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).

The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is pleased to welcome back longtime sponsor, FITS Riding, Ltd. for 2022. They are returning as a ‘Bronze Sponsor of the USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Nutrena Feeds (AEC)’, a ‘Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Adult Team Championships (ATC)’, a ‘Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Classic Series’, and a ‘Contributing Sponsor of the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships.’ As a sponsor of these USEA programs, FITS will generously provide gift certificates as prizes for the Intercollegiate championship competitors, AEC and ATC competitors, and Classic Series winners.
The USEA offers many programs to help the development of upcoming event horses such as the Future Event Horse (FEH) program which focuses on yearlings, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds, the Young Event Horse (YEH) program which serves as an eventing talent search for 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds under saddle, and the New Event Horse program which is an adaption of the YEH program that was designed to serve as an introduction of the sport of eventing for horse and rider that provides a stepping stone to recognized eventing. For the first time ever, USEA Area IV will be hosting a competition that features all three of these programs at Woodloch Stable in Hugo, Minnesota on July 9, 2022.
It’s time to meet the teams of the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships! A total of 92 competitors, 12 schools, and 23 teams will be competing at the 2022 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships on May 21-22 at Chattahoochee Hills H.T. in Fairburn, Georgia.
