2017 Board of Directors... Get Involved with your chapter!
Anyone with any interest in volunteering and in helping to keep our local CDS Chapter rolling forward is encouraged to join the 2017 board. All board positions are available. We all work as a team to host clinics and shows. If you enjoy our chapter shows, clinics and activities, please consider joining the board to keep them fresh and fun! Dressage, like anything else, is always changing progressively forward and it takes an active involved board to keep our local chapter up to date and current whether it's rule changes, new types of competition, styles of dress, even our horses! The dressage horses we're riding and competing today are not the horses that were being bred a mere 25 years ago. Please consider getting involved!
If you are interested in joining the board, please contact Jennifer Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
