For Immediate Release
Tuesday, May 23, 2006

In an effort to serve USDF members more efficiently and in response to members' ongoing requests for online registration capability, USDF now offers the convenience of online auditor pre-registration for Adult and FEI Jr/YR clinics, according to Sheila Forbes Stovall, USDF Director of Programs.

"Online clinic pre-registration for those using a credit card means they will now receive immediate verification of payment and registration," Stovall explained. "Prior to this, it took at least 24 hours via email to receive registration confirmation."

USDF members and dressage enthusiasts who want to pre-register for an Adult or FEI Jr/YR Clinic, can go to and register quickly and securely. Previously, all clinic attendees had to pre-register either by mail or fax, and those who prefer this method may still do so. Those who want to pay by check will still need to mail in their registration.  Walk-in registration at the clinics is also available.

Information technology designers created the online registration tool to be user-friendly, according to William Adams, USDF Director of IT. It saves auditors the time and hassle of printing, mailing or faxing forms to USDF.

"We are happy to be able to offer our membership the service they've requested," Stovall said. "People no longer have to worry about faxing or mailing credit card information into us. In addition, members who register online will automatically receive USDF university credit for the clinics they attend, offering yet another incentive to give this service a try." Fee for university credit is typically $5 per clinic.
