The North Carolina Dressage and Combined Training Association was formed in 1976 by a group in the Greensboro / Triad area led by Sonya Griffin. As an educational organization, NCDCTA was granted 501(C)3 federal tax exempt status in 1978.
Our mission is to provide education, recognition of achievement, and promotion of the sports of dressage and combined training. The term “Combined Training” has since been replaced with “Eventing”, and both equestrian sports are enjoyed from the grass roots level all the way to the Olympics. Over the years we have sponsored and hosted international competitions, national judges seminars, learner judges programs, and countless clinics, symposiums, and national level competitions. Our Horse of the Year program tracks points and recognizes our state champions in over 30 divisions.
