General Information for Starter Horse Division

  • Open to any horse that has never shown in an open class at any Dressage Show.
  • Classes are offered at Walk/Trot (USDF Tests A and B) and Walk/Trot/Canter (USDF Test C and Training Level Test 1).
  • Horse/Rider combinations may qualify for the Championship Show as well as for Year-End Awards at the Starter Horse Level.
  • Horse/Rider Combinations entered in Starter Horse classes may only qualify for Starter Horse awards.
  • Once a starter horse competes in any open class at any dressage competition, it is then ineligible to enter future starter horse classes. Once a year-end championship is won at the starter horse level, the horse then must move up to the next level.
  • Once a horse has shown in an Open Division, the horse is no longer considered a starter.
  • All other requirements are explained in "General Information for Dressage Competitions" and "Rules for Dressage High Score Awards", and will be strictly adhered to.
  • All questions are to be addressed to the High Score Award Chairperson.
