Shows are held bi-weekly every summer beginning in May. Dressage tests offered include USDF Introductory through Second Level, as well as, USEA eventing tests, and Western Dressage tests. Information, guidelines, and tests for Western Dressage are available. Year-end awards are offered at BCHP for the TED series. TED shows are recognized by ESDCTA for their year-end awards. These afternoon/evening mid-week shows offer a format unique for dressage shows: on-site registration. This is a very popular show series; pre-registration is not required, however, calling ahead to reserve your time is recommended. Tests are run in multiple rings from 2:30 to 8:00 PM and registration begins at 1:30pmYear End Award Application Form Last updated: 01/27/2017
Several schooling shows are offered in addition to the Tuesday Evening Dressage series. Tests include Introductory through Fourth level and also Musical Freestyle Quadrilles and Pas de Deux. These shows also offer a "Fix a Test" where the competitor rides the test once, then the judge critiques the test before the competitor rides the test for a second time. “Fix a Tests” are a great training tool!
