Awards Reminder - Deadline is this month!
Remember to submit your scores (postmarked) by October 31. The prizes from years’ past have been awesome, and the awards banquet has been great fun. So don’t miss getting the award you earned this year because you missed the submission deadline.
WDCTA Awards Program Update:
Please note the following changes for our awards program passed by the WDCTA State Board:
First, because our awards year left out the months of November and December, and members are competing in warmer climates and the regional and national championships are held later in the year, members were not always able to submit scores from November and December. Now you can.
- For the 2014 awards program only, scores earned in November and December 2013 may be used for levels that the rider had already signed up for the 2014 show year.
- For 2015 and beyond, the awards program year will change to Dec. 1 through Nov. 30.
To help members make sure they have the available awards forms, the State Board has required that the new awards forms for the following year must be available by Nov 15. (For example, for 2015 awards year, the awards chair will have the awards forms updated and available by Nov. 15, 2014.)
All other awards sign-up rules will remain the same, including the membership requirement.
USDF Instructor Certification Program - Request for Demo Horses & Riders
We are seeking applications for demo horses & riders for the Pre Certification, on November 22-23. We need horses for both Saturday and Sunday. Horses should be quiet, safe, sound, accept unfamiliar people handling it, fit for work, and schooling at least First Level.
The State Board has unanimously approved the following helmet policy (Feb 2011 State Board Minutes):
At any WDCTA event, State or Chapter sponsored, all riders must wear an ASTM/SEI approved helmet at all times while mounted.
