IDCTA Schooling Show Series General Information

IDCTA is pleased to join with area stables to present the IDCTA Schooling Show Series. In general, it will be a reflection of typical USEF/USDF/USEA recognized shows. Our goal is to help all riders feel more comfortable showing and to provide a year-end goal at a local level. If you should decide to show at a recognized show in the future, hopefully you will find this series has prepared you.

Listed in the IDCTA Schooling Show Omnibus are prize lists for all shows offered in the series. Each stable has the right to set their own policies regarding fees, refunds, stabling, warm-up areas, parking, pets, etc.  Read each prize list for details. Each show must offer the basic classes that IDCTA recommends. They may offer additional classes. Show management shall act as the Technical Delegate (TD) and have authority of a TD. A current, negative Coggins is mandatory. Please make copies of the entry form included in the Omnibus. Mail completed entries to the show secretary, not IDCTA.  Refunds will not be issued for any reason after the closing date.

The schooling shows offered in this series are managed by and are the sole responsibility of the respective facility. The IDCTA is not responsible for policing show managers or facilities regarding how to run their shows.  The IDCTA encourages riders to vote with their entry fees at shows which are safe, fun and which offer appropriate learning experiences.  Additionally, the IDCTA encourages riders to volunteer and learn what is involved in managing a show.

If you have questions about the schooling show series, please contact the schooling show coordinator, Cecelia Conway at
