CDS San Diego Rated Show Circuit

What Does it Mean to Nominate?
CDS San Diego sponsors a circuit of recognized (by USEF/USDF/CDS) dressage shows. We track riders' scores and give out great awards at the end of the circuit year, usually at an Awards Banquet. But we don't track everyone's scores--only the scores of those riders who have indicated they would like to be eligible for awards. This is completely separate from any nominations you may have signed up for with California Dressage Society. You can let us know you would like us to track your scores by "nominating" yourself and your horse, and by paying a small nominating fee. Don't miss out on the happy! Nominate yourself and your horse on our website today! It's easy!
There are four shows currently planned for the 2022 Rated Shows circuit:
Desert Dressage I Spooktacular, CDS San Diego Spring Forward, Spring Benefit Show and CDI 3, and CDS San Diego Cheers to Summer.
Must be a CDS member
Must pay a nomination fee of $25 (per horse/rider combination)
Minimum of 3 scores over 60% required
Your final score is the average of your highest 3 scores for the circuit at the level(s) at which you are competing
Awards for Champions, Reserve Champions, and 3rd place in each Division (AA, Open, Jr/YR)
Training - 4th Level
FEI PSG - Grand Prix Level
Freestyle scores and USEF Test of Choice scores are not counted for the circuit
Whether you are an adult amateur, an open rider, or a junior/young rider, nominating yourself and your horse is a fun way to participate in your San Diego chapter! If you have ANY questions about nominations, contact the chapter.
Scores are tracked forward from the date of nomination. Scores from the Desert Dressage I Spooktacular show in October 2021 will be included for awards as long as the rider nominates by the weekend of the CDS San Diego Spring Forward show.
