Newly Revised USDF Judge’s Checklist Now available

Newly Revised USDF Judge’s Checklist Now available

With all the recent changes in classes and rules it can be very hard for judges to keep up with the current rules and procedures. 

The USDF Judges Committee formed a working group consisting of judges and experts who combined their knowledge and expertise to revise the USDF Judges Checklist.

The new format is easier to read with live links that take readers to the most current rules and regulations on the USDF, USEF and FEI web sites.

The Judges Checklist is also a valuable resource for “L” Program Graduates and those currently enrolled in the “L” Education Program.

While geared toward judges; scribes and competitors will also find some very useful information in the checklist.

As a USDF member benefit, the checklist is a free to download through eTRAK.  Just click to open and download.
