For the past four years the Intercollegiate Dressage Association has been ridding to the 2015 USEF dressage tests but the US Equestrian Committee have recently introduced 2019 USEF tests. Effective Dec. 1, 2018 through Nov. 30th, 2022 we are excited to compete to this new test! The continual update to USEF Dressage Tests is to serve as a measure of the horse an rider's schooling and training ability while each level builds upon the preceding level's principles.
The new tests can be found here and we are looking forward to 2019!

The 2014/2015 year was a very successful season! The team placed 5th overall in Region D which includes Ontario, Michigan and Ohio. Throughout the seasons we had riders placing in the top 4 of their divisions. All of our riders had a great season with all the riders placing in the ribbons at the final show of the season. We are all looking forward to a great summer of training and working with our horses!
