Recently, I announced that I am a disabled equestrian.
I just wanted to follow up with some research I've recently done. I know that I need to start to get my ducks in a row if I'd like to continue to show!
USEF requires a Dispensation Certificate.
|Oops. Something else seems wrong with this picture. Can I get a dispensation for this too?|
It specifically asks what the disability is, what's the medical diagnosis, what adaptive aids are needed and so forth. Absolutely zero adaptive aids besides what is approved & listed on the sheet can be permitted in the ring.
A copy of the certificate must accompany all entries when sent in.
So, now that I've found the right certificate, all that's left would be to find equipment that would work!
Off to try and see what might work as a microphone/head set combination. Better yet, finding a little ear piece that can communicate with a microphone and fit under the helmet comfortably.
Any suggestions? :)
