Horse Management (HM) refers to the unmounted knowledge portion of the USPC curriculum. Horse Management knowledge is tested during the members' ratings, is applied practically at all meetings, and at rallies when they compete both by demonstrating teamwork and unmounted skills in the barns and showcasing their mounted skills in the ring. It is an important portion of our mission to develop members who are well-rounded horsemen and women -- on and off the field.

The Virginia Region's Horse Management Organizer (HMO) has put together some articles to help members and their parents prepare for a rally. If you have questions about an HM rule and any other rally issues, please don't hesitate to contact our HMO at any time. Contact information can be found on our Our Region/Officers & Contacts page.

Turnout Rubrics

The HM Committee worked on a new scoring system and, to support that, created rubrics to help aid in the scoring.  It does not look like the new system is going to "take off", but the HMO of DelMarVa took it, and messaged it to work with the current scoring system.  This is a really good thing to study if you are a mystified member, an HMJ learning to do turnouts, or an experienced sort looking to become more consistent.

Delmarva HM Newsletter

An HMO from DelMarVa put together this HM newsletter.  It contains a nice summary of HM information for rally.
