SPECIAL UPDATE! The GDCTA Pony Awards will use both pony classes and regular classes for eligibility. Now ALL of your scores will count! In keeping with the new guidance from USDF, you can get all of your scores at ONE show. Scores in front of the same judge can count. You still need to ride the top test of the level two times. Please let Janie Pride know if you are competing for The GDCTA Pony Awards that she is sponsoring. You do need a pony card. GO PONIES!
