The USDF Dressage Finals Awards

Each year, USDF sponsors The US Dressage Finals, a prestigious Level 5 competition for horses and riders that have qualified at one of the USEF/USDF Regional Finals held throughout the country. Each November, top qualifiers from across the country compete in this national head-to-head championship that showcases competitors in adult amateur and open divisions, at Training Level through Grand Prix.

AHS sponsors and provides four awards for their members and horses who compete: highest scoring at the USEF Levels, and highest scoring at the FEI Levels, in both the Open and Adult Amateur categories.

Typically, award winners are encouraged to pick up their awards at the AHS Annual Meeting to acknowledge their US Dressage Finals success in person along with our other year-end winners. However, any winners who don’t attend our Annual Meeting get their trophies mailed to them after the meeting.

It's important to note that owners must declare their registry and become a member with both the USDF and AHS BEFORE the Finals begin. (For USDF, this declaration must be done in addition to the All-Breeds Awards declaration.)
