Bringing quality Dressage and Combined training experiences to Eastern North Carolina


Horses with rainbow in the backgroundPresident's Letter

I don’t know know about you but I feel like I blinked and summer passed by. Though the weather made it hard to ride at times, I hope you still had plenty of horse therapy and taking care of all the little things we never have time for like cleaning our tack. I’m ready for fall trail rides and hot apple cider.

I want to give a huge shout out to Sue Morgan and her committee in organizing Dressage 101 this year which was held at Winddrift Farm. We had rider demos and information sessions ranging from show prep, yoga on horseback, introduction to eventing, and a first aid session from a local veterinarian. Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped make this event successful!

Good luck in your fall season as we have only four shows left on the calendar!

Kick on!

Update on Show Requirements for Year-End Awards

As most of you know, the July 12th and September 13th shows have been cancelled, leaving us with only 4 shows left for this season. With this being said, this gives us a total of 9 nine shows. If you are planning on riding for End of Year awards make sure you have done the following by the end of the show season.

  1. Ride in a minimum of 5 shows
  2. Ride in the highest test of the level you are competing in (ex. Intro C, Training 3, etc)
  3. Volunteer a minimum of 8 hours at an EDCTSA sponsored event

Please let one of the Board members know if you have any questions! Thanks for all of your support. Hope to see you at the shows!
