IDEA Awards

Every IDEA Member wishing to take part in Year-end Awards must submit a score report by October 15th of the year. The score report, plus copies of pertinent IDEA approved show dressage tests (dressage) or USEA report from all USEA/USEF recognized shows attended (eventing) must be received by the competition chair (download score report) no later than October 15th of the competition year to be considered for an award. We suggest that you keep all of your dressage tests as the year progresses, if for no other reason than to note your progress in the training of yourself and your horse!

If you have any questions please contact our Competitions Chair Stepanie Bonney.
