Georgia Dressage & Combined Training Association


GDCTA is a member-focused and member-run organization that depends on volunteers! We encourage you to become involved in any of the many activities we offer. Have a new idea? Bring it to the board at a meeting.
 Share the excitement from the inside: 
  • Meet international judges, competitors, and learn how the competitions work.

  • Scribing at a show is a great educational experience to help you improve as a rider! 

  • Help a Junior rider put a winning sash on her horse for the victory gallop! 

  • Participate as a ring steward in order to better understand our sport. 

  • If you’re a trainer, volunteer your time for a Kudzu Klinic.

    Volunteering is fun and educational!

    Never volunteered before?

    No problem!

    We’ll walk you through it.

    Complete training provided!

    Join the expanding list of volunteers.

    Now is your chance to give back to the organization that continually strives to make your dressage and eventing dreams and goals a reality. We are in constant need of volunteers for our wonderful recognized shows, schooling shows and many other activities. Sign up form.
