Dressage High Point Breed Award
Horses competing for a Dressage High Point Breed Award must be ridden by an active member in good standing in the Corporation and owned by an active member in good standing. Points toward year-end awards accrue from sanctioned shows (USDF/USEF rated shows) and placings earned after rider and owner membership(s) are received and accepted by the association treasurer or the show secretary. No retroactive points will be awarded.
Horses must be entered, shown, and judged in at least three (3) separate dressage USDF/USEF shows approved by IDEA. The three (3) highest scores received on rides completed under three (3) different judges for three (3) different rides at three (3) different shows shall be averaged together to determine the award. At least (1) dressage test score must come from the highest test of the level awarded. Opportunity class scores cannot be used. A copy of the horse’s papers must be included with the score report. USEF registration papers that clearly state the horse’s breed will be accepted.
Only one award per breed will be awarded. The categories are:
- Quarter Horse
- Arabian/Half Arabian
- Draft/Draft Cross
- Spanish breed horses: PRE, Andalusian, Lusitano, Lipizzan, etc.
We are so excited about this upcoming show season. We are committed to supporting our riders at all levels. The board of IDEA is also looking for ways to create more opportunities for Eventers. We need ideas and show information.
