The purpose of the Association is to promote and encourage an appreciation for and a high standard of accomplishment in dressage and eventing throughout Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan (the “Region”) primarily through educational programs. In furtherance of this goal, the Association will work closely with local, regional and national organizations.

The Wisconsin Dressage & Combined Training Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers. Through their efforts, our organization offers many services to eventing and dressage enthusiasts throughout the State of Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula of Michigan. WDCTA is proudly recognized as a Charter Member of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF).
