The Grand Valley Dressage Society (GVDS) offers its own year-end awards program to highlight the exceptional talent of our members, and their horses, recognize our outstanding volunteers, and thank our sponsors. All GVDS shows, schooling and recognized, are considered equal, hence a wonderful opportunity for all our showing riders to earn an award.
Our annual holiday dinner offers a chance to recognize each other's achievements through our awards and foster camaraderie among our members .
Important to Remember
The full description of our Awards Program, a list of eligible shows, and minimum requirements for qualifying are contained in this document: Grand Valley Dressage 2021 Year-End Award Rules.
Here are two important things to remember about your eligibility for earning an award:
In order to be eligible to receive year-end awards, members must volunteer a minimum of two (2) hours, or become a Platinum Sponsor. Contact Barbara Progess, Volunteer Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 801-721-7111) to volunteer at a show. Contact any GVDS officer to volunteer in another capacity.
Owner and rider must be current GVDS/RMDS members or GVDS Supporting Members at the time scores are accrued, so if you are not a member, join today! (Pony Club members are not required to be GVDS members - please refer to the rules document for information.)
