Grand Valley Dressage Society (GVDS) wants to help mitigate these scenarios from happening to you.  Before you join every dressage organization there is, spend an hour with GVDS via Zoom learning about the various memberships available, what is required depending on specific plans and goals, and how to maximize the memberships you have.  Think about what memberships you need to help you accomplish your equestrian plan.

Do any of these apply to you and your horse?

The weather is preventing you from riding and keeping your horse from losing condition during the winter months.

  • You are looking for new routines to cross-train your horse.

  • You want a plan for working with your horse on the ground or in the saddle that is simple to follow, fun to perform, and at the same time improves your equine’s strength and agility.

  • Your horse is recovering from an injury and you want a rehabilitation plan to follow to prevent a recurrent injury.

Then this Zoom Program is for you!
