Amateurs and Youth Riders receive NAWD Amateur & Youth Western Dressage Stars each time they turn in 3 scores of 65% or greater. NAWD recognizes and rewards riders for their accomplishments, big and small!
Scores may be earned at any Western Dressage show. Scores earned by submitting videos for scoring under the virtual test system may also be used to earn stars.
A specially designed Cowboy Dressage™ Star will be granted to Amateurs that receive scores of 65% or more in Cowboy Dressage when judged by a judge that has been approved by the Cowboy Dressage World Team.
Amateurs may receive an unlimited number of Western Dressage stars, but only one star per horse per level.
Each star comes with a listing on the website and a digital star they can share to let the world know about their Western Dressage accomplishments.
The NAWD Stars program is currently FREE and open to all riders, regardless of affiliation.
To receive your stars, please send proof in the form of test sheets or links to online scores to Nawdstars@gmail.com. Retroactive scores may also be used. (Y) designates youth rider at time of receipt of the Star.
