Please note that 2023 ASDS Memberships expire November 30, 2023.
ASDS provides its membership with opportunities to cultivate and develop skills in dressage through:
In-Person USDF/USEF-Recognized Horse Shows
We offer 8 dressage shows each year that are sanctioned by USEF and recognized by USDF. We contract at least 4 different "R" or “S” rated judges who fly in and often stay to clinic after the shows.
Virtual Horse Shows
We offer 4 virtual horse shows to allow competitors to practice their skills before entering in-person shows.
We will offer at least one schooling show each year starting in 2022.
We stay busy with our shows and clinics and end our year with a celebration at our annual awards banquet. We are a small group with big ambitions.
You can submit a membership application form with check by mail (see instructions on form) or submit signed application by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and make your payment using the appropriate PayPal button, below. PayPal payments will incur a small additional fee to cover expenses.
ASDS Membership (includes USDF Group Membership)
Becoming a member of ASDS automatically includes also becoming a USDF Group Member. A USDF membership (either a Group Membership or a Participating Membership) is required to participate in recognized shows, except for introductory and opportunity classes, and is also required to qualify for ASDS year-end awards.
USEF Membership and SafeSport Training
If you plan to participate in recognized shows this year, don't forget to also renew your USEF membership and, if you are 18 or older, complete the Mandatory SafeSport Training (or refresher). If you are a rider, owner, trainer, or coach, and are 18 years or older (or will turn 18 before your next show), you are now required by USEF to complete the SafeSport Training in order to participate in recognized shows.
USDF Participating Membership (USDF PM)
If you'd like to qualify for national USDF year-end awards, you should also make sure to become a USDF Participating Member.
Horse membership requirements for participating in USDF/USEF-recognized shows, other than in introductory and opportunity classes, include a USDF Horse ID or USDF Lifetime Registration, and, to qualify for ASDS year-end awards, a horse must have an ASDS horse membership (either annual or lifetime).
