The next generation of judges in the Midwest needs your help!
- For Session B, NDA needs 9 riders: 3 riders at Training Level, 3 Riders for First Level and 3 Riders at Second level. Session B of the L program will again emphasize gaits, but also movements. Demo Riders will demonstrate the entirety of one test, and in some cases, individual movements for the benefit of L program participants. Stalls will be provided by NDA at the Lancaster Event Center. We will be using Pavilion 3, where a full sized dressage arena will be set up.
- Demonstration Riders ARE NOT expected to stay over night at the Lancaster Event Center and WILL have ample time to school their horses in the morning prior to the arrival of participants.
- Training and first level work will be done on Saturday, and all of second level is to be done on Sunday. Riders wanting to participate as 2nd level riders should have their horses conditioned to ride two tests, and be very proficient in all the movements of 2nd level.
Adult Amateurs, Juniors and professionals are all welcome to participate. A range of breeds of horses with different strengths and weaknesses are also welcome. Riding helmet, boots and a well put together clinic outfit is the expected turnout for the all demo riders.
NDA will keep a list of “alternates” at each level in case of unforeseen circumstances which may prevent riders and horses from being able to participate at Session B. If you are an alternate, you will be notified of this status, please do keep your schedule clear to fill in as necessary.
