California Dressage Society
Santa Cruz Chapter

We are located in beautiful Santa Cruz county in central California. We have the Pacific Ocean on our west and the Santa Cruz mountains and redwoods to our east.

We have a membership of about 140 members. Our CDS chapter has grown significantly from the 16 core members who formed it in 1982. Our board meets every other month, on the first Wednesday of the month. Our members are close knit and enjoy meeting for social events and educational clinics throughout the year.

Each year we host the USEF/USDF/CDS recognized Coastal Classic Dressage Show. The show features musical freestyles, quadrilles, and local wine sampling.
