Can a horse be owned jointly or by a company, LLC, ranch, etc. and still be shown in the amateur or youth divisions?

Horses shown in amateur and youth divisions must comply with the ownership rules outlined in Rule SHW220.1.

If a horse is owned by a ranch, corporation, joint ID, etc. authorization does not have to be on file.
