GVDS Schooling Shows

Schooling shows offer a fun atmosphere for all levels of exhibitors and horses to practice their rides. They are also great for introducing young or new horses to the show atmosphere; setting learning objectives; and having fun. Schooling shows include judging with scoring and comments; scores count towards GVDS, WDAA, and WDACO awards and new for 2022 - the USDF Regional Schooling Show Awards Program.

GVDS & RMDS Recognized Shows

Recognized shows are the top tier of GVDS dressage competitions. They are licensed by  USEF and USDF, follow USEF and USDF show rules, and offer classes from Training Level through Fourth Level, Freestyles, and FEI tests. GVDS and RMDS shows that are not recognized by USDF and USEF also offer Introductory classes, which are eligible for year-end awards in both organizations.  

 

You and your horse must be members of the USEF and USDF organizations to compete in these events.
