Why Join California Dressage Society?
By Paula Langan

Although many members join CDS because they are going to show, and some only renew until they are ready to enter a show, CDS membership fees do not just support shows, but also communication, education and membership services.

The first thing to point out is that right off the top starting in 2004, the CDS sends $20 of your $70 membership to USDF to sign you up as a Group Member of United States Dressage Federation. That figure accounts for over $75,000 of CDS expenses.
