SNC-CDS Stacey Berry Dressage Show October 3rd, 2020 has been cancelled

The SN Chapter Board made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the CDS recognized Stacey Berry Dressage Show scheduled for Saturday, October 3, 2021 at Ironwood Event Center due to the long stretch of dangerous AQI (Air Quality Index) levels that our region is experiencing, has been experiencing, and unfortunately, is predicted to experience for the foreseeable future.

Our SN Chapter operates under the by-laws and code of conduct set forth by the California Dressage Society which includes the CDS Animal Welfare Statement. "CDS supports management and training practices which promote health, prevent disease and protect horses from unnecessary pain and injury. CDS believes that Dressage Competition is the ultimate test of training to determine the development of harmony between horse and rider. All sanctioned CDS competitions and events will be conducted under the organizationís rules regarding the well-being and welfare of horses."

The Ironwood Event Center management team was gracious and is allowing our event deposit to be transferred forward to our 2021 SN Spring Show.
