USDF Staatem ment on Animal Welfare The United States Dressage Federation, Inc. (USDF), a feederation of 125 independent organizations throughout the United States with a membership in excess of 30,000 members, supports the concept of ethiical treatment ment of animals. Dressage is a classical method of training horses, basedd upon thee horse’s natural responses, as carried out in a gradual, planned program during which the horse’s athletic abilities are improved in a systematic tic manner err.. As a result, the horse becomes capable, comfortable, and responsive in partnership with the rider without the use of force. Dressage compeetition at various levels of achievement is the ultimate test of the training program to determine whether the desired harmony between horse and riderr has beenn achieved. The rules pertaining to dressage competition prohibit thhe use of artificial appliances, training aids, and drugs, which would force the horse to submit. Instead, the emphasis is upon training and a cooperativve partnerrship with the riderr.. Major competitions are carefully monitored to assure that there is no unnecessary force or harshness displayed. Unlike other horse sports in which horses enter trainingg at a relaatively immature state, dressage training is usually not seriously begun until the horse is three or four.. The top levels of achievement require ffive or moore years of progressive training and it is not unusual to see horses in international competition in their late teens. This, in itself,, places a premium p oon good care and soundness throughout the horse’s life. While supporting the concept of animal welfare in its broadest foorm, the United States Dressage Federation, Inc., also recognizes that it is unrealistic to ascribe human emotions and responses to the horse whhich in its wild state is a creature of flight, living a hard and precarious existence. Under domestication, the horse is assured of ample food, water,, and shelterr,, as a well as protection against infectious diseases and damaging parasites, thus leading a longer and healthier life with a high rate of survival. As an educational organization, USDF has numerous proograms, w which teach people how to pursue the accepted, humane training methods. A program of certifying instructors also emphasizes protecting thee horse’s w welfare in pursuit of dressage training.

Owners/lessees or riders exempt from the NM number requirements are also exempt from paying the USDF NM fee. If there are multiple owners of a horse and all are NMs, only one of the owners must pay the NM fee. If the horse has at least one owner who is a current USDF PM, GM, or BM there is no NM fee assessed. Competition management will be invoiced for all applicable USDF NM fees not received with the USDF post competition paperwork, along with a report listing all USDF NMs. Competition management is then required to submit the NM fees within 30 days to the USDF. An individual with a USDF NM identification number is not eligible for any USDF membership benefits. Once a USDF NM number has been assigned, a USDF NM card can be obtained from the USDF website.

An HID number can be upgraded to a Lifetime Horse Registration (LHR) for a fee of $70. If a horse has a USDF LHR it does not need an HID number. An HID number is a one-time fee that does not need to be renewed. Lifetime Horse Registration (LHR): A horse with an LHR ($95) is eligible for Adequan®/USDF Year-End Awards, and eligible to compete at Great American Insurance Group/USDF Breeders Championship Series Finals and Great American Insurance Group/USDF Regional qualifying and championship classes, assuming requirements for the owner and rider are met.
