Gladstone, New JerseyJanuary 2, 2002The United States Equestrian Team (USET) has announced that in preparation for proposed changes to the USET Computer Ranking List, it will test the new criteria for at least six months to determine the validity of the modifications.
Proposed changes to the present system include the establishment of both a National and International computer list. Both lists will include the results of competitions worldwide, as well as rank riders of all nationalities, not just those from the U.S. The International list will include only FEI recognized competitions and will be used for USET selection purposes.
Sally Ike, USET Director of Show Jumping Activities, commented, The USET Show Jumping Committee is proposing such sweeping modifications that it is critical that we have a trial run with these test lists prior to making any permanent changes. I believe that the proposed changes will dramatically improve an already successful system.
