The California Dressage Society was formed in 1967 as a nonprofit organization to further interest in dressage. It is now one
of the largest dressage organizations in the nation with more than 4000 members in its organization. CDS is governed by
an 11-member elected Board of Directors with a secretary and a treasurer, plus a Central Office Manager who is responsible
for the records involved in membership changes, recognition of shows, scores from the shows and the awards program.
A monthly newsletter plus an annual membership roster are sent to all of the members. CDS sponsors various educational
events such as clinics, instructors’ seminars and Annual Meetings as well as the Annual Championship Show. The USDF /
Great American Regional Finals are held in conjunction with this show to determine standings for USDF and USEF.
The local chapters operate rather independently under the CDS By-Laws and an elected governing board of volunteers,
which is responsible for local shows and educational and social events.
