The Cayuga Dressage and Combined Training Club (CDCT) is a group of horse lovers dedicated to the two disciplines in its name: dressage and combined training. Based in Ithaca, New York, CDCT draws members from the counties surrounding Cayuga Lake and from Elmira, Binghamton, and other parts of the Southern Tier. The club offers opportunities for education, competition and social life. You do not need to own a horse to become a member!

The Cayuga Dressage and Combined Training Club welcomes horse enthusiasts from all walks of life, all religions, ethnicities and races, creeds, and sexual orientations. We are a club where differences are respected and appreciated, where we come together to affirm our common love of the horse and the arts of horsemanship. We disavow discrimination and intolerance. 

Club business and functions are managed through our board of directors and its committees. Everybody  is invited join us at all of our monthly meetings, which are free and open to the public. Some of our meetings are devoted to planning for upcoming events and some have an educational element (like our annual January body awareness session). Often there is a dish to pass meal as well! All meetings have a healthy serving of fun and camaraderie. Please contact Shannon Ryan-Dinmore for more information. 

CDCT is a Group Member Organization (GMO) of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF). If you join CDCT, you are automatically a Group Member of USDF.
