Anyone well versed in EC ammy rules here to shed some light?
Local rider teaches at her family farm. It’s posted on social media and can be seen at local shows her coaching students.
“An EC amateur may not train or show a horse, or instruct a rider or driver, when remuneration for this activity will be given to a corporation or farm which he or she, or his or her family, owns or controls.” Is how the rule reads in the rule book.
Rider is showing in ammy classes at EC gold level shows. Am I misunderstanding this rule? I’ve refused reimbursement (from friends, so it’s not likely I’d take the cash anyways) for helping with kids because I’ve been paranoid about amateur status - not that I have many showing ambitions for the near future anyways lol.
