With great disappointment, we must announce that the CDI portion of this event has been cancelled. Entries were too low to justify holding it. The GADS I & II shows will run as planned. Late entries will be accepted.


April 8-9: Greater Atlanta Dressage Southern I

April 10: Greater Atlanta Dressage Southern II
