Breeder of Distinction Award Recipients

USDF Breeder of Distinction awards are based upon scores earned by horses in Dressage Sport Horse Breeding (DSHB), USDF Breeders Championship Series Final, and Materiale classes. These scores are converted to point values, with each award having a minimum requirement of points earned in dressage sport horse breeding (DSHB) and USDF Breeders Championship Series Final classes for the bronze level award; and a minimum requirement of points earned in dressage sport horse breeding (DSHB), materiale, and USDF Breeders Championship Series Final classes for the silver and gold level awards. Additional requirements outlining a minimum number of judges and horses will also apply to each level of the award. Scores earned October 1, 2000, forward are eligible to count towards this award.
