About KDA

The Kentucky Dressage Association is a group member of the United States Dressage Federation. Each year, KDA hosts dressage horse shows and sponsors several top-notch dressage clinics.

KDA’s horse shows provide dressage riders and their horses with the opportunity to compete at both nationally ranked and local level shows. Membership in KDA provides access to discounted clinics with popular dressage instructors, participation and recognition in an exceptional annual awards program, instant eligibility for prize money at some of our sanctioned shows and scholarships for those wanting to further their dressage education. From schooling shows, to recognized shows in May, July and October and breed shows exhibitors, owners and trainers are offered a wide variety of choices to meet their needs.

Since most of the horse shows take place at the Kentucky Horse Park, dressage enthusiasts have the privilege of  enjoying one of the finest facilities in the nation.

KDA members also enjoy keeping up with Dressage News via KDA’s e-newsletter the “Impulsion” which is delivered to subscribers inboxes six times per year.
