CVDA runs very popular schooling shows each season which attract competitors from throughout Vermont and surrounding states. We provide top-level judges, and our entries range from Introductory through Fourth Level.

Introductory Division: This division consists of the 2016 USDF Introductory Tests A, B and C, and provides an opportunity for the horse and/or rider new to dressage to demonstrate elementary skills.  The tests are designed to encourage correct performance and to prepare the horse and/or rider for the transition to the USEF tests. This division is divided into Junior and Senior classes.  Tests ridden in this division are not eligible for Show High Point Awards or Year End High Score Awards.

2. USDF Introductory Test B - JR

Junior, Senior and Open Divisions: Training and First Level Classes will be divided into Junior and Senior Divisions.
