DVCTA QUAD SQUAD
So you think you want to dance with your horse, but going down centerline solo is a bit intimidating? Join the Quad Squad! Each team consists of 6-12 horses that perform exhibition rides at prestigious events within our region. Venues have included Dressage at Devon, Fair Hill International, Jersey Fresh CDI, Plantation Field’s BEST.EVENT.EVER, Ride for Life’s Dancing Horse Challenge and our annual DVCTA recognized Spring Dressage Show. Quadrille riding is all about synchrony, spacing and alignment and is an excellent way to vary your horse’s training routine. Horses and riders both love it! If you and your horse work well with others, come join us!
Riders on the Quad Squad volunteer their time to practice and perform with the teams and their devotion is greatly appreciated. Riders must be active members of DVCTA in order to be considered for a team. We have teams at First, Second and Third Level based on the horse’s level of training and the rider’s quadrille experience. There is a $25 participation fee payable to DVCTA for each team member to help cover costs of costumes, insurance and ring fees.
Quadrille Playdates are planned at local indoor arenas during the winter (January – March) to introduce newcomers to quadrille. These events are fundraisers for the Quad Squad and anyone is welcome to attend – DVCTA members receive a discount! To register for upcoming Quadrille Playdates, check back with us in December!
Past, present and future quadrille riders are invited to attend our Quadrille Dinner that is held every year in March. Plans are finalized for the upcoming year and First Level Team members are picked. It’s always good to bring a calendar to this meeting!
Volunteers are always needed for our performances and hours earned at Quad Squad rehearsals and exhibition rides count towards DVCTA year-end awards.
