    Look for the Iowa Dressage & Eventing Association. Used to be called the Iowa Dressage & Combined training assn.

    There are several Iowans here on the board, hopefully they will have some good references. I know names but it's been years since I've been there. There are a few very good ones, but the pickings are very slim.

    Glad I found this thread....my husband has a 2nd interview in Sioux City in 3 weeks! I have briefly started googling about barns/dressage, but haven't come up with anything besides the IaDCTA, which looks like an awesome organization.

    Is anyone out there is the Sioux City area? I am also a NARHA Regsitered Instructor and a Program Manager at a large center in Indiana and I would love to continue that line of work, but when I did a search on the NARHA website, there aren't any Therapeutic Centers affiliated with NARHA within 3 or so hours....anybody got leads on those types of centers?

    Thank for your help-

    Smile Dressage in Iowa

    Hi, I am new to the COTH forums, but I live in Sioux City and take dressage lessons, and am a member of the Iowa Dressage and Combined Training Association. There is another association called the Eastern Iowa Dressage and Eventing Assn but those members live mostly in the eastern part of the state.
    The IAC&CT is a wonderful organization. If you are interested they have a website (you an google it, it comes right up)
    There are dressage shows all over Iowa which is part of Region 4, along with S.Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Minnesota. The sport is alive and well here in Iowa. Welcome!
