Georgia Dressage & Combined Training Association

Kudzu Klinics

The Kudzu Klinic Program is designed to provide an opportunity for low-cost instruction of correct basics for lower-level riders and their horses. A Trainer or Lecturer is donating their time for the betterment of the sport and enjoyment of our riders.  For example, in a Dressage Ride-A-Test format there will be one to two riders in each 45-minute session, with a maximum of 8 sessions.

Lectures may be given at the clinics. Auditor "walk-ins" are welcome, though pre-registration is required due to COVID and so that the lecturer can bring enough material for all participants.


1.      You must be a GDCTA member to ride.

2.      A copy of a current negative Coggins certificate must be sent with entry.

3.      Riders must include payment with entry to reserve a place in each clinic. Pay online or by check.

4.      All entries must include a signed copy of the GDCTA Hold Harmless agreement.

Upcoming Kudzu Klinics

    • August 13, 2022
    • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • Wills Park Equestrian Center 11915 Wills Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30009

    An amazing Kudzu Klinic opportunity to come learn to Scribe for a 'r' dressage judge at the lovely Wills Park Equestrian Center in Milton, GA during the GDCTA Summer Finals Schooling Show. Everyone else will be there - so let's join them!  

    Did you know that GDCTA will again host the very important, very large Region 3 Championships in October at the Horse Park? That means we need skilled scribes October 7-9. We, and the hosts of the nearly 70 GDCTA-recognized schooling shows  this year, also need scribes for schooling shows - both eventing and dressage. We need scribes for our recognized dressage shows. Look at the calendar and find out how may times we need scribes - it's almost every weekend! 

    During this Kudzu Klinic, you will spend an hour or so practicing scribing the various tests with Danielle Perry 'r' judge. Scribes-in-training will have 1:1 attention during the klinic where you will have more opportunities to ask specific questions and feel the rhythm of the tests, judging, and catching it all on paper! Once you have completely this fun event, we hope you will continue to scribe in our region! 

    Why scribe? 
    1. You get so much information from the judge on what they are looking for as they judge through the day to help you train and show better!

    2. You can amaze your friends with new terminology that matches dressage movements instead of 'more forward.'

    3. Parents can flabbergast their equestrian children when they say something technically correct - like, that horse needs to cover more ground. 

    4. It's just a lot of fun and it helps out the shows so much!
