Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championship Rule Update!

Effective 4/1/2015: Having won a USEF/USDF Regional Championships three times (in any region over their lifetime), a horse/rider combination may no longer compete in USEF/USDF Regional Championship competition at that or a lower level (Grand Prix excepted), if they received the minimum qualifying score or higher for that division and level in the championship test per USEF DR127.5.

How to Qualify:

To qualify for a Regional Championship, horse/rider combinations must earn a total of two qualifying scores at two different USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized Dressage Competitions, from two different judges. For more information, please become familiar with all of the program rules.

USDF will presume qualified horse/rider combinations will compete in the region in which the rider resides as determined by the address associated with the rider’s membership information on file as of July 1. Riders are NOT required to be a resident of the region to compete in that region’s championship. Riders, who wish to compete at Regional Championships in a region other than their region of residence, must submit a Change of Region Form, at no cost if done prior to July 1.
