Riding Schools League

Introduction

This league involves a dressage competition where a DSA Provincial judge travels from Riding school to Riding school Gauteng and judges a prescribed dressage test in an arena. The aim is to encourage participation and interest in dressage with a view to those participants eventually entering the main stream dressage and eventually to graded events. A secondary aim is to make the riding school public aware of the dressage events and encouraging spectators to attend the main stream events.

The added value offer to the riding schools;

 DSA Coach Developer courses in the regions

 DSA Officials such as Judges, Stewards, Scribes, Recorders, Show organiser courses in the regions

 DSA Prelim / Novice riders courses in the regions

 

Eligibility

The competition is open to any rider who takes lessons at the riding school or has a livery or half lease at the riding school or stable yard. There should be at least 6 riders = 12 test entries per show and a maximum of 25 riders = 50 test entries that can be accommodated per show. Riding schools in close proximity may combine for the competition. A riding school may host a maximum of 4 league shows per year.
