Great American Insurance Group/ USDF Regional Championships Qualified Horse & Rider List (Preliminary)

New for 2023: Freestyle classes at each Regional Championship offered level will be divided into two classes (1) Adult Amateur and (2) Open/Junior Young Rider.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can determine whether you have achieved the necessary scores to enter a regional championship by accessing a list of horse/rider combinations who have earned two “qualifying scores.” All “qualifying scores” must be the average of all judges officiating in a designated Great American/USDF qualifying class, at two different USEF/USDF licensed Dressage Competitions and from two different judges, panel of judges, or combination of judges.

Just select a type, level, and region to access the list.

All competitors are personally responsible for knowing and adhering to all USDF and USEF eligibility requirements prior to competing. The requirements for both organizations must be met for both qualifiers and championships. Although USDF uses its best efforts to ensure that the scores are recorded correctly and calculations are accurate, USDF assumes no liability to anyone for any errors, omissions, or changes which result in removal from the Preliminary Qualified Horse/Rider List or being deemed ineligible for championships.

USDF will presume qualified horse/rider combinations will compete in the region in which the rider resides as determined by the address associated with the rider’s membership information on file as of July 1. Riders are NOT required to be a resident of the region to compete in that region’s championship. Riders, who wish to compete at Regional Championships in a region other than their region of residence, must submit a Change of Region Form, and $25 processing fee if done prior to July 1. After July 1, late fees will apply! Questions?

Horses must be entered in qualifying and championship classes under their official recorded names and ownership as specified in USEF GR1102.3, and transfers of ownership or lease registrations must be completed in compliance with USEF rules GR1105 and GR1108 prior to the competition in order for the horse to compete under the name of the new owner or lessee. (USEF DR127.2)
