NHDEA (formerly known as the Southern New Hampshire Dressage & Combined Training Association) was formed more than two decades ago when six dressage riders banded together in an effort to attract clinicians to New Hampshire. Several years later, local eventing riders wanted to get involved, so they joined the group. Through the years the organization has grown in size, expanding membership from Maine to Massachusetts. Today, the club is almost 100 members strong and continues to grow. We offer club-sponsored activities throughout the active riding season, from early spring through late fall. NHDEA is a group member organization of United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Region 8.
We strive to provide quality competitive opportunities for our membership and riding community through shows and group activities. In order to fulfill our mission we continually communicate with the membership, the dressage and eventing community, and the general public, on a regular basis through publications and other media.
