The mission of these competitions is to provide an opportunity for all CDS Adult Amateur riders to qualify and compete against others of similar skills and experience. The regional nature of these shows will help provide our membership with a developmental path to gain competitive experience, to promote excellence and increase awareness of and support for CDS Chapters.
Three Regional Adult Amateur Competitions will be held each year. There will be one in the North, Central and South regions as defined in the CDS Standing Rules. Qualifying season started September 6, 2016 so your scores from this fall count for 2017. CDS Championship scores do not count toward qualifying. Cut off for qualifying will be 12 days before the competition. Don’t forget to send in your qualifying fee of $25 (per horse and rider team / per level) to the CDS Central Office, or sign up online at wwww.california-dressage.org. Scores earned before paying your $25 fee will count toward qualifying.
Winners of each level, Training through Intermediaire 1, Novice and Elite, will automatically be considered qualified for the current year CDS Championships.
