The California Dressage Society, formed in 1967, is a non-profit organization to further the interest in the equestrian sport called Dressage. It is the largest dressage organization in the nation with more than 3,400 individual members in its 30 Chapters.

CDS is governed by an 11-member elected Board of Directors with a secretary, a treasurer, plus a Central Office Manager who is responsible for the records involved in membership changes, recognition of shows, scores from the shows and the awards program.
