Performance Awards


The Performance Awards Schemes gives members the opportunity to accumulate points at each outing.  Points are recorded on a master score card which is included with your membership pack. At the end of the membership year these marks are summed up and our exquisite rosettes are posted to the winners.

  • All paid up members are eligible to take part. 

  • Sections:  In Hand Showing & Ridden Showing. 

  • Entry Fee is included within your membership of just £20 which includes both in hand and ridden classes. 

The Competition runs from 1st November to 31st October in any year and is open to all paid up members.  In order to qualify for points, all horses and ponies must be ridden by paid-up members of CDSGB.  Points are also gained by competing in live shows (photographic shows are not acceptable).  In the event of equality of points, the higher number of first places will be the decider.  

  • All unplaced entries will receive a rosette which may be collected at the show or posted at cost. 

The Concours d'Elegance Performance Awards scheme aims to encourage members to ride in Concours classes in any shows holding Concours d'Elegance classes whether affiliated to the CDSGB or not. 

Performance Points Rules and Points Cards are included within your membership. Please email a copy of your completed Points card to
