    Since GDCTA is not hosting the money earning region 3 championship show either in 2023 or 2024 (and it now looks like GA has been cut out of 2025), we have had to make some decisions regarding our schedules and programs to save money for at least the next two years. Details to be shared soon!

    The Dressage Foundation Century Club

    The Century Club recognizes dressage riders and horses whose combined ages total 100 years or more. Horse and rider perform a test of any level at a show (schooling or recognized) or event and are scored by a dressage judge or professional. The Dressage Foundation (TDF) will send a beautiful black and gold ribbon to be presented to the team at the show. Following the ride, TDF sends a Century Club plaque to the new team. TDF's Century Club is sponsored by Platinum Performance.

    The driving force behind horse shows is our amazing volunteers! GDCTA’s Liz Faso Memorial Volunteer of the Year Program sponsored by Wilsun Custom Horse Products exists to increase the ease of participation, provide incentives, and recognize the tireless efforts of volunteers.

    We are looking for an enthusiastic Volunteer Coordinator to help us recruit and manage the many volunteers needed for the GAIG/USDF Region 3 Championships October 7-9, 2022, being held at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, Georgia.

    We need you NOW to recruit, manage, and maintain the necessary tracking for the volunteer incentive program.

    • You will attend the event to manage the volunteers you have recruited.
    • You will record all volunteer hours for the GDCTA’s Liz Faso Memorial Volunteer of the Year Program sponsored by Wilsun Custom Horse Products.

    The Volunteer Coordinator works closely with volunteers to come up with a schedule that works for everyone. The Volunteer Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the right number of volunteers is available for this event.

    This position involves a great deal of contact with our members; therefore, our Volunteer Coordinator must have excellent interpersonal communication skills. The Volunteer Coordinator may use social media, post volunteer opportunities online and/or call members who have expressed interest in volunteering.

    If you thrive interacting with people, have excellent communication skills, are organized, and have a passion for creating meaningful relationships, we want to meet you. This is a one-time only paid position. GDCTA is offering $500 for this 3-day event and will provide accommodations. Contact Caren Caverly at / 770-413-4025 as soon as possible.
