USDF will presume qualified horse/rider combinations will compete in the region in which the rider resides as determined by the address associated with the rider’s membership information on file as of July 1. Riders are NOT required to be a resident of the region to compete in that region’s championship. Riders, who wish to compete at Regional Championships in a region other than their region of residence, must submit a Change of Region Form, and $25 processing fee if submitted by July 1. Change of Region Forms may be submitted between July 2 up to August 1 with a late fee of $100; and from August 2 to the closing date of the championship region the rider is declaring for, with a late fee of $300. No changes to region may be made after the closing date of the region in which a rider wishes to enter, for any reason. In addition, all persons living outside of the United States must declare a region no later than July 1 of the current competition year.
**Please note that a rider’s region change will not officially go into effect until July 1.
