    DO YOU HOST GDCTA-RECOGNIZED SCHOOLING SHOWS?


    Dear GDCTA-recognized schooling show organizers:

    The GDCTA is offering your volunteers an opportunity to participate in the Wilsun Custom Horse Products Volunteer of the Year for 2024 volunteer incentive program by volunteering AT YOUR SHOWS.

    We are offering this incentive to your show volunteers for a $25.00 buy-in fee (https://gdcta.wildapricot.org/Sys/Store/Products/291510). That fee covers all your shows in 2024. All you have to do is send Caren Caverly (ccaverly@comcast.net) by email your volunteers names and total number of hours worked on an excel sheet. GDCTA will promote your shows as participating in this program. If you are interested, let Caren know.

    GDCTA is a member-focused and member-run organization that depends on volunteers!  We encourage you to become involved in any of the many activities we offer.  Have a new idea?  Bring it to the board at a meeting.

    Share the excitement from inside the events: 

    • Meet international judges, competitors, and learn how the competitions work.

    • Scribing at a show is a great educational experience to help you improve as a rider! 

    • Help a Junior rider put a winning sash on her horse for the victory gallop! 

    • Participate as a ring steward in order to better understand our sport. 

    • If you’re a trainer, volunteer your time for a Kudzu Klinic

      The GDCTA Grant has been established to provide funding support for GDCTA member-riders who are working to sharpen their riding skills. Four grants of $800* each will be offered to GDCTA members for concentrated work with a trainer of their choice within one year of receiving the grant award.

      • First, please register online to let us know you will be applying by June 1st.
      • Second, complete this form (PDF) and email it with appropriate accompanying references and details to Janie Pride at janiepride@yahoo.com 

       

      Mission

      The mission of the GDCTA Grant Program is to provide educational opportunities to members who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to and/or excellence in the sport as well as service and ambassadorship within the Association.

       

      The grant is meant for a GDCTA member to have the opportunity to be in a training situation that is not readily available during the course of his/her daily pattern. Grant monies must be used to participate in educational programs that include, but are not limited to: seminars, workshops, clinics and training programs offered by recognized or certified instructors.

       

      Requirements

      These grants represent an investment by GDCTA. The recipient understands that the membership will benefit as a result of the recipient’s experience, therefore it is a requirement that the recipient will:

      • write an article for the GDCTA newsletter, Collected Remarks, for use on the GDCTA website and for GDCTA’s use in other publications

      • give a verbal report at a GDCTA board meeting as soon as possible after their training is complete

      • volunteer at least 8 hours (or the equivalent of one day) at a GDCTA function within a year of receiving the grant.

       

      *I understand that I will receive an initial $600 of the grant after details of my training are confirmed, and one month before my training; the balance in the amount of $200 will be sent to me when the GDCTA newsletter editors receive my training experience article.


      One grant will be awarded in each of the following categories:

      • Adult Amateur – Dressage

      • Professional

      • Combined Training

      • Jr/YR

       

      Eligibility:

      • GDCTA members in good standing.

      • US Citizen or permanent US resident holding Green card

        Riders:

        • If you are logging in to pay, you can re-register - select your ticket type: rider + stabling or rider + haul in OR let us know at webmaster@gdcta.org which you prefer and we'll set it up and email you the invoice to make it easy for you to pay online.
        • If you are adding auditors, you will also have to re-register or, again, let us know at webmaster@gdcta.org to add them to your invoice. 
        • If your groom plans on staying the entire day they should pay an audit fee because we buy/order lunch. If they don’t pay an audit fee, we can’t keep track of who has paid for lunch and who hasn’t. If they plan to just come and help for your ride and don’t plan to stay all day and/or eating lunch, then they do not have to pay the audit fee.

        Stabling is open at noon on Friday - schooling available from 1pm-7pm Friday.


        Thank you!


        GDCTA is pleased to host Shelly Francis, a long-time American A-squad Grand Prix rider, at Shannondale Farm in Milton, GA.

        Shelly Francis is one of the few elite high-performance trainers in the U.S. with a long career as a successful international competitor aboard horses she has trained herself. Her long list of accolades includes representing the U.S. as an alternate at two Olympic Games, as well as making the U.S. teams for two World Equestrian Games, two World Cups, and many Nation Cups. Some of her most notable victories include her 4* Grand Prix Freestyle wins at Aachen in 2018 and at Hagen Horses and Dreams in 2019. 

        Shelly’s talent extends beyond just training as her ability to teach riders is second to none. Shelly’s students range from green to international Grand Prix competitors. Shelly’s training focuses on teaching riders to be fair, clear, and effective to create a harmonious relationship with their horse.

        After taking a brief showing hiatus the past couple of years to take the time to develop him, Shelly is excited to be now competing Dante, her own 17.3h black Hanoverian gelding by Danone I out of the same dam as Danilo. Shelly has high hopes for Dante and is looking forward to working towards exciting goals for the future.

          • Session D1 involves practice judging full tests in each of the levels at a recognized competition.
          • Session D2 is similar to the D1 Session but with more emphasis on the testing situation and prepares candidates for the final exam.
          • Final Exam is comprised of both a written and practical exam. The written exam is all True/False and multiple choice, while the practical exam is a combination of judging full tests and some oral judging as well.
