If you are an AMATEUR please fill out the "Amateur Application" only. You DO NOT need to fill out the "Individual Membership" AND the "Amateur Upgrade" online forms. Apparently, we are having members submitting both forms. This is incorrect and you are paying more.
Amateur members only need to submit the "Amateur Application" online application. You can show in open classes as an amateur if you or family members own the horse, please see the exact amateur membership rules in the rulebook.
In essence, Amateurs do not need an open membership."Amateur Upgrade" is only if you already have an individual membership (open) and want to show in amateur classes.
