### General Information

The TVDCTA offers several year end awards for eligible members. Division champion and reserve champions are awarded at each dressage and CT level for JR/YR, AA, and Open divisions. Riders must be current members and also must complete at least four volunteer hours in order to be eligible for year end rider awards.

Dressage Awards

Awards will be given to the eligible riders with the highest calculated score. Each rider’s score will be calculated as the average of all their scores from 2015 TVDCTA shows for a given level plus one point for each test ridden. Please see below for an example score calculation. Riders must be current members at the time scores were earned. Scores earned before membership renewal will not be counted towards year end score calculations.
