    After using the electronic scribing/scoring system at the Labor Day Dressage Classic show, we have decided to abandon the use of the system for the Championships. So, this clinic is canceled.

    We are preparing for the upcoming GAIG/USDF Region 3 Championships where we will be using the new electronic scribing system! Join us! 

    In this clinic, you will learn how to use the FoxVillage paperless dressage (FVDPDS) system which will be used during the GAIG/USDF Region 3 Dressage Championship show October 8-10, 2021 at the Georgia Horse Park in Conyers. 

    Judges depend upon the scribe to quickly, accurately, legibly, and quietly record the scores and comments made about each ride.

    Judges give scores from 1 to 10 (half points are also allowed) for a predetermined set of movements, which increase in difficulty as the horse and rider moves up the levels. The scribe writes/enters the judge's scores and comments on the score sheet/computer. The comments are meant to help the rider understand each of the individual scores.

    Scribing is a great way to learn what the judges are looking for and, like other volunteer positions, it can be a great way to meet new friends and support the local dressage community.

      The GDCTA Grant has been established to provide funding support for GDCTA member-riders who are working to sharpen their riding skills. Four grants of $800* each will be offered to GDCTA members for concentrated work with a trainer of their choice within one year of receiving the grant award.


      The mission of the GDCTA Grant Program is to provide educational opportunities to members who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to and/or excellence in the sport as well as service and ambassadorship within the Association.

      The grant is meant for a GDCTA member to have the opportunity to be in a training situation that is not readily available during the course of his/her daily pattern. Grant monies must be used to participate in educational programs that include, but are not limited to: seminars, workshops, clinics and training programs offered by recognized or certified instructors.

      Grant Application:

      The Equestrian Journal 

      Each GDCTA grant recipient will receive a special journal donated by The Equestrian Journal. Journaling is a great tool to help you organize your thoughts and record your progress.
