Kettle Moraine Chapter Information


The Kettle Moraine (KM) chapter serves members from the Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, and southeastern Wisconsin region.

The Kettle Moraine (KM) Chapter serves southeast Wisconsin from Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Oconomowoc, and Eagle to northern Illinois. Come join us! Our members include professionals, amateurs, riders interested in showing and members interested in staying in touch with other dressage riders. We have chapter meetings for planning and discussing issues, but we know drive times and work schedules make it difficult to attend. We do try to vary the days of the week and locations for chapter meetings. An effort is also made to keep members informed on topics of interest at both chapter and state level. Feedback on issues is solicited via email and surveys; so even if you can’t attend meetings you can stay informed.
