All tests

  • A reminder that all GVDS shows, schooling and recognized, operate under USEF/USDF guidelines. We allow for some flexibility on our schooling shows but are strict with our recognized shows.

  • Please remember that helmets are required for ALL riders 18 years of age and under whenever mounted at all shows. Schooling shows permit adult western dressage riders to not wear helmets but do require ALL classical dressage riders to wear a helmet when mounted.

  • Please refer to USEF, DR 119 Participation in Dressage Competition for more information about how many classes a horse can be ridden in at a show. https://www.usef.org/forms-pubs/F3p8pgrWgAo/dr-dressage-division

    • 1: No horse may be ridden more than once in any Dressage class (including separate divisions or sections of the same class). This is applicable for the same horse being ridden by multiple riders at the same level.

    • 2: Horses are limited to a maximum of three Dressage rides per day at Fourth Level and below or two Dressage rides per day above Fourth Level. Horses competing at both Fourth Level and Prix St. Georges, or their equivalents, are limited to two Dressage rides per day. Horses competing in FEI Para-Equestrian tests are limited to a maximum of two Dressage rides per day including non-Para-Equestrian FEI, USEF, or USDF tests. FEI Para-Equestrian tests may be ridden at non-consecutive levels to USDF, USEF, and other FEI tests. Horses may enter no more than two consecutive levels, Freestyle levels included, at any one competition. This is applicable to horses being shown both western and classical dressage or horses being shown by multiple riders.

  • If you plan to ride a musical freestyle, you must bring two (2) CDs. Please check to be sure that the CDs play on a standard CD player before the show.  Per DR 129.6a. Musical Freestyle Ride, there is no designated format.  The show will not permit music to be played from a phone or other device.  Musical Freestyle Sound Checks will be held at 7:30 am on Friday, June 4 or at pre-arranged time with the Show Secretary.

  • We will be using a secondary gate for exiting following the completion of a ride at the “C” end of the arena. This will be appropriately marked as well as being guided by the announcer and bit checker.

If you have any questions about any of these items, please direct your questions to Pat White, our show manager.  970.216.0056 (c) or pwhite9882@aol.com
