Graded Dressage Registration Card Validation

This message is to inform all those who haven't sent their Graded Dressage Card in to me for validation for the coming season, that if you don't before September 1st, there is a $10.00 late validation fee applied.

You need to send me your card, along with a stamped self addressed envelope before September 1st to avoid having to pay the late penalty fee.

Your card has to be validated by me every year, whether you have competed the previous season or not, if your card isn't current, secretaries are unable to accept your entry for any Graded Dressage Competition.
