Rule change proposals usually dominate discussions at the United States Hunter Jumper Association annual meeting. But there may be much bigger change afoot, says incoming USHJA president Mary Babick, as the gathering comes to the Palm Springs area Dec. 11-15. The lifelong hunter/jumper trainer and sport advocate anticipates that rule changes will take a back seat to debate about big picture concepts meant to bring equestrian sport in line with mainstream sports, especially in safety and integrity.
