Year-End Awards


2024 LVDA Schooling Show Series Year-End Awards

We heard you, LVDA Members, Year-End Awards have gotten complicated 

So, we're trying something completely new this year:  

2024 LVDA Schooling Show Series Year-End Awards


LVDA Schooling Dressage Show Series: it's this simple

School Horse Division

Additionally, if you ride a School Horse (must be used in lessons and no more than a half-lease to rider), we now have a separate division for you, requiring only two LVDA schooling shows and no "highest test" requirement. The School Horse Awards also have no application process: scores and placings will be automatically calculated on our Year-End Award spreadsheet.  

USDF Recognized Show Division

USDF Recognized Show riders can compete for Year-End Awards in the USDF Division: those riders will need to apply for awards by sending in a copy of their USDF Show Record (details below). 

Achievement Awards and Dressage Seat Equitation Medals

Achievement Awards, Rider Achievement Awards, and Dressage Seat Equitation Medals have minor modifications to their qualifications, please see below.

Please note: once a horse and rider pair have been awarded a YEA Champion they are no longer eligible for YEA at that level. 

Questions? Please direct them to Chris Dickenson, thank you!
