SWVADA and VADA are sponsoring a two-day Dressage Clinic with Cody Armstrong-Pierce on August 28-29 at Green Hill Park. This clinic is open to all riders, with preference to current SWVADA members in good standing. 

2021 Volunteers Needed 

WE NEED YOU - After a difficult year in 2020 that kept many of us away from the show ring, we hope to be back on schedule in 2021 with appropriate safety measures in place for the safety of all competitors and volunteers.

Volunteers are needed in all capacities. We particularly need someone to serve as volunteer coordinator for 2021, and another person as co-manager of the SWVADA/BREA shows we have scheduled.


To run a smooth and efficient show, we need lots of other volunteers; gate stewards, score sheet runners, scribe, scorers, announcer and lots of hands for set up the day before and take down at the end of the show. It is helpful to have a pickup truck for setup and take down, if someone can commit their time and vehicle.


We will schedule around ride times if you are showing.


Job preference will be given to early responders. No experience needed, we provide on the job training!

SWVADA also provides lunch for all volunteers.

Please contact SWVADA President Laura Nelson if you are interested in helping as Volunteer Coordinator, Show Manager, or in any other capacity, and thank you in advance for helping out.
