Who We Are and What We Do
The Columbia Dressage and Combined Training Association was chartered as an official Group Member Organization of the United States Dressage Federation in 1988. Our mission, then as now, was to provide educational and competition opportunities for the small but growing group of mid-Missouri equestrians interested in dressage and eventing (formerly known as combined training). In the last 25 years our membership has grown into a vibrant organization of around 70 people, and our club has sponsored many clinics with Olympic veterans. We are proud to announce that we are now an official 501-C(3) organization.
