"Horses May Step Up In Class Divisions, and Back Down Again"

The Board of Directors recently approved the ruling:  Horses may "Step Up" in shoe size description classes.  Example:  Lite Shod can step up to Open Shod,  Trail Plesure to Lite Shod, etc., and Can then step back down again to their original designated division, All at the Same Show.

This ruling is to encourage entries, and was also, by requests from exhibitors.  This ruling DOES NOT APPLY to stepping up in AGE, only by class description.  In order to "Step Up", your horse must stay in its AGE division, as per class description
