We are excited to have this group running to serve the Tucson Dressage Club community. If you are wondering how you can still get more involved, we need help on committees! Do you like writing? We need help with newsletter submissions! Do you want to help with the recognized competitions? Join the Show Committee! Do you like putting together events? We can use help preparing for the clinics/symposiums, socials, & schooling shows! Are you craving more social activities for club members? We would love a small committee of people that organize social events! Do you like to be more on the tech side of things? Perhaps helping maintain the website would be of interest! Let us know how you would like to support dressage in our community through volunteering with Tucson Dressage Club. Contact us with your enthusiasm at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
February Region 5 Update
Show season is well underway in the southern part of our region and I hope everyone in our northern states are staying warm
and getting a little horse time this winter while we get quite a bit more snow than usual!
We are accepting bids for the 2024 Great American/USDF Region 5 Championships through February 6th. If anyone is interesting is placing a bid for the Regional Championships or has any questions about the process, please contact myself or the USDF office and we’ll be happy to help! The final date for a Regional Championship to be held in 2024 will be October 13th in order to fit into the National Championship time frame, so please keep that in mind when looking at facilities and possible weekends. The Finals will be held in Lexington, Kentucky in 2024.
Debbie McDonald is coming to Tucson for a TDC Clinic!

YUM RAISING with TDC
The Tucson Dressage Club is doing a tasty fundraiser with See's Candies! See's Candies has been making quality chocolate and candy
for over 100 years. See's Candies is a company that takes many dietary restrictions into account.
Did you know that See’s Lollypops and Little Pops® are made in a special nut-free facility?
Want to satisfy a chocolate craving? Need a great gift for celebrations like Mother's Day, birthdays, or anniversaries?
Visit our store and treat someone... including yourself!
Thank you for supporting the Tucson Dressage Club! We’ll receive all profits from any items you purchase via the Yum-Raising link.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal!
GMO Volunteer Incentive Program
Members of the GMO now are able to participate in a new award program sponsored by the USDF. GMO members log their hours on a form (link to more information and form below) and that is then validated by a GMO officer. Once a milestone has been achieved, the member submits the GMO Volunteer Incentive Program tracking sheet to USDF.
