CVDA ANIMAL WELFARE STATEMENT

The rules pertaining to dressage competition prohibit the use of appliances, devices, and drugs. Instead, the emphasis is on progressive training and a cooperative partnership between horse and rider. As part of its mission, CVDA offers educational programs which explore and demonstrate classical and humane training methods.

CVDA RETURNED CHECK POLICY

Any returned check will incur an additional $40 fee.  The person is then not eligible to participate in any CVDA activities until the indebtedness has been paid in full with a bank/cashier’s check.  Once the indebtedness has been cleared, payment for any future activity must be paid with a bank/cashier’s check.

CVDA PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR POLICY

At any Central Vermont Dressage Association  (CVDA) event, it is compulsory that all riders mounted at any time or anywhere on the competition/event showgrounds, competing at any level, wear properly fitted protective headgear which meets or exceeds current applicable ASTM/SEI (American Society for Testing and Materials/Safety Equipment Institute) standards for equestrian use and carries the SEI tag “Protective Headgear,” with chin strap secured.

For riders under 18 years of age, it is the responsibility of the parent, guardian or trainer to insure that the protective headgear worn complies with appropriate safety standards for protective headgear intended for equestrian use, and is properly fitted and in good condition. 
Riders over age 18 are responsible for their protective headgear complying with the standards.
CVDA and the facility hosting the CVDA event are not responsible for checking equestrian helmets for such compliance.

Any rider without protective headgear will immediately be prohibited from further participation in the CVDA event until such headgear is properly in place and/or, at CVDA’s sole discretion, may be prohibited from participating further in the CVDA event.

CVDA and the host facility make no representation or warranty, express or implied, about any protective headgear/equestrian helmet, and cautions riders that death or serious injury may result despite wearing such protective headgear as all equestrian sports involve inherent dangerous risk and as no helmet can protect against all foreseeable injuries.

Central Vermont Dressage Association, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
