Programs include

  • Schooling Shows

Rule and Eligibility

  • You must be a member of the Central Plains Dressage Society (CPDS) to participate in the program.  Scores earned prior to joining CPDS WILL count as long as the rider is a member by April 1.  After April 1, scores will only count if the rider is a CPDS member.  In other words, you may join in June and still be eligible for year end awards.  But only scores earned after the date you join will be recorded.  We are offering multiple sets of awards.

    • USEF/USDF Recognized Dressage Shows 

    • USEF Recognized Western Dressage Lite Shows

    • Schooling Shows (Includes dressage and western dressage)

  • Scores are earned by rider and a rider may use more than one horse.  Additionally, a horse may be ridden by more than one rider.

  • Awards are based on a median percentage. Scores can be from any test of the level and riding the top test of the level is not required.

  • Scores may only be earned at CPDS shows.  CPDS is offering 6 USEF/USDF shows; 6 USEF Lite Western dressage shows, and many schooling shows.  Click here for a link to the listing of shows.

Breed High Point 

Rules

The highest scoring horse (one ride) from the following breed options will be awarded a 2024 year-end awards high point ribbon at the Annual General Meeting and Awards Celebration tentatively scheduled for the first Saturday in December.

  • The rider must be a CPDS member at the time the score is earned.

  • No breed papers are needed.  This is an honor system

  • A horse may only be registered in one division.  For example, if your horse is ½ QH and ½ Friesian, pick one breed category in which to compete.
