George Williams - Wow

We had a great time at

Justaplain Farm, Cochranville, PA

September 13 & 14, 2014

Several Auditors joined the riders and grooms for the clinic, and had a wonderful time.  We were fortunate to have generally nice weather, after a slightly late arrival on Friday, everything else was right on time.  Some showers on Saturday along with cooler weather, did not dampen our spirits, we warmed right up to it.  All the riders were pleased with their progress, and on some of the younger horses, the improvement was dramatic, one even graduated from "Kindergarten".  (Refering to the article in Dressage Today, August 2014, by George Williams.) 

Plans have been made to have him back again next year for the same weekend.

THANK-YOU to all that attended.

Championship Show info

FCEA Championship classes will be held in conjunction with the October 11 show at SFD.

Championship Classes

  • Eligibility: To be eligible, riders’ membership must be received by FCEA as of October 1st
  • Qualifying: To qualify at a level, the horse and rider combination must have earned a qualifying score of 62% or better, in any test of the level, at any FCEA approved point show.
  • Qualifying period: 1/1/2014 to closing date of championship show.
  • Championship Tests: Intro C, Training 3, First 3, Second 3, Third 3, Fourth 3, FEI TOC.
  • Entry Fee: Regular class entry plus an additional $5 per championship test.
  • Championship Rules: nothing different from regular show rules – readers allowed, whips allowed.
  • Please note, FCEA allows horse and rider combinations to compete and earn scores in two adjacent levels, and as such, they may qualify and show in two Championship classes of their current level of showing.  Example:  if you started the year at Intro, and moved up to Training Level, and then tried First Level, you are no longer eligible at Intro, but, you are eligible at Training and First if you earned the scores to qualify.

Dressage Team Competition

  • Teams of 2-4 horse & rider combinations, will form a team comprised of scores earned at : one test at Introductory Level, Training Level, First Level, and one extra test score at any one of those levels.  One score at each level counts for final points.  A test may only count for scores on one team, but a rider may ride two different tests to count for two different teams.  Riders may ride up to 2 tests (in adjacent levels) to count towards the team score, and they must designate which test(s) will count for their team score(s). 
  • Team names encouraged.
  • Teams may be formed the morning of the show.
  • Entry Fee: $5 per test=$15/$20 per team
  • FCEA Membership: not required
