HARRISBURG, Pa. — After much debate and numerous exhibitor requests, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) announced it is going to maintain its previous policy regarding the acceptance of entries into the 3' and 3'3" "Green Hunter" divisions for the 2018 horse show.

On May 23, 2018, the PNHS announced the 3' and 3'3" Green Hunter entries would be accepted on a points earned basis as per GR 915.2. Because this represented a change from previous policy which accepted entries on a "first come first served" basis and was announced in the middle of the 2018 qualifying period, the PNHS has subsequently decided to re-institute the "first-come first-served" policy for the 2018 Show.

Beginning with the new qualifying period on Aug. 20, 2018, 3' and 3'3" Green Hunters will be qualified based on USEF points earned for the 2019 PNHS so that competition schedules can be planned accordingly.
