2019 GDCTA OFFICERS

President – provides leadership in furthering the mission of GDCTA and supervises all of the business and affairs of the board

President: Caren Caverly

I have served on the GDCTA Board for the past 11 years and as President for the last 8 years.  I am also the Chairperson for GDCTA Insurance, Annual Awards Gala and the Year End Awards.  While on the board at GDCTA, I proposed and managed the 2009-2018 Schooling Shows at Wills Park and at the Georgia International Horse Park.  I also organized the Gil Merrick Seminar along with June Brewer.

 

I have been riding for over 55 years with the last 14 years focused on dressage.  I currently own 1 horse, Solant (retired).  I have also served as Treasurer for the Georgia Arabian Association for 4 years.

 

My professional experience includes working as Manager and Buyer for Tack Tavern for 8 ½ years, followed by 15 years in the car business.  I am currently the Assistant Manager at Dover Saddlery.

 

On-going goals for the GDCTA include getting the Region 3 Championships back to Conyers and making them the most fun and successful championships.  We also hope to continue the growing success of the Awards Gala. 

 

As President, I would like to see GDCTA host more educational seminars and junior activities.  My personal goal is to make GDCTA the best GMO in the country – the one every other GMO’s look to as the example of how things are done!
