    Default The Adult Amateurs Initiative

    Just glanced at the Dressage forum and found this (below). Is there anything comparable in US Eventing? There is not in Canada. Seems like a really interesting idea!!

    "If you are on FB please visit the Adult Amateure Dressage Initiative page.

    Mission statement:

    "This page is for the advancement of the Adult Amateur Dressage Rider. Our AIM is to attract USDF and USEF members to this site in order to discuss and develop ideas that we will present, as a united front, to our national organizations to implement FOR US! We are working for greater recognition in the programing for, and funding of, the Adult Amateur Dressage Riders in the USA by the USDF and the USEF. We are lobbying our national organizations for parity in educational programs, funds, grants, transitional classes to rise through USDF and FEI levels, equal access to elite clinics, equal representation as riders in said clinics, and, consequently, in the recognized competitions. As the majority members, and the absolute, ECONOMIC BASE of these oganizations, we are committed to bettering the education, the riding, the training, the competition opportunities, and the overall quality of the American Adult Amateur Dressage Community. We are open to any Adult Amateur Rider, any Professional, Judge, or Licensed Official interested in supporting our Goals."

    Probably best to ask this on the eventing forum.

    It is a great idea though - maybe you can start a Canadian version!
