About Us

Mission Statement


Promote the sports of Dressage and Eventing through competition, education and recognition of individual achievement.

The North Carolina Dressage and Combined Training Association (NCDCTA) was established in 1973. Our organization has grown from very humble beginnings and exceeded 670 members and 475 registered horses in 2016.

The NCDCTA is one of 16 GMO's  (General Member Organizations) in Region 1 of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF).  We work closely with the Region and the USDF throughout the year.  The Region 1 Championships have been held in North Carolina regularly.

Come join the fun!
