USEF/USDF Dressage Seat Medal Program

The USEF/USDF Dressage Seat Medal Program, for riders ages 18 and under, celebrates excellence in equitation and strives to develop a solid foundation for future success in the dressage arena. Riders wishing to qualify for the USEF Dressage Seat Medal Finals must compete in the USDF Dressage Seat Medal Semi-Finals held at the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championships. To qualify for the USDF Dressage Seat Medal Semi-Finals, a competitor must earn a qualifying score of 70% or above in any eligible Dressage Seat Equitation class (except walk/trot) held at a USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized dressage competition during the qualifying period or by qualifying for the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional Championships. The top two placing riders in the Semi-Finals are automatically invited to the Finals.
