Dressage in the Sierra Show Information

A HUGE thank you to the SNC Board and all the volunteers that helped make Dressage in the Sierra a great show (despite the heat and thunder storms!) We are lucky to have such a fantastic group of people working hard to put on great shows in our area!

We are awarding High Points Awards at each show for Open, AA, an JR/YR.

KWPN-NA will be awarding a High Point Award for the highest scoring KWPN horse at each of our shows. Please contact Stacee if you have a KWPN horse and want to be eligible for this award. You will need to provide a copy of your horses registration papers, and the owner must be a member of KWPN-NA to be eligible for this award (all verified through the KWPN-NA office). It will be awarded after we have all of the scores from the show, Stacee will take a picture of you and your horse with the award for KWPN-NA after the show.

If there is anyone out there with other breeds that would like to have Breed High Point awards at our shows you are encouraged to contact your horse's registry and see what they require. Stacee is happy to help you, however we are leaving it up to the club members to contact their registries.
