    Question YR-entry question

    Random, but what exactly does this rule mean:

    3. YOUNG RIDERS. An Organizer may offer a competition for Young Riders at Tests, at
    Horse Trials at the Preliminary and Intermediate Level and at One Star and Two Star Events.
    Competitors shall compete as Young Riders from the beginning of the calendar year in which
    they reach the age of 16 until the end of the calendar year in which they reach the age of 21.

    I interpret it to mean that if you turn 21 in 2011, that at the end of THAT year, you are no longer eligible for the YR division. Correct? And if somebody else (even an official at the event) says that you are fine because you're still 21 THIS year (but turning 22...) what then?

    Just curious!

    I would interpret that the same way as you. If the person turned 21 in 2011, they would not be eligible this year.

    You are correct. YR eligibility is through the end of the year they turn 21. They're no longer eligible on January 1, regardless of their birthday.

    So if you turn 21 on say Ap 4, 2012, are you still eligible as a YR for all of 2012?

    Yes. But if you turn 21 on Dec. 30, you are only allowed to compete as a YR when you are actually 20 (ask me how I know).

    Huh. But the rule, you should still be able to compete in all of 2012 if you turn 21 on Dec 30, 2012. Or Dec 31 for that matter.

    That is why I asked the question.

    A 2012 birthday turning 21 is a a 2012 birthday turning 21. Doesn't matter what date.

    So, how do you know? (You said to ask ;-) )

    I would assume she meant she did not get to compete at all when she was 21, for example if her birthday was Dec 31st, and she turned 21 in 2011 she was not allowed to compete in YR this current year (2012) while many other people get to compete while they are 21.

    But on the other end, if you turn 16 on Dec. 30, you get to compete as a YR when you are actually 15.
