Cayuga Dressage and Combined Training Club (CDCT) was founded in 1980 by a group of avid equestrians in Trumansburg, NY. It grew into a United States Dressage Federation Group Member Organization, a federal
501(c)(3) nonprofit, and a NYS not-for-profit. Now based out of Ithaca, we still proudly serve the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions of New York today!
CDCT is a group of horse lovers dedicated to the sports of Dressage and Eventing. We offer opportunities for education, competition, and social life. You do not need to own a horse to become a member! We host three
horse shows annually, our CDCT Keepin' It Casual Schooling Show, and our recognized shows, CDCT Dressage in Wine Country I & II. We also host clinics, symposiums, and more! Our official club colors are Merlot and Gold.
Club business and functions are managed through our board of directors and various committees. We host monthly meetings that are free and open to the public. Some are geared towards event planning while others are focused on education or fitness. Our meetings always have a healthy serving of fun, good food, and camaraderie!
***Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, meetings may be held virtually via Zoom***
