UDS Bridge to Rated Shows Scholarship

The Utah Dressage Society is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for UDS members that could use some support bridging the gap from schooling/short tour shows to the USEF/USDF/UDS rated shows!

There will be a few more short tour shows coming up in Utah county if you still want to qualify! Also, don’t forget that starting this year the UDS will be doing year-end short tour awards at the annual awards banquet.
