All the organizations & memberships I need to show yearling & 2yr old
Can someone please tell me what organizations I need to join and memberships needed to show both my yearling and 2 yr old. I'm thinking FEH event classes, dressage breeding classes, and local shows? What do I need to join as well to show them? I am looking to expose them to the show atmosphere at a young age and enjoy the process as well.
I am a member of USEA, USEF
Both horses registered with USEA, USEF
Sooooo USDF? Life or reg number?
VADA/NOVA? Just horses? Me too?
This starts getting complicated.
Are there RPSI breed shows? Others I should consider? I live in Leesburg VA.
I am guessing that your horses are registered with RPSI since you asked about RPSI breed shows. If you want to do USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding shows, then you will need to join USDF. If you want to qualify for regional championships (and, I think, year-end awards), then you will need a lifetime number for your horses. Some of the sport horse and Warmblood registries have separate breed classes at the DSHB shows. I think I have seen RPSI listed at a few, including possibly Devon, but I can't remember for sure.
I don't know anything about FEH event classes or VADA/NOVA, so I will leave that for someone else to answer. :-)
PS-Please excuse any typos. I am sending this from my phone.
If you join VADA/Nova prior to USDF (that one can be done via computer quickly quickly), you'll get a big discount on your own USDF membership fee. VADA/Nova gives you good news, but not a requirement to show USDF. You don't need to join CDCTA to show USEA.
