U.S. Dressage Federation e-Membership Educational Program

Friday, April 15, 2011

The United States Dressage Federation's USDF e-Membership is an online educational membership featuring e-TRAK, an online center that provides unlimited access to a searchable database of articles and videos on equine healthcare, training, and more. In addition to e-TRAK, e-Members are able to access the online USDF Connection, the USDF's member-only magazine, and enjoy discounted memberships with USDF's many educational partners. USDF e-Membership also includes the member discount rate at USDF live educational events and eligibility to earn USDF University Program credit through online and live participation.

The cost of an adult e-Membership is $35/year and the cost of a youth e-Membership is $10/year. In addition to the wealth of education provided through this membership, e-Members will also receive a discount when shopping in the USDF online store, which offers a large collection of books and videos.

"In order to further our primary mission of education, we felt it was imperative that we offer an affordable membership that can provide anyone, even non-riders, with a link to our community and the educational resources we and our partners can provide," says program senior director Cindy Vimont. "In this way we can expand our reach to include all horse enthusiasts who are interested in enhancing their learning experience through dressage education."

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of dressage.
