CDI stands for Concours de Dressage International (International Dressage Event) and is recognized by the world governing body of equestrian sports, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (F.E.I.).
The event is run entirely under international rules and regulations for equestrian sports, veterinary conditions and international dressage events. As a result, several matters are handled differently when compared with most competitions organized under national rules.

CDI Frequently Asked Questions
Riders have to present their horses at the "trot-up" the day before the event. This is when one or more members of the "Ground Jury" (officiating judges) and the Veterinary Delegate "identify" participating horses against their passports or other official identification papers and check their general soundness, or fitness to compete.
The "draw", i.e. the determination of when individual horse/rider combinations will actually start in a competition, is made only the evening before, rather than after entries have closed. This adds to the tension of the event (mainly for the riders) and, of course, makes it impossible to show individual starting times in advance of the show.
Permission to Compete
Equestrian Canada requires all athlete/horse combinations wishing to compete in a CDI to complete and submit a Permission to Compete / FEI Registration form.
As this is a CDI in Canada no threshold scores are required.
