How  Ride Times are Scheduled 

All shows usually begin at 8:00 AM with the large ring (20x60) tests being held first. NODA and the show committee/ management reserve the right to limit entries, to add, combine or cancel classes, and to make whatever changes may be required by the circumstances of the competition. When the large ring tests are complete, we will change to the small ring and tests. When cross entering divisions, it is possible competitors will ride their higher level test first, as we will try to run higher level tests first before it gets too hot, but there is no guarantee on ride time.

Why did we implement this change?
 Our judges have been asking us to organize the show schedule so upper level tests are in the morning when the judges and scribes are more "fresh". Upper level tests are more involved and take more concentration than the Introductory level tests. Also upper level tests require longer warm-up time. Competitors have asked for this schedule change to enable them to ride in the morning before it gets too hot.

New for 2020 - Professional Incentive Program

We appreciate NODA member professionals and know that without them many riders would not be achieving their goals. We also realize how busy our professionals are and how hard they work. Our goal in establishing this program is to give an incentive to NODA members who are professionals to support NODA shows- both schooling and recognized.
