If you have shown at the gold or platinum level in 2023, you or your horse may be eligible for the dressage recognition program and earn a dressage medal and/or rider achievement pin.

Are you registered?

Simply check either the horse or rider results and look for the dressage recognition program icon. Note registration is lifetime and remains with the horse even if it changes ownership.

Not registered? No problem. Anyone from any discipline background can register for the program. Not sure you’ll earn the scores this year? You can register up to 48 hrs before you submit your scores. Simply go to the Dressage-Achievement Program Registration

Collect Scores

Please review the criteria for the various dressage recognition program categories found on the dressage recognition page of the Equestrian Canada website
