These shows are recognized by the Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA recognition # pending) and eligible for 1⁄2 points for Lifetime Achievement Awards. They are also qualifying shows for the WDAA World Show and eligible for North American Western Dressage TRAX Teams and Individual Awards.
Top six places in each class for dressage and western dressage for Junior, Young Rider, Adult Amateur, and Open divisions will receive ribbons within three weeks after the show closes.
We anticipate that entries will fill quickly and because there is a limited number of rides available for each show. Early registration is recommended. During registration you will declare the division and level you plan to ride in. You will list your test when you submit your video.
Championship classes will be included in the April show. To qualify for championship classes, participants need a score of 60% or higher from any test of the level in one of the three previous virtual shows.
Fees are $45/test for IDCTA Members, $55/test for non-members, plus a $10 office fee per horse/rider combination. Please submit one registration per horse/rider combination.
Green as Grass - Training Level may be ridden in large (20 x 60 m) or small (20 x 40 m) arena. First level and above shall be ridden in large arena (20 x 60 m).
Equine Network is thrilled to have the support of the United States Eventing Association (USEA) for the third annual Horse Week event brought to you by Boehringer Ingelheim.
It was a busy day at Stable View Oktoberfest in Aiken, South Carolina as all FEI divisions and a few national divisions kicked off their competition weekend, including the 2023 USEF/USEA Developing Horse Eventing National Championships. Both the 6-year-olds and 7-year-olds got their chance to shine down the centerline at the start of the day, with the 7-year-olds also giving their best effort across Michael Vallaincourt’s show jumping track later this afternoon.
The USEA Eventing Coaches Program (ECP) has initiated a renewed focus on the diverse challenges coaches in various regions of the country may be facing. To this end, the program is in the process of enlisting representatives in each of the 10 USEA areas to help guide the program as warranted for the unique needs of each specific area.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) has opened nominations for the annual appreciation awards through Oct. 29. This is an opportunity for the sport to recognize those horses and riders who excelled in eventing throughout the year. It is also an opportunity to recognize and honor the very important people who have served the sport tirelessly both in a non-riding capacity and riding capacity during their golden years.
