USEF and the IALHA work together for the enhancement of our sport and breeds.  The USEF Breed and Non-FEI Discipline Committees work to assist the USEF Board in preparing, recommending, and submitting standards for the conduct of competitions, and rules for the conduct of all classes. 

The Breed/Discipline Division Committees may be called upon by the USEF President for advice and counsel as to technical questions regarding the conduct of the classes in the Breed/Disciplines.  As an affiliate, the IALHA is responsible for appointing 60% of the USEF Andalusian/Lusitano Rules Committee. The IALHA President and the USEF Committee Chair nominate individuals for appointment, selected with the following criteria:  Individuals who are experienced in the work of the breed as an athlete, owner, trainer, coach, breeder, licensed official, or competition organizer within the applicable breed or discipline. 

A portion of the IALHA appointees for the USEF Andalusian/Lusitano Rules Committee is required to be athletes. An athlete is defined as a competitor who has competed within the last 10 years at the IALHA National Show and has placed in the top 10. The IALHA currently has a committee of 11 members, 60% appointed by the affiliate and the remainder by USEF. 

As a recognized affiliate organization of US Equestrian, IALHA is subject to comply with the laws, rules, and regulations that fall under US Equestrian’s jurisdiction. This is also reflected in our By-laws. The IALHA fully supports the Safe Sport initiatives aimed at providing a competition environment free from sexual abuse, harassment, and bullying. We believe that the IALHA members agree these goals are in the best interest of the sport, our youth, and the entire equine industry. IALHA complies with Safe Sport measures including but not limited to reporting requirements, training requirements, and suspension reciprocity.
