USEF Competition Lite

Owners and riders are not required to be members of the Federation, but any competing member, 18 or older must have completed the SafeSport Training prior to the first day of competition. Anyone signing as trainer on the entry form, must be a competing member of USEF and must have completed the SafeSport Training prior to the first day of competition. Drug fees are not charged at a Competition Lite show, but any horse is subject to testing. Medication forms must be filed electronically.
Lite Competitions will award half-value HOTY points to all USEF recorded horses, whose owner is a competing member.

In April 2024, the JD Massey Classic Horse Show celebrates its 90th year.  The original event, which started in June 1933, was known as The Greenville Horse Show.  The founding members' determination for the "show to go on" continued its success even during World War II.  This year's event, heralded as one of the longest continually running American Saddlebred shows in the country, is a reflection of similar determination.
