Remember that to show in USDF shows, you must be a member of not only USDF but the USEF too. And if your horse is registered with a breed association, check the USDF website to see if that breed participates in the All Breeds Awards - if so, you'll need to be a member of that breed association to be eligible for those year-end awards. Click on the link for the form to register your horse with USDF for the All Breed Awards.
Clients who join Jen at these shows can get coaching before their classes. See Show Fees and Horse Hauling for details.
The USDF has provided a document that you should read before you start signing up for shows. You can read it here: Dressage Protocols
Jen’s 2018 Proposed USDF Recognized Show Calendar (Jen will likely not do all of these - the list will change as she adds or deletes shows):
These are her current plans, but will be changed as Taffy and Dream deems necessary.
NOTE: days listed are when Jen plans to show her horses, always arriving the day before except for the FL ones, where she can often just haul in
