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.

"Too plain" is not a description that fits today's wire-to-wire winner of the Twin Rivers Spring International's inaugural CCI4*-L. But that's what Amber Levine heard five years ago after importing the now 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Classe VDL x Walta) as a sales prospect. So, she kept him. His long-delayed debut at the CCI4*-L level proved the wisdom of that decision.
