USDF Rider Year End Awards Now On Web

USDF Rider Award Winners: Stand and be recognized!

The USDF Web site now features a complete list of USDF Rider Award winners from the program's inception in 1974 to present. In addition to offering recognition for USDF medalists and Freestyle Bar, Master's Challenge, and Qualified Rider recipients, this list, updated daily, will allow 2003 Rider Award winners to confirm their award status and make plans early to attend the 2003 USDF National Convention & Symposium.

This year, USDF is planning two award banquets to honor the many achievements of its members. The "Salute Gala" on Thursday night will feature a ceremony to honor dressage Olympians and USDF's 30th anniversary as well as present the Hall of Fame inductees, Lifetime Achievement Awards, Volunteer of the Year, and GMO Newsletter Awards. On Saturday night, USDF will celebrate the riders (2003 USDF bronze, silver, and gold medal and Musical Freestyle Bar; and Master's Challenge recipients) and the horses (the 2003 Horses of the Year and All Breed program winners) that make our sport great.
