Mandatory Entry & Show Requirements

PROOF OF NEGATIVE COGGINS TEST (EIA) is Required with Show Entry    This safeguards the safety and well being of horses at the shows. When you have your horse's Coggins test done, be sure the horse's registered USEF name is clearly marked. Do not use your horse’s "barn name."      USEF Rule GR907.4 includes the following statement: “For Dressage Competitions, any documentation such as negative EIA certification that is required for entry to a competition must list the same horse name and description as is listed on the entry blank and on the USEF horse identification or recording documents.” 

NODA Schooling Shows require ALL MOUNTED RIDERS (competitors and non-competitors) to wear approved ASTM/SEI Helmets regardless of competition level as per USEF Rule DR120.6 and in compliance with  USEF GR801.

Issued at Show Office check-in.  All competitors must have a Show Number BEFORE entering warm-up areas

ENTRIES & REQUIRED SIGNATURES:  Rider, Owner, and Trainer signatures are required on Entry Forms before you can receive your entry number to compete.   (Trainer signature needed only if they are riding your horse).  Parents need to sign the Entry for  minors.   Three ways to submit signed entry forms: 
  Follow your online entry confirmation e-mail instructions to download, sign, and submit signed entry form
(2)   E-mail signed entry form to Niki at, or
(3)   Bring signed entry form to show and submit it at show office check-in

                                                       2018 Ride Times Scheduling Changes

All shows will begin with large ring (20x60) tests. 
Highest level tests will be followed by lower level tests.  When the large ring tests are complete, we will change to the small ring and tests.  When cross entering divisions, it is possible competitors will ride their higher level test first.  

Why did we implement this change?   
Our judges have been asking us to organize the show schedule so upper level tests are in the morning when the judges and scribes are more "fresh".  Upper level tests are more involved and take more concentration than the Introductory level tests.   Also upper level tests require longer warm-up time.  Competitors have asked for this schedule change to enable them to ride in the morning before it gets too hot.

Ride Times & Show Notes   
Ride times and show notes are usually posted by Wednesday
