Awards Programs and Guidelines
All awards require a minimum score of 60.00 to be eligible.
Freestyles, FEI Young Horse & Equitation classes do not count towards awards.
CVDA Year End Championships
To qualify for a Year End Award (presented at the Annual Meeting and Banquet), the rider must be a CVDA member when the scores are earned. The rider must have competed in at least two CVDA Schooling Shows. Scores must be earned at two different shows, within the same division, by the horse and rider combination. The Year End Award will be presented to the rider with the highest average score based on their top two rides. The same horse and rider team cannot win a Year End Award at more than one level. If a horse and rider team is the winner at more than one level, they will be given the award at the higher level. A rider showing more than one horse may earn more than one award. The Introductory Level may only be received once with the same horse and rider combination.
CVDA Schooling Show High Point Ride
A horse and rider can only win one High Point Award at any show. Riders can win more than one award if they are competing on more than one horse. If a horse and rider team qualify for more than one award, they will be given the award at the higher level.
