GVDS Programs

Not all our events require being mounted - or even having a horse! Our educational programs take a holistic approach to our journey in this sport and recognize our members benefit from a wide range of learning opportunities, mental and physical, for ourselves and our horses. Through Zoom, we have been able to keep the schedule full for you!
