Help to Build a Bright Future for Dressage Right in Your Own Backyard
Each year, the USDF Region 2 (Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and sections of West Virginia) sponsors eight riders who make it onto the team. The costs of clothing, travel, entry fees, shipping horses, etc. can be quite expensive. Individuals like you can help support our teams by donating to the USDF Region 2 FEI JR/YR program. Funds are maintained by the USDF and are used only to support current and future teams.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Not only will you help the Region 2 youth, but your financial support will ensure that we continue to nurture and develop our future national and international stars. To donate funds to the teams please use the link below:
Thank you for your generosity.

NEWDA EASTERN CHAPTER EQUESTRIAN TO JOIN ELITE CLUB HONORING SENIOR RIDERS AND HORSES
On June 26th, Elizabeth Rohde of Kewaskum, WI, will be inducted into special group of senior dressage riders and horses on June 28th, 2016 at the Washington County Fair Grounds in West Bend, WI. The ages of Elizabeth and her horse, Duke, qualify them to become members of The Dressage Foundation's Century Club.
The Century Club recognizes dressage riders and horses whose combined ages total 100 years or more. Elizabeth is 70-years-old and Duke is 30. In addition to having ages totaling 100 or more, horse and rider perform a dressage test of any level at a dressage show and are scored by a dressage judge. The Dressage Foundation provides a Century Club ribbon and wall plaque to each horse and rider team. Local dressage clubs, family and friends help to make the ride into a celebratory event.
The Century Club was formed at The Dressage Foundation in 1996, at the suggestion of noted dressage judge and instructor, Dr. Max Gahwyler. The intent was to encourage older dressage riders to remain active in the sport. Since that time, the Century Club has grown into a meaningful and popular endeavor and has over 225 members to-date.
Dressage is a word drawn from the French verb for "to train." Dressage is both a method of training horses and a competitive sport, and is designed to develop correct movement in the horse.
TDF's Century Club is sponsored by Platinum Performance. "At Platinum Performance horse health is our mission. Since 1996, we’ve been committed to providing high quality equine nutritional supplements that are developed, tested, and made with care to ensure results. Visit www.platinumperformance.com/equine for more information."

The New Dressage Association Was established in 2009 in response to the changing needs of the Wisconsin dressage community. At NEWDA, our main focus is on education and community building, which we believe gives our members the tools and environment they need to develop themselves as equestrians. Not only is it our goal as an organization to support our members in their pursuits, but to also build strong and meaningful relationships within the greater equestrian community.
NEWDA's mission is to create opportunities for its members to engage in dressage for their enjoyment, for their improvement, and for the benefit of the horse, through education and competition in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support. We encourage and expect our members to be ambassadors for the sport of dressage both within our state and the equestrian community as a whole.We invite you to browse through our website to learn more about our association and its offerings.
NEWDA offers membership opportunities at many levels: Business, Family, Individual, Junior and Subscribing. With your membership, you become eligible to participate in NEWDA's many programs and events, andto receive membership discounts when offered. Check out our "Membership" tab for more details.
