USEF Suspension

What could a person have done that would result in their suspension from the usef and all usef competitions?

What would cause a horse to be suspended from the usef and all usef competitions?

Usually a serious, or series of drug infractions.

There are however many other things that could result in suspension.

That is my first thought. Drugs.

Yep, usually drugs, or mistreatment of horses. Owing USEF money (not paying entry fees, membership fees, etc) is fairly common as well. You're not allowed to show until you pay back that money. Any breaking of major rules, particularly competing in a division you aren't supposed to be in (professionals in amateur divisions, showing in a green division on a horse that is not green eligable, ponies not in their proper height division, etc) is considered an offense.
Usually you're tried before a committee and they fine you and possibly bar you for the rest of the show season. I think after 3 offenses you're suspended.

If you ever get a chance to read the Equestrian magazine (USEF's magazine that you get if you're a member) they have a list at the back of every issue of the people who were suspended and why. It's awesome! I'm glad they publicize te people who break the rules!

Thanks, yep these were some of my original thoughts as well.
The reason I asked is because, I was given an arabian to work with that had been suspended back in 07' and so had his previous owner. He had been a halter champion
You guys have pretty much confirmed my initial suspicions

And that is very interesting, I did not know they publicized suspensions in the back of the magazine. I think that is a very good thing as well

For how long? I though most suspensions were only for the year. I think banning is usually for several years.

Any ideas on why? :)

Could it be a soundness issue or is thehorse a bleeder?? They are the only reasons I can think of to ban a horse, because its not like the horse is giving itself the drugs or abusing itself. And the horse definitely doesnt choose what classes it is entered in...

The horse and the previous owner are suspended until further notice.

Horse is totally sound and has absolutely no health issues
great bloodlines, great movement, look-at-me attitude, he belongs in the ring and he knows it

I lucked out by taking him and im excited to get him back to the show ring
