About Us

The Arkansas Dressage Society (ADS) is a general member organization (GMO) of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) dedicated to the sport of dressage.  We are fully compliant as not for profit.  We are a 501(c)3 non profit organization.

Our dressage shows are located within the central part of the state around Little Rock.  We sponsor 5-8 schooling shows per year.  See the “Horse Shows” page for information related to our shows.  Our show season runs from March through October, wrapping up with a dynamite awards banquet to celebrate our members and silent auction to launch the new year.  The silent auction is biggest fundraiser of the year with the proceeds going to fund our schooling shows and educational events.

We offer dressage tests as determined by USDF as well as USEA dressage tests, western dressage tests, equitation classes, and more.  Please see our class list for a complete list.  This is a great way to practice and get feedback on your tests prior to attending a recognized show.

Currently, we do not host any recognized shows, but our region 9 neighbors.  Many of our members attend shows in Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana.

The Arkansas Dressage Society is available to all equine enthusiasts and sponsors whether or not you ride.  We invite you to join us and hope to see you soon.
