Why join CDS?
The California Dressage Society is an organization whose purpose is to foster an interest among horsemen in Dressage. The program of the Society is educational, designed primarily to offer a framework in which individuals can progress with the schooling of themselves and their horses. CDS is an opportunity – to share, to experience, to learn and to contribute.
CDS offers scholarship grants to riders and Chapters; they offer specialized clinics (JR/YR and Adult Amateur clinics with world class clinicians); they offer a wonderful competition specifically for Amateurs (Regional Adult Amateur Competition or RAAC); they have a Medals program, similar to the USDF Medals program just for CDS members; they offer educational and travel grants to the membership; they publish a monthly Newsletter with very reasonable advertising, and a full Calendar every month. AND your membership to CDS gives you a GMO affiliate membership to USDF!
When you add it all up, its a no brainer >;->
