GMO Guide

Dear GMO Official,

The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is proud to have your Group Member Organization (GMO) as an affiliated club! USDF takes pride in its members and recognizes the impact GMOs have on the organization.

As GMOs continually grow and change, we feel that it is important for GMO officials to have the right tools to make the most of their efforts, from membership drives to placing ads and logos on websites and in publications. USDF provides many resourceful tools for GMOs to utilize to keep members involved in dressage, and tools that may help your GMO function to the best of its ability.

This document is intended to let you know what USDF can offer your organization as a GMO and what USDF offers your members.

The dedication of those involved with GMOs has largely contributed to the success of USDF.

Thank you for your dedication to the sport of dressage!
