Dressage Series 2019-2020 Show Season.
Important notice (3-16-2020): "Unfortunately, we have to cancel this weekend's dressage events.
We follow the USEF guidelines, and today they cancelled all their events for the next 30 days and strongly urged all coordinators to do the same.
Even if our group is small enough to manage holding a show with reasonable safety precautions it would not set a good example.
Thank you for your understanding.
JHA Dressage Director"
Welcome to the JHA Dressage! Jupiter Horsemen’s offers a well-organized, professional but relaxed place to show before outstanding licensed judges each month. We offer classes from Introductory Level through 4th Level. Prix St George and higher can be arranged upon request.
Each class will be awarded with ribbons for 1st through 6th place. Year-end trophies and prizes will be awarded through sixth place in each division for horse/rider combinations who compete in at least four of our six shows during the season.
Entries can be filled out and emailed to JHADressageShow@gmail.com FIVE DAYS before the show, and payment can be made through our website via paypal. When sending an entry with a check by USPS please allow TEN DAYS to ensure a timely delivery and to avoid late fees. Late entries will be accepted at the discretion of the Dressage Director. Scratches after the closing date are non-refundable.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that you submit a copy of your current negative Coggins report. Failure to provide proof of negative Coggins before the show will result in elimination without a refund.
Training Level through 4th Level tests can be found on the USEF website Introductory and Freestyle tests can be found on the USDF website. All Western Dressage Tests will be from WDAA website. All FEI levels can be found here FEI website.
Braiding and jackets are encouraged, but always optional. (Especially when it’s hot!) For complete rules and guidelines please consult the Dressage Division of the USEF rulebook. However, if you have a special request, please contact the Dressage Director before the show.
Our goal is to support riders who want to participate in a dressage competition without the pressure of a large USEF-recognized show. Our venue is ideal for building the confidence of a new rider, putting miles on a green horse, and allowing the every-day rider to come do dressage without the pressure and expense of going to a recognized show! We also try to provide opportunities for learning throughout the year by way of clinics and events. To see if anything fun is coming up soon, go cruise around our facebook page.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you might have.
-Bethany (DRESSAGE SHOW COORDINATOR)
To be eligible for year-end awards, a horse/rider combination at each level needed to compete at two of our three shows this season and earn at least one score from the highest test of that level.
We always need volunteers to help set up the ring the afternoon before the show, help with ring steward and score running. So if you can't ride, please contact me to volunteer and we will find a job for you! Students receive community service and a shot at our college scholarships!
OFFICE FEE: $10
BRIDLE FEE: $2 (REFUNDABLE)
