NEWDA's mission is to create opportunities for its members to participate in dressage for their own enjoyment, improvement, and to benefit the horse through education and competition in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support. We encourage our members to be ambassadors for the sport of dressage both within our state and in the equestrian community at large. We invite you to browse our website to learn more about our association and its offerings.
The New Dressage Association (NEWDA), a USDF Group Member Organization, was established in 2009. Our philosophy is of education, combined with community and a supportive environment which are essential foundations to help equestrians develop themselves and their horses. Additionally, our purpose is to improve the general understanding of dressage through clinics, competitions, forums and seminars. NEWDA also assists and cooperates with local and regional dressage organizations in matters of common concern; creates and promotes educational opportunities for our members and the dressage community so that they may achieve their personal goals and establishes and maintains helpful, friendly relationships within the membership and equine community.
The New Dressage Association or “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, and to receive membership benefits and discounts when offered.
