....dedicated to the development of dressage and sportsmanship in our community.

Victoria-Saanich CADORA Society is part of a network of dressage clubs across Canada linked thru a national association, CADORA Inc. The Victoria-Saanich club was formed in 1976 as a means of introducing the sport of dressage to riders in this area. From a core group of 21 members in 1976 the club has grown to nearly 100 riders and owners and is one of the most active dressage clubs in Canada.

Each year the club runs several HCBC Recognized Dressage shows as well as a combined Bronze/Gold show – the popular Capital City Classic. VSC also hosts international clinicians on a regular basis which gives both riders and auditors an opportunity to improve their skills. The club offers an annual Awards Program which recognizes members at all levels who have participated in the show series or as a volunteer.

The benefits of belonging to CADORA are many, including:

  • Priority entries and reduced fees at VSC shows and clinics.
  • Eligibility for Victoria-Saanich CADORA Awards Program and Bursaries.
  • Eligibility for CADORA BC and CADORA Inc Awards and Scholarships.
  • The CADORA Omnibus of dressage tests.
  • Access to international clinicians and judges.
  • The camaraderie of like-minded riders.

Victoria-Saanich CADORA is run by a Board of Directors who meet monthly to plan club activities and by an army of volunteers who help run the shows and clinics.  The Board of Directors meetings are held the third Thursday of every month and members are welcome to attend.  If you are interested in attending one of our meetings please contact Heather Cormie at heatherdowne@shaw.ca for information on time and location.  Your Board of Directors are also happy to provide members with copies of our minutes and Treasurer’s Report, upon request, again just contact Heather and she will be happy to forward to you.

New members are always welcome.
