In the championship, they must perform the highest test of their level. 2. The qualifying time period is from October 10, 2018 to October 1, 2019. 3. The qualifying scores can be earned at either recognized or schooling shows, and horse trials. The judge must be at least a USDF “L” graduate for a schooling show to qualify.
Both the Team and Individual Championships include three rides - a schooling show ride Friday, the highest test of the level on Saturday and freestyle on Sunday. If the rider opts to not do the individual championship freestyle ride on Sunday, they may have another schooling ride on Friday. The NRADC promotes a sense of camaraderie and is a fun, challenging weekend that gives recognition and awards to our adult amateurs. It is quickly becoming the go to event of the fall.
