The score correction reporting period closes, as of October 15, 2013. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
Although USDF employs best practices to ensure that the scores are recorded correctly and calculations are accurate on the website and elsewhere, USDF assumes no liability to anyone for any errors, omissions or changes.
If you plan on receiving your award at the convention, you must register for the event by going online AND you must also notify USDF award's staff directly that you will be attending in order for USDF to have your award available for you to receive that evening. Only the owner and/or rider will be allowed to accept awards-no exceptions. Please note that the purchase of a banquet ticket is required to attend the Salute Gala and Annual Awards Banquet.
If you plan to attend the awards banquet, you MUST notify the USDF by November 1, 2013. If you do not return the banquet reply form by November 1, 2013 the USDF will ship your awards in December to the address we have on file.
Through the Adequan®/ USDF Year-End Awards Program, USDF recognizes top horses, owners and riders at the Salute Gala and Annual Awards Banquet. Awards for the horse are awarded to the owner of the horse and awards for the rider are awarded to the rider of the horse. The prizes to be awarded include:
Adequan®/USDF Year-End Awards (excluding All-Breeds)
Adequan®/USDF All-Breeds Awards
Certificates of recognition will be available online. USDF/Dover Saddlery Adult Amateur Merit Awards not included.
The Yearbook issue of the USDF Connection will highlight some of the 2013 award winners. Deadline for submitting photos for the annual Yearbook issue of USDF Connection is the first Friday in October for Rider Awards and the last Friday in October for Year-End Awards (including All-Breeds). Due to limited space, only photos from Rider Awards and first placed year-end award recipients from each award category and level or division will be considered.
USDF will ONLY accept digital files for submissions to the USDF Connection Yearbook issue. Any hard copy photos will not be used or returned. The photo release form, an interactive electronic PDF can be filled out on your computer and MUST accompany your photo file in an e-mail sent to email@example.com. Please make sure to save a copy of the PDF file to your computer then attach that file to your e-mail along with your photo file. If the photo was taken by a professional please fill out your portion of the form, save it, and forward it on to the photographer. The photographer will then fill out the rest of the form and send it and the photo to USDF.
