Designed to recognize the accomplishments of specific breeds in dressage, the Adequan® / USDF All-Breeds Awards are presented to horses declared for a participating registry/organization (PO) with USDF.  With over 60 breed organizations on board for 2020, there are tons of opportunities for you and your horse to gain recognition.  Here are 5 facts you may not know about this awards program.

Declaration Form

An All-Breeds Awards declaration only needs to be made once using the USDF All-Breeds Awards Declaration Form and will stay on file for future competition years.  Declaration forms may be faxed, mailed, or e-mailed to USDF and must include a copy of the horse’s official breed registry papers and the $35 declaration fee.

Participating Organizations

Award requirements for both USDF and the All-Breeds Participating Organization must be met each competition year, October 1 through September 30.  USDF award requirements may be found in the current USDF Member Guide.  Please contact the All-Breeds Awards Participating Organization directly regarding their award requirements.

Changing Your Declaration

A horse may only be declared for one All-Breeds Awards Participating Organization at a time.  However, you may change a horse’s All-Breeds declaration by submitting an updated declaration form, with declaration change fee and applicable official breed registry papers.

Deadline

Deadline to declare a horse for the current competition year All-Breeds Awards is August 1.  Late fees apply to declarations received on or after August 2.  Please see the declaration form for more information.

Current Year Foals

Current year foals may be declared for the current year All-Breeds Awards with a letter of eligibility or foal registration certificate up until September 30 and the late fee does not apply.
