We are the Santa Barbara County Chapter of California Dressage Society.

The purpose of SBC-CDS is to bolster interest in Dressage. Dressage as an equitation term means the gradual harmonious development of a horse’s physical and mental condition with the aim of improving its natural gaits and developing a perfect understanding with its rider.

The Chapter’s program is educational, and is designed primarily to offer a framework in which individuals can progress with the schooling of themselves and their horses.

Activities such as riding clinics, dressage shows and education are directed toward a better general understanding of Dressage.

To foster our riding community, sometimes we share events and clinics sponsored by other organizations. The SBC-CDS has no involvement in coordinating or presenting these events.

If you’d like further information regarding a particular event that’s not sponsored by SBC-CDS, please check the calendar details for contact and sponsor information.
