2019  USDF / NEDA "L" program

USDF "L” Program to be Hosted by NEDA

The ever popular USDF “L” program will again be hosted by NEDA, starting in October of 2019. Part I, three lecture and practice judging weekends, can be attended by anyone, but would be of most interest to potential dressage judges, dressage riders, trainers, instructors as well as those just curious about how dressage is judged. The program also serves as continuing education for “L” graduates and USEF licensed dressage judges.

Thirty people can be accepted as Participants and another 40 as Auditors. Participants are required to attend all three Part I weekends, a criteria for Part II, which involves evaluation and testing. Auditors may attend just one day up to all days of the program. Future articles in the TIP and on the NEDA website and Facebook pages will provide more details. Application forms for both Part I and Part II Participants and Auditors will be available about January 1, 2019.

For full details about the program see below.
