NEW CLASS
For CHAMPIONSHIPS and YEAR END

IaDCTA instituted a modified level of testing for beginner horses and riders. This Intro-to-Intro Level is for IaDCTA members onlyand is not offered to our knowledge by any other club.Introductory Level is comprised of three tests (Intro A, B & C). For Intro to-Intro Level IaDCTA will accept Tests A & B ONLY.Individuals qualifying for Intro-to-Intro Level may submit three of their highest scoring tests from three different shows and two different “L” judges or better with one of those tests being Test B. Individuals riding Intro-to-Intro may also ride Test C but may not include the test in Intro-to-Intro Level. Individuals may not apply for YEAR END AWARDS in both Intro-to-Intro and the regular Intro Level.

GOOD NEWS

For the young and/or inexperienced riders/horses
The IaDCTA voted to add a Walk Trot class to the yearend awards. The tests used for this class will be Intro A and Intro B classes Any rider/horse combination wanting to be eligible for this award will be allowed to ride only the two classes offered. Rider must submit their three rides from two separate judges to qualify for yearend awards by November 1st of that year. If a competitor chooses to ride the Intro level C class they will automatically not be entitled to qualify for the Walk Trot yearend award. However they may be qualified to compete for the regular Intro A, B, & C levels by riding three classes for two different judges with one ride at the highest in the Intro Level (Intro C) to qualify. This applies to yearend awards only it does not apply to individual shows.
