Teams: Each team will consist of 3-4 riders at any level, and a Stable Manager. Each team must have a chaperone (21 or older, chaperones may also be volunteers). Senior competitors (18 and up) do not require a chaperone. Teams will be split into Junior and Senior divisions as we are able. IF any competitor is over 18, the team will be competing as a senior team. If a club does not have a complete team, the rally secretary will combine them with members from another club. Dressage and Western Dressage competitors can be on the same team

Fees: Entry fee per rider is $220, Stable managers $30

Attire: Attire guidelines can be found in the 2023 Dressage Rulebook and the 2023 Western Dressage Rulebook. If you have Competition Attire, we encourage you to turn out in your "show clothes".
