All you need to know about our upcoming Autumn League: there is that lovely sense of a fresh start and we have several new teams joining us so a brief run down of all the information you'll need to get started, plus offers and discounts.
Autumn League begins on the 26th September, following our usual six shows every two weeks format, culminating in our Finals for both Teams and Individuals. Get the dates in your diary! Feel free to dip in and out of single shows as it suits or aim for our Leagues. Individual Leagues require four shows from a specific class out of the six, including the Final show, whilst Teams are comprised of four combinations, with top three scores to count over four shows. Team members can choose any class or level to contribute to their team scores.
We absolutely love 'match making' rider teams from all over the world, so if you would like to be part of an international team of riders, let us know. It's a wonderful way of making friendships with likeminded people and supporting one another along our dressage journeys. Register your horse/rider combinations here: https://www.onlinedressageinternational.com/product-page/team-league-entry
Registration is a one off small fee and covers the entirety of the Autumn League.
We will also be offering returning teams absolutely FREE team registration entry for this league as a thank you. Codes will be sent directly to your team chat groups soon.
To get started with our first show of the Autumn league: simply check out our schedule on the 'Shows' page, choose your classes, purchase your entry and get practising. You will receive an email from the team where we will take your details: horse and rider combination; the level chosen (if it is a Pick Your Own breed/specialist class), plus whether it is a long or short arena. Breed/Specialist classes with Pick Your Own tests are run as Open classes but may be divided into sections at judge's discretion. For Western, Bareback and Bitless Classes, WDAA tests may be used (specify which one) and for our Freestyle to Music Class, please let us know which affiliated body's requirements you are following so we can prepare your scoresheet for your judge.
For a limited time, we are offering gift cards for our Autumn League at a discount which includes a completely free entry so that is six entries for the price of five and an entire six show league, with eligibility for our Individual (and Team) League prizes, as well as ribbons for every competitor and postage included. Available as a digital or physical gift pack. It's a super way to keep yourself or your barn friends motivated for the series, and great value if you are competing more than one horse! Offer for a limited time only: available until the 30th September, 2022. Grab your voucher here: https://www.onlinedressageinternational.com/product-page/odi-autumn-league-gift-card
Check out our website to find out how to upload your video (click this link: https://www.onlinedressageinternational.com/post/uploading-your-test-video) and if you have any questions at all, please just ask! Videos must be uploaded by midnight on the show deadline, with our show day releasing your results on following Saturday.
As you know the tests you will be riding in advance, you can choose to record your test for a specific show when it suits you (useful if you know you're going to be away or snowed under with work!). Also, it's always useful to record a couple of takes so you have some back ups in reserve.
We follow British Dressage tack rules (unless otherwise specified in show schedule). Our only exception is that wrap boots are permitted. No need for plaiting or show gear: it really is all about the dressage and making competing work for you and your horse.
So here's to making this league even bigger and brighter in our thriving and ever expanding global community! And of course: to following our mantra of 'Train. Compete. Achieve' every step of the way...
Love all the team at Online Dressage International x
