2017 Licensed Show Prize List

The Prize Lists for the 2017 USEF and USDF Licensed Shows are posted below with the calendar entry for each show.

These shows participate in a number of different National and Regional Awards and Championship Programs. Information about all of these programs can be found on this page.

Opportunity classes will be offered at the licensed shows. See the USEF website for additional information on Opportunity Classes.

Every licensed dressage show offers Para Equestrian Test of Choice classes. Please see the Prize Lists for details.

USEF and FEI Eventing tests will be offered at the September licensed show only.

Everything you need to know about the USEF rules is here.

2017 Schooling Show Prize List

Here is list of just our 2017 VADA/Nova Dressage Schooling Shows. This page also has all the rules and forms for our Schooling Shows. Check here also to see changes for 2017.

Schooling show entries open two months before the competition. The specific dates are listed in the calendar. The Schooling Show Entry Form exists as a Fillable PDF and as an HTML form that will mail itself to the show secretary. Find what you need here.  

Notice that the Schooling Show Entry Form now includes our Liability Waiver. Send that in with your entry. We require that the waivers for Juniors be signed by a parent or LEGAL GUARDIAN. We cannot accept waivers signed by coaches or trainers.

If you would like to bring a non-competing horse to one of our schooling shows, please review our Non-Competing Horse Policy first.

Members that participate in our Licensed and Schooling shows may be eligible for VADA/Nova Year End Awards .

Calling all Volunteers!

Without our volunteers, there are no shows. The best way to find out about volunteer opportunities is to read the emails we send out before these events. These are sent from Constant Contact under the name of the event recruiter, which changes from event to event. If in doubt, look at the show prizelist or event flyer and contact the show manager or event contact.

Dressage Tests for 2017

The USEF and USDF have issued new tests for 2015. For your convenience, here are some links to places the current dressage tests are published on-line. I will update the links here as they become available.


The USEF is selling a booklet that contains the USDF and USEF tests. The order form is available here.
