDC, we need help on committees! Do you like writing? We need help with newsletter submissions! Do you want to help with the recognized competitions? Join the Show Committee! Do you like putting together events? We can use help preparing for the clinics/symposiums, socials, & schooling shows! Are you craving more social activities for club members? We would love a small committee of people that organize social events! Do you like to be more on the tech side of things? Perhaps helping maintain the website would be of interest! Let us know how you would like to support dressage in our community through volunteering with Tucson Dressage Club.   Contact us with your enthusiasm at tucsondressagclub2@gmail.com or bobbi@amadoequine.com
