INFORMATION FOR COMPETITORS AND EVENT ORGANISERS

British Carriagedriving
Yellow Warning Card

Where there is abuse of horses in any form, or incorrect behaviour towards event officials or any other party connected to the event, the President of the Ground Jury, the Technical Delegate or the Steward, if appointed under Article 911, instead of instituting the procedures foreseen in the Legal System, may deliver to the Person Responsible, either by hand or by any other suitable means, a Yellow Warning Card.

Should the same Person Responsible receive one more Yellow Warning Card at the same or any other National Event within one year of the delivery of the first Yellow Warning Card, the Person Responsible shall be automatically suspended for a period of two (2) months immediately following the event at which the Person Responsible is competing. The British Carriagedriving Council shall be responsible to notify the Person Responsible of such suspension.

The Yellow (warning) cards are available from the British Carriagedriving office and blank cards can be supplied to the event organiser with their paperwork.
