Dressage at Rose Mount
September 7-8, 2019
VADAF annually hosts Dressage at Rose Mount I & II (USDF licensed Dressage competitions) at Rose Mount Farm in Spotyslvania, VA. This is one of the few shows that is actually held as 2 separate competitions per USDF. This allows competitors the opportunity to earn their two required GAIG Qualifying Scores over one weekend. This is also one of the last shows where a competitor can earn their GAIG Qualifying Scores for the current year. Freestyle and pony classes are offered and are often popular with exhibitors. Both shows also offer TIPS awards for our competitors who own thoroughbreds who are registered with The Jockey Club. A large vendor tent draws local vendors and on site catering provides food services.
Spectators are welcome at no charge. All dogs must be leashed at all times.
