Horse Country Chapter
“Horse Country Dressage and Combined Training” (HCDCT) is an association of men and women from the central Florida area who share a passion for horses. HCDCT was founded in early 2009 as a local chapter of Deep South Dressage and Combined Training Association (DSDCTA). Our meetings are usually held in the Ocala area.
Our primary goal as an organization is to promote the welfare of the horse by fostering both an understanding and practical implementation of the time-tested principles of classical dressage training – – the original “natural horsemanship.” We believe that a correct dressage foundation is beneficial to horses engaged in virtually all disciplines. We welcome new members from all disciplines, with all breeds of horses. We focus on what we have in common: A genuine love of horses and therefore a concern for their welfare – along with a desire to support and encourage each other in our respective equine endeavors, and to have fun in the process! Events we promote include educational opportunities, social gatherings, equine-related outings, and clinics.
Membership in the Horse Country Chapter includes Group Membership with USDF.
Come join the fun!
