2021 Schooling Show Prize List

Here is list of just our 2021 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 2021.

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.

These listing also show Partner Shows. Read about the Partner Show Program here.

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.

The FEI has issued new tests for 2021. 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.
