    Default Ear plugs now legal?

    Has anyone else read through the proposed rule changes for Equine Canada? The ear plugs allowed stood out to me, but I have not finished going through the changes. Had to look up Kvall stirrups...not shocked that they are not allowed.

    Where have you seen it?

    D. Equipment forbidden from being used on the show grounds
    Martingales (other than running), bit guards, bit burrs, tongue tie, any kind
    of gadgets (such as bearing, running or balancing reins, etc) and any form
    of blinkers, ear plugs, illegal spurs are, under penalty of elimination, strictly
    forbidden from being used on the show grounds at any time during the
    competition.
    Exception: Any equipment which is designated to facilitate the comfort of
    the horse is permitted in the stable. i.e. ear plugs would be allowed in the
    stable
    but never in the warm-up or competition arena.

    ETA : Ok, I saw where it is. Rule change proposals for 2013!

    ARTICLE E 4.9 MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT
    C. Approved for competition – no permission required
    6. Ear plugs are allowed in competition.

    Well, we'll see next year!
