Tips for Completing your Entry

We are pleased to have the team from Dressage Experience Show Management secretary our shows! Please review their tips below to easily complete their online entry form.

  • Fill in every blank, even if you don't think it applies or you can't imagine why it's relevant, there is a reason the blank is there, fill it in.
  • Proof of your USEF and USDF Membership cards is required and VERY important! You must send it with every entry.
  • You must include proof of horse registration, and membership cards for EVERYONE listed on the front of your entry form.
  • Membership Requirements for USEF-licensed/USDF recognized Competitions:
    • Owners and riders, including foreign riders and owners who are not residents of the US, wishing to participate in a USEF-Licensed/USDF-recognized competition as a rider or owner/lessee, must have either a USDF Group Membership (GMO), Participating Membership (PM), or have a USDF Non-Member (NM) identification number and pay the USDF Non-Member (NM) fee.
    • Note: USDF Business Members can own horses but cannot compete as riders with their USDF Business Membership.
    • Individuals cannot compete at a USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized competition with a USDF Education Membership.
    • Horses competing at USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized competitions must have either a USDF Horse Identification (HID) number or a USDF Lifetime Horse Registration (LHR). Proper credentials or verification certificates must be presented to the competition secretary.
    • Here is a way to easily print out a membership proof in one or two pages that you can save to your computer and use all season if you use the same horse all season:
      • Go to http://www.eqverification.org/
      • Select "Print verification"
      • Select "Select an affiliate"
      • Select "United States Dressage Federation"
      • Select "Continue"
      • Follow the prompts from there.
    • To add a coach or trainer who is not already the owner or rider select "add rider"
    • When you are finished it will print out a page of membership verification for everyone on your entry.
    • The "Trainer" on your entry form is the person responsible for your horse while it is on the show grounds not the person who gives you lessons.
    • The person who gives you lessons is the "Coach". If your coach will not be at the show, do not list them on the entry form, leave that section blank.
    • You must have a signature on your entry for the Rider/Handler, Trainer, Owner and Coach (if you listed a coach).
  • Make sure you list an emergency contact with a phone number, it is required.
  • If the rider is a minor, they must still sign as the rider. There is a spot for the parent/guardian to sign as well, but BOTH must sign.
  • Remember that by signing the entry form you are signing that you have read and agree to abide by the USEF rulebook and you have read the entire prize list.
  • Many of the pages in each prize list are the same from show to show but you may want to take a quick breeze through them from time to time to make sure you are aware of any recent rule changes. Or specific membership needs for certain competitions you may be hoping to qualify for.
