The 2019 ENYDCTA team will consist of 4 riders with one reserve rider. These riders must be ENYDCTA members and will be chosen based upon an average of scores and a short essay. The 4 team riders will each receive a $100 scholarship to be used how they deem fit for the show (i.e. entries, trailering, etc.), a team saddle pad for the duration of the show and the ENYDCTA banner to be used in the parade of teams. If you have any questions please contact Karry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each rider must submit:
2 scores(Minimum of 57%) from the level which the rider will be entering at D4K
1 score from a Dressage Seat Equitation class
A short(3 to 4 paragraph) essay on why you would like to represent ENYDCTA and what you feel you will gain from the experience
The 2 traditional test scores will be averaged, riders with the highest average will be chosen for the team. In the event of a tie the Equitation score will be used as the determining factor. Should the tie still not be broken, the rider will be chosen by their essay.
*Scores must be submitted with a judges signature(i.e. a scan of the test or photo of the Equitation score sheet) or from usdfscores.com if earned at a recognized show. The test must be judged by at least an "L" judge. Scores from 2018 may be submitted.
Scores and essay must be emailed to email@example.com no later than June 3rd. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Riders will be notified of their selection status no later than June 5th.
