About Us

The Deep South Dressage and Combined Training Association (DSDCTA) was formed in 1971 to promote participation in the equine disciplines of Dressage and Combined Training.  The DSDCTA became a Charter Group Member of the USDF when that organization was founded in 1974.  The original DSDCTA had no chapters.  Today the organization is made up of multiple regional chapters:

  • Emerald Coast
  • Florabama
  • Horse Country
  • Northwest Florida
  • Suwannee Valley

DSDCTA offers educational opportunities in the forms of scholarships, clinics, recognized shows, and schooling shows for its members.  DSDCTA recognizes rider achievements through a Year End Awards Program.


For your convenience, we’ve included an up-to-date Events Calendar which includes dates, locations and contact information on upcoming clinics and events, both sponsored and non-sponsored.

Join Us

Since it’s inception, the membership of the DSDCTA has been the veritable Who’s Who list of Dressage people: USEF judges (“r” up through “O”) and Technical Delegates, Olympic Candidates, Young Rider Champions, USEF Dressage Committee Members, International Clinicians and Trainers, Breeders, Instructors, just to name a few and most importantly, you. We hope you will join us.
