GVDS serves the classic and western dressage community on the Western Slope of Colorado.

Our calendar is full throughout the year with educational programs, shows, and clinics.

Learning about our sport can be a lifetime endeavor - and fun to boot!

Join the club. Volunteer. Be a sponsor. Come to an event.

 "The object of dressage is the development of the horse into a happy athlete through harmonious education."
-Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI)
