2023 Education Awards

In keeping with our educational charter and focus, the CAWDA Board will offer a special perpetual Education trophy for professional, amateur and youth members.

Youth and Amateur members may attend a Western Dressage or other equine-related educational event, such as a clinic, seminar, Train The Trainers™ program, or a judges’ seminar as a participant. Auditing may be accepted provided the attendee can show proof of attending the event. Participation and auditing will be subject to verification with the event organizer.

Professional members may attend a Western Dressage or other equine-related educational event (as described above) or may teach or present a Western Dressage or other equine-related educational event such as a clinic or seminar. Teaching riding lessons or training (outside of a clinic or seminar) does not count for professional qualification.

CAWDA Mentor activities will also count toward the qualifying educational event.

Refer to the CAWDA Rulebook, Education Awards Section, for complete rules and information at

Enter your qualifying event below and upload a scanned receipt, ticket, event flyer or other proof of attendance.

Note for trophy seekers – CAWDA will retain the Perpetual trophy to be displayed at CAWDA events whenever possible. An engraved nameplate will be put on the perpetual trophy with the winning rider's name. Winners will receive a plaque or award (to keep forever).

Good Luck & Happy Learning!
