In 2004 we will have three divisions of riders: (1) FEI Junior, Pony and Young Rider; (2) Pony Club and CADORA, and (3) General. First year riders will compete at the general level. Intermediate level riders who belong to Pony Club will attend Pony Club shows, and the non pony club riders will compete at CADORA and other non-Pony Club shows.
