The HSI pony HP Committee reserves the right to alter, adjust, amend or disregard any of the above arrangements in agreement with the OC at any time in the best interest of selecting the best ponies. If any of the selection competitions or elements are cancelled or declared void then adjustments will be made and put on the Horse Sport Ireland website as soon as practical.
Qualification places are allocated on the understanding that the CSIP and CSIYP will go ahead as planned. If for any reason they are cancelled HSI will accept no liability for any costs for competitors arising out of competing in the trials or any other losses as a result of the CSIP or CSI YP not going ahead.
