USDF Regional Adult Amateur Equitation Program

The USDF Regional Adult Amateur Equitation Program recognizes adult amateurs competing in equitation and promotes correct seat, position, and use of the aids in dressage. Adult Amateurs wishing to qualify to compete in an Adult Amateur Equitation Regional Final class presented by Big Dee’s Tack and Vet Supply may qualify to do so by earning a 70%, or higher in any Dressage Seat Equitation class (except walk-trot) or by qualifying for the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championships (freestyles exempt).

Dressage Seat Equitation Rider Awards recognize the achievements of all riders, including adult amateurs, in Dressage Seat Equitation.
