For the past 2 years at the IAHA nationals that has been a
concern and now at the natioal level, and most of the regionals that I am at
(although its harder to bring in one when most know you at that level) all
horses are checked in using a passport or copy of papers to verify that we have
that horse. One thing that has come up that alot of greys look alike, and
a chip or a brand would work great.

Championship this year there was a feeling that some ringers were brought
in. The horses that were supposedly qualified were not the ones that
were brought in instead of ringers and the possibility at some future date
there will be chips inserted in our horses so that we will know exactly who is
I posted this to RC about a month ago when I saw it in
the minutes on the AERC web page and find it completely incredulous that
not one person has asked about this or finds it worth talking about .
Obviously somebody had a good idea that some cheating was going on and wants
to do something about it . Has anyone heard anymore on this ?
