*** This is a lesson show, for lesson students, lesson horses, and non-USEF, PHA, or sanctioned event exhibitors and horses will be judged accordingly. Riders and horses may participate in USEF or PHA-rated shows but only in the
non-rated classes. The eligibility of the horse and rider shall be left to the discretion of the E.S.R.A.S Committee***
** Participants in the E.S.R.A.S MAY participate in the NWNY Summer Series **

The USA-Equestrian and NYS helmet law has stipulated that all riders classified as Beginner and any rider under the age of 18 are required to wear an ASTM SEI approved riding helmet. The Empire State Riding Academy Committee is therefore requiring that all riders participating in the Walk-Trot and Beginner Divisions must wear the ASTM SEI approved riding helmet. All other riders participating in the series that are over the age of 18 must also wear the ASTM approved riding helmet.
