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).
Since the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was founded in 2014, it has grown in popularity and participation each year. The USEA is excited to have 23 intercollegiate team challenges on the calendar in 2021 in addition to the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, which will be held at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, Virginia on May 27-30.
In 2000 and with the support of Joan Iversen Goswell, the Worth the Trust Educational Scholarships were established to provide financial assistance to amateurs to pursue their education in eventing. The funds from the Worth the Trust Educational Scholarships may be used for training opportunities such as clinics, working student positions, and private or group instruction, or to learn from an official, course designer, technical delegate, judge, veterinarian, or organizer.

The USEA is sorry to announce that there will be no USEA Educational Symposium held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The USEA Educational Symposium is hosted annually each February as a week of learning for participants and auditors.
