The Deep South Dressage and Combined Training Association was formed in 1971 to promote participation in the equine disciplines of Dressage and Combined Training. The DSDCTA became a Charter Group Member of the USDF when that organization was founded in 1974. The original DSDCTA had no chapters. Today the organization is made up of multiple regional chapters.
Emerald Coast Chapter
The Emerald Coast Chapter (ECC) is the oldest remaining chapter of the DSDCTA. Currently centered around the Ft. Walton Beach/Niceville/Destin, FL area, we have members ranging geographically from Navarre to Panama City, and into south Alabama.
Northwest Florida Chapter
Members of NWFL spans from all areas in Northwest Florida and surrounding areas which include South Alabama and Georgia. This facilitates local equestrians to congregate together and participate in horse shows, clinics, educational meetings, trail rides, and annual award banquets throughout the year. We also strive to offer friendship and camaraderie amongst the group!
The Florabama Chapter of the Deep South Dressage and Combined Training Association was formed to help promote the equestrian sports of dressage and combined training in the western portion of the Florida Panhandle and southeastern Alabama.
