In conjunction with USDF, Dover Saddlery designed a program to acknowledge the accomplishments of the adult amateur rider, who typically balance the demands of career and family with their desire to ride and compete. The competitor with the highest score in a Second Level Adult Amateur class/division at a participating USA Equestrian/USDF recognized competition is awarded a handcrafted pewter USDF/Dover Adult Amateur medal.

The word dressage (rhymes with massage) is derived from a French term meaning training. It is not only a method of schooling, but also an Olympic competitive equestrian sport. Dressage is a discipline and competitive sport accessible to all horses and riders.
