Kentucky Dressage Association is a group member organization of the United States Dressage Federation. Each year, KDA hosts dressage horse shows and sponsors several top-notch dressage clinics.

KDA's horse shows provide dressage riders and their horses with the opportunity to compete at both nationally recognized and local level shows. A membership to KDA provides access to discounted clinics with popular dressage instructors, participation and recognition in an exceptional annual awards program, instant eligibility for prize money at some of our sanctioned shows and scholarships for those wanting to further their dressage education. From schooling shows, to recognized shows in May, July and October and breed shows exhibitors, owners and trainers are offered a wide variety of choices to meet their needs.

Since most of the horse shows take place at the Kentucky Horse Park, dressage enthusiasts have the privilege of  enjoying one of the finest facilities in the nation.



Dressage Complex Renovation Project-

KDA wants to have see a world class dressage complex at the Kentucky Horse Park.  To achieve this goal KDA is a key participant with the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation and the Kentucky Horse Park in the effort to design a world class complex and raise the money to make our vision a reality. Much thanks goes to the efforts of Roco Gibala, Sheila Woerth has worked very hard to develop plans and raise money towards this project. Please contact Sheila Woerth with Dressage Complex design questions, suggestions and fund raising ideas. Renovating the Dressage Complex is the last piece of the Kentucky Horse Park's competition venue's improvements.  

Efforts to replace several rings with improved drainage and footing is the first stage KDA is working on for the Dressage Complex, for more details and information contact Sheila Weorth
