- There are three of them - one for each region: North, Central, South.
- You can choose which regional show you'd like to enter, and you don't have to declare before the scores are earned.
- You need to earn three qualifying scores to be eligible to participate in the RAAC. The scores must be earned at CDS shows (or CDS/USDF shows).
- There is an honor round where horse and rider teams through 10th place (?) receive lovely ribbons. First place teams earn neck ribbons and a cooler (I have two!!!) while second place gets a leather halter with an engraved cheek plate.
Even though I live in the central region, I'll be showing in the Southern RAAC. The Central RAAC was too early in the year, and it was quite a ways north. Southern RAAC is just over 100 miles from here, and Chemaine will be there. I also have several friends who will be at the Southern RAAC, so it was an easy choice. Southern RAAC is being held at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center (LAEC).
Wish us luck, and I'll see you all on Monday!
