Your yellow master card does not need to be returned to the Office unless it is full or nearly full.
The yellow master card is used until both sides are full or nearly full.
It does not go back to the Office at the end of the season.
When your mastercard is nearly full, it should be returned to the EGB office with an SAE.
The Office will then issue a new yellow card and mark the old one as no longer in use.
If first class stamps are used then this can usually be done within the week.
If you forget and go to a ride and with a full master card then you do not have a valid master card.
You will have to pay a deposit, you will have to pay an admin charge, you may have to downgrade to a PR class.
If the master card goes missing at a ride – tell the Organiser or the TS immediately.
Put a notice on the Forum, asking for the other riders to check their logbooks for your card.
If after a week, say, there is no sign of the card, contact the Ride Organiser to confirm it has not been traced and the RO will contact the EGB office and ask for a duplicate card to be issued.
If you have lost your horse’s master card then you may not be allowed to compete.
If you go to a ride without a valid master card, you will have to pay a deposit, you will have to pay an admin charge, you may have to downgrade to a PR class.
To get a new card, contact the EGB Office and request a replacement master card – there will be an admin charge for this replacement card.
