Membership
How to join and why

Membership

We are part of the Virginia Dressage (VADA) a Group Member Organization (GMO) under the USDF. If you would like to become a member, you have come to the right place! For more information, read here or contact our membership committee via email: vnmembership@vadanova.org.

Individual Membership

Individual Membership extends from December 1st or the date membership form/payment is submitted (whichever is later) to November 30th of the current membership year. The cost for individual membership is $50.00 and can be paid using VADA/Nova Bucks earned from volunteering, Check, Cash, or PayPal. The membership form can be mailed in with your payment, sent with your entry and payment to a show, provided to the show secretary with payment on the day of the show. You may also joing using Paypal on the VADA/Nova Store.

Benefits of Membership include:

Family Membership

Family membership has the same benefits as Individual Membership and covers the same time period but offers a reduced fee for others in the same family to become members. The first Family member (Primary Family Member) pays the full $50.00 fee with each subsequent family member paying $25.00 for the same benefits. The VADA/Nova Show Pass is designed to encourage those individuals who wish to participate in VADA/Nova Schooling Shows and qualify for the VADA/Nova Schooling Show Championship without having to pay for full membership

Show Pass (non-members)

The VADA/Nova Show Pass is designed to encourage those individuals who wish to participate in VADA/Nova Schooling Shows and qualify for the VADA/Nova Schooling Show Championship without having to pay for full membership. Show Pass holders are not members.

Volunteer Program

We encourage all of our members (and anyone else who is willing to help) to participate in our activities as volunteers. Without volunteers, we could not do all the wonderful events we have. Learn more about the volunteer program here.
