The USDF Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Finals, presented by Big Dee’s Tack and Vet Supply, recognize adult amateurs competing in equitation by promoting correct seat, position, and use of the aids in dressage.  Here are 5 things you may not know about this opportunity for adult amateurs:

Eligibility by Qualifying for Regional Championships

Anyone qualified to compete in a Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championships class may also enter the USDF Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Final class, held in conjunction with their regional championship.

Qualifying by Score

For competitors not qualified for a Great American/USDF Regional Championship, only one score of 70% or higher in an equitation class, earned within the qualifying period, is required to be eligible to participate in a USDF Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Final class.

Applying Scores for Awards

Scores earned in a USDF Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Final class, that meet the score criteria, are eligible to count towards USDF Dressage Seat Equitation Rider Awards.

Prizes

Winners of USDF Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Finals classes receive an engraved trophy, a sash, and a gift certificate presented by Big Dee’s Tack & Vet Supply.

Qualifying on a Different Horse

Riders do not need to qualify and compete in the Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Final class on the same horse.
