USDF GMO Card for USDF competitions
The education of our Amateur members (Junior, Young Rider and Adult) is very important to NODA as riders, horse owners, and possible future trainers.
NODA will offer a total for four (4) scholarships: Two (2) Junior/Young Rider Scholarships, and Two (2) Adult Amateur Scholarships. An amateur member may be awarded a scholarship once every three years.
Scholarship funds may not be applied to show fees, board bills, or leasing costs. Application Deadline: October 1
Scholarships may be used for any educational dressage event. This includes all dressage clinics, symposiums, lessons, and other dressage education events.
Annual Deadline October 1
Limited to NODA Professional Members and Amateur Members who are USEF "professtionals"
(Example: licensed TD or Judge)
Do you attend education seminars,
*Please note that grants may not be used for riding clinics.
The USDF has 100+ affiliated dressage clubs, or Group Member Organizations (GMOs), across the United States and Canada. These clubs submit their membership rosters to the USDF office. By joining your local GMO, you automatically become a group member (GM) of USDF. To learn more about how your group membership contributes to your GMOs voting strength at the Board of Governors meeting, click here.
USDF Group Member Membership Cards are mailed by USDF. You get a USDF Group Membership Card unless you are a current USDF PM (Participating Member), or unless you are already a member of some other GMO. You only get one card from the USDF. Group Membership (GM) FAQs from USDF may be found at www.usdf.org/faqs/gmo.asp#7. Your USDF number will be the same whether you have a Participating Membership (PM) or a Group Membership (GM) because once you are assigned a USDF number, it does not change. (NOTE: These GMO member cards are acceptable proof of USDF Membership at USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized shows. The USEF membership card, which you must also present at recognized competitions, can also be found on the USDF web site.
NODA Membership cards are available only if requested, because the online membership roster is used as verification of membership for all NODA activities. If you would like a hardcopy NODA membership card, please contact Fran Cverna, Membership Chair, at Membership@nodarider.org or 440-834-1774.
