The proposals on the membership fee for the next years, equipment and shoeing, standardization of terms, disqualification, re-shoeing, late withdrawal, C-Finals, reserve youth riders and many more were accepted by the delegates. Also the breeding proposals on the clarification text for naming of the horses and the head judge regulation were accepted.
