High School Lettering for Dressage Riders

    Did you know that you can earn a high school letter for all of the time and dedication that you put into dressage? The USEF High School Equestrian Athlete program recognizes the accomplishments of young equestrians and encourages their future involvement in the sport. The program is open to all equestrian athletes enrolled in grades 9-12 who are members of USEF or join USEF.

    The program requirements are that you log at least 100 hours of equestrian activity, provide show records for at least three shows though out the year and provide current proof of enrollment in high school. The fee for applying to this program is only $15 per year and you can letter all four years of high school. For more information or to apply, please visit or email
