A rider qualifies for state in dressage by receiving two scores of 58% or higher at a dressage show with an L graduate (or higher) or other licensed official listed on the state judges' list. NOTE: L graduates do not have to be listed on the state judges' list; being recognized as able to judge shows by USDF counts toward judging 4H shows.
