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.
