Sponsorships & Media

With over 400 members, the Houston Dressage Society (HDS) is the largest dressage club in United States Dressage Federation Region 9 (Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi).  HDS typically hosts 6 dressage competitions each year, including the region’s only international competition (Concours Dressage Internationale, or CDI), and the Region 9 Championships.  

 

HDS also hosts educational events at facilities across the Houston metroplex.

HDS offers opportunities for businesses to advertise in our quarterly e-newsletter and in any of our show programs.  In addition we have per-show and annual sponsorship packages that provide additional promotional value, as well as perks for your farm or business.  HDS is a 501(c)3 non-profit, which creates options for tax-deductible sponsorships as well.
