**ATTENTION EXHIBITORS**All equipment checks will be conducted by USEF Stewards. However, in a video equipment check some tack issues may be unnoticed, due to the limited camera view and the inability to closely examine the tack in question. Please be aware that if your equipment passes the World Show video tack check it is not guaranteed to be legal and that you are advised to have your tack checked before you compete at your next show.

CURRENT WORLD SHOW NEWS:

8-13-2020 – The new 2020 WDAA Western Dressage Online World Championship prizelist is coming soon. The plan is to have an entry phase, possibly a few weeks long, just as you would have in a live show. Then, beginning around Oct 1st video submissions will be accepted. All videos will be viewed by equipment checkers, they will make sure that all submissions meet the criteria on this page https://westerndressageassociation.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ONLINE-SHOW-guidelines-8-2020.pdf.
Once videos have been cleared by the equipment checkers, they will be sent to the judges. All judges listed in the previous prizelist will be officiating, we will add more judges to the panel if entries warrant.
Scores will be available at showsecretary.com once they have been processed by the scorers. https://www.showsecretary.com/Razor/Calendar/Details/832
We are hoping to announce the class, division, Over-all, breed, and special awards by mid-November at the latest. Please stay tuned much more information coming soon.

8-5-2020 The World Show has been canceled. In it’s place will be an Online World Championship Show for one year only. The show will be run in a very similar way to how the current prize list states. Much more information will be available in the next two weeks. WDAA is working hard to make this alternative show a fun and user friendly experience. We are as sad and frustrated as you all are about this cancelation. Stay Tuned!!
