CDS Adult Amateur Clinic Participation 

SBC-CDS adheres to the rules governing participation in the CDS Adult Amateur Clinic as established by our governing body, the California Dressage Society. In addition, application for participation in a chapter drawing for the CDS Adult Amateur Clinic requires that the following provisions be met:

  1. Applicant Eligibility: Applicant must be a current amateurmember of SBC-CDS at the time of the drawing.
  2. Applicant must be an active member who has demonstrated support of the chapter with volunteer work,  hosting of a chapter social or educational event, etc. within the year preceding the drawing. If volunteer work is sole criteria, applicants must have completed a minimum of 4 hours of volunteering at a show or the equivalent time at a chapter event. 
  3. Any member who has been the chapter’s sponsored representative to the AmateurClinicmust wait at least a year before re-applying for the drawing. This restriction does not prevent the individual from making direct, private application to the clinic organizer for an unused clinic slot or, if such a slot is obtained, from entering the chapter drawing the next year.

4.The drawing will be held at the chapter’s annual meeting.

5.Applicant shall submit his or her application at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting, and must be present to win the drawing.

6.The names of one attendee and two alternates will be drawn.

7.Attendee agrees to write an account of his or her clinic experience for publication in the next edition of the chapter newsletter following the clinic.

8.Applicant agrees to write a thank-you note to CDS immediately upon completion of the clinic.

9.Applicant agrees that as a participant in the clinic and a representative of SBC-CDS, he or she is to be receptive to the clinician’s teaching and training methods. Questions are encouraged if instructions are not understood, but resistance to the clinician’s instruction or criticism of the clinician’s methods is inappropriate. Respect for the clinician is also demonstrated by proper turnout and attendance while the clinician is teaching other riders.
