The Select Mare program provides E-label mares with the opportunity to take a performance test instead of completing performance requirements. The mare must still have an approved foal, but radiographs and vet exam are not required. There will be a grace period for mares over 6 who earned their first E-label to participate in the program.

The Select Mare test consists of the following:

  1. Under saddle.  Mares will complete the USEF 4 yr old dressage test (essentially a first level test). 

  2. Free jumping.  Mares will free jump through a jump chute (4 yr old jumping requirements - 110 cm or 3'9") Judges may adjust the height to accommodate the skill level of the mare.

    Scoring:  Scores are documented for both sections of the test.  Mares that successfully complete the test to the judges satisfaction are awarded their Select Mare label.
