Updating / Promotion Clinics

These clinics may be used for certification, promotion and updating to maintain current dressage judges certification requirements as outlined in the Equine Canada Rules for Dressage.

Clinics are also open to auditors, individuals interested in pursuing official certification and anyone interested in learning about the sport of dressage or the role of officials at competitions.


Education Clinics

Education clinics are offered as supplementary to the Updating / Promotion clinics; they can cover a range of relevant material. Auditors are welcome to participate. Contact Dressage Canada if you have a suggestion or request for an Dressage Judges Education clinic topic.
