The Eastern New York Dressage & Combined Training Association (ENYDCTA) is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the equestrian sports of Dressage and Combined Training. Since incorporating December 3, 1977, ENYDCTA has grown from 25 to nearly 200 members. Although it has members throughout the northeast, ENYDCTA serves a general territory stretching north to Warrensburg, south to Rhinebeck, east into Massachusetts, and west to Otego, NY.
ENYDCTA is a Group Member Organization of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF, Region 8) and an affiliate of the United States Eventing Association (USEA, Area 1). We are committed to promoting dressage and combined training while encouraging members to improve their riding skills and abilities.
ENYDCTA members receive the monthly newsletter, The Piaffe Flyer, access to educational clinics and lectures, discounts on club sponsored events, an adult summer camp, opportunities to compete in team events, scholarships, and year-end awards. Members of ENYDCTA also become group members of the USDF and receive benefits such as discounts on national dressage publications and the opportunity to attend dressage judges' forums and instructor-certification programs.
ENYDCTA also provides competitive opportunities for all regional equestrians through its annual recognized dressage and eventing shows - Dressage at Saratoga and the USEA Area 1 Old Chatham Horse Trials.
