In addition to our Combined Tests on Saturday and our complete Driving Trial on Sunday, here is what in store for 2019

The Confidence Competitor - For the drivers who elect to be Confidence Competitors, there is no restriction on Outside Assistance. It is perfect for those who want the added confidence of being able to have a partner sit on the vehicle with them to help them through the competition day by reminding the driver of the rules, indicating the course routes, reading the dressage tests as they are being driven, keeping an eye out for problems, etc.

 

In other words, the ADS Rules and penalties for Outside Assistance do not apply to Confidence competitors. EXCEPT: Anyone other than the driver handling the whip, reins and brakes in competition, will incur the penalty of elimination for the entry. Rendering assistance to avoid accidents or in an emergency is permitted without penalty. All competitions will be available to drivers electing to compete as Confidence Competitors.

Attention Pleasure Drivers!

You can now participate under Pleasure Rules at our annual event by selecting from the following new offerings on Saturday:

Pleasure Drive Pace - A Pleasure Drive Pace (see ADS Article 260)  has been added for Saturday. The Pace will utilize all or part of the track for the Marathon on Sunday EXCEPT: no Obstacles are to be driven. The Pace may be driven as a stand-alone competition or in combination with the Combined Test (Dressage + Cones)

Watch for these offerings  on the entry form, especially the money saving Combinations!
