Thursday, July 05, 2007

          Lexington, KY (July 5, 2007) - United States Dressage Federation (USDF) announced today that competitors now have access to a rider score check for the 2007 competition year, available on the USDF Web site.  This new feature allows individuals to track all scores earned during the current competition year, no matter the number of different horses ridden.  A reference tool for our members, this score check is also an acceptable form of score verification that can be submitted with the USDF Rider Award Report Form when applying for the USDF Bronze, Silver, or Gold Rider Medals; Master's Challenge; or USDF Musical Freestyle Bronze, Silver, or Gold Bars.      
          In addition to the current year rider score checks, USDF also offers cumulative, multi-year score checks for both horse and rider.  These can be purchased from the USDF office for a minimal fee.  With these new capabilities, competitors can stay more informed of their progress during the year, or throughout their lives.  To request a multi-year score check, individuals must contact the USDF office at (859) 971-2277 or via e-mail at competitions@usdf.org.  
          For more information on the USDF Rider Award Program, please contact the USDF office at riderawards@usdf.org or visit the USDF Web site.
