Continuing Education in Dressage Judging Program
The Continuing Education in Dressage Judging Program was developed by the USDF Judges Committee to provide continuing education opportunities, on a regional level, for USDF L Graduates and those enrolled in the USDF L Education Program.
Licensed Judges are encouraged to attend, however these clinics do not meet the USEF requirement for Licensed Judge education.
These programs are hosted on a regional level through a Group Member Organization (GMO), USDF region or other USDF approved organization. While each USDF region has the flexibility to schedule continuing education programs in a manner that fits the needs of the USDF L Program graduates and enrollees within that region, the USDF Judges Committee has outlined a number of examples of appropriate types of continuing education programs
Traditional riding clinics, in which an instructor works with one individual and participants may only observe the instruction, are not eligible; the instruction must actively involve and/or be directed at the participants and audience.
Grants are available for this USDF education program. The Continuing Education in Dressage Judging Program and organizers must meet grant requirements in order to be eligible to receive the grant. The grant requirements and application are available on our forms and documents page.
Grants for this USDF program are funded by The Dressage Foundation's Edgar Hotz Judges’ Fund.
